"What if" scenarios can be so much fun. What's the craziest thing that could happen? And what would it feel like if it came true? Well, sometimes the craziest things do, in fact, turn out to be true. And what do you do then? You make a podcast, of course! On This is Actually Happening, everyday people share the wildest experiences of their lives. Podcast hosts Whit Missildine and Andrew Waits dig deep and reveal every facet of these not-so-impossible tales.
This is Actually Happening takes these stories and recounts them in detail. Each tale is one-of-a-kind. Some are not always easy to hear. But all are compelling and ask questions that don't always have answers. The best part of this podcast is how the narrators tell the stories. Every account is genuine, with no dramatization and no fictional excerpts. Missildine and Waits introduce the protagonists and ask questions. Most of the time, it's left to these real people-everyday folks-to tell their own stories. Tales of the public are sometimes edited but always personal and moving.
Every story has a reminder of what the world can offer. The tellers have been to the edge and back and want to share their experiences. This Wondery podcast will leave listeners wanting to know more from the moment they hit playread less
