Actually Happening 72: Mildly Interesting

Actually Happening

Yes, it's "Actually Happening," a panel game podcast with a healthy dose of obscure trivia, historical nonsense and terrible puns. Led by the obviously related Kevin Clark and Dennis Clark, and aided by their distinguished guests (none less so than Anna Grafton, Steven Padnick and Sarah Wheaton), our teams attempt funny and occasionally accurate answers to questions from referee Victoria Nece. Alternate weeks feature "Not Actually Happening," shorter episodes where we talk about things that didn't, well, actually happen. If you happen to learn something along the way we swear it’s not our fault. www.itsactuallyhappening.com

Actually Happening

In which we discuss some of life’s smaller mysteries, do some literal navel gazing, and find more excuses to answer questions with the word “Space!”.
