Actually Happening

A SocietyCulture and History podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
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.

Recent Episodes

This is the last episode taped way back in the halcyon days of 2015. Yes, we’re slow to get these things out. What. Nobody’s paying for this. This ‘week’ we bring you Julia Child, voting machines, the earliest evidence of pants, and congressional women’s restrooms.
I don’t even know what schedule we’re using for these things anymore, but if you need stories of civil war badasses as much as we do, you might like this episode. We’ve also got the biggest single rock ever made and a sex-changing yew tree that is, for some reason, kept in a cage.
The passage of the Habeas Corpus Act via a fat joke, A Benjamin Franklin story complete with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles restructuring, the oldest ever message in a bottle, and a German town that may, or may not, actually exist.
