This Is Actually Happening

 2 people rated this podcast
The uncanny, extraordinary, true stories of events that have dramatically altered the lives of ordinary people; a son is shot by his own father, a woman's sister develops multiple personalities, a man wakes up in the morgue. These are riveting, moving and often haunting stories that will stick with you long after you listen.

"This is gripping offbeat storytelling. Each episode consists of one person telling his or her crisis story, in their own words, without interruption. Sometimes it's a story about a medical event, sometimes it's a terrible relationship, sometimes it's a crime, sometimes it's something that happened in childhood, sometimes it's almost impossible to figure out what the reality of the situation really was. With each story, the listener is given a chance to find out what it's like to live in a reality that has been shattered. I definitely recommend this one."
