34 episodes

A podcast for actors, by actors; The 98% explores what life is *really* like for the majority of actors and performers who, rather than trying to find an outfit for the Oscar’s, are trying to find an outfit that makes them look as close to an 1850’s aristocrat as possible for an audition in 24 hours.
In a world where we only really hear from successful and well known actors it can often feel like you're the only one working a day job and changing in a fast food restaurant public toilet for an audition on your lunch break - that is not the case! We share anecdotes, interviews, advice and laugh, lament and talk openly and honestly about the real #actorslife

*Disclaimer* - Our podcast does not include disturbing content (unless you count toe curlingly embarrassing stories as disturbing) but it does have some swearing which is why episodes are marked as explicit!

THANK YOU FOR CREATING THIS

I’m graduating drama school in two months and I could not have found this podcast at a better time. Thank you so much for creating this - I’ve laughed so much and learnt so much from these episodes - not gonna lie they’re so addictive and Ive found myself binge listening to them a lot! Thank you thank you thank you!!! x

How am I only finding this now!?!?!?

Absolutely love this podcast! Had heard the name in a few forums but always had other “more important” podcasts to catch up on. MY BAD! I’M SORRY!!! Can’t stop listening to it now.
The issues are thoroughly discussed, the jokes are just right, the fact that they are “loud” only helps with listening in tube-screeching commutes. Everything is awesome!
And can I just be friends with Alexa and Katie now, please? I mean, struggling actresses who create a platform to inform and help others and keep creative while waiting for the next audition/job!? That’s me and my The Acting Edit!!!!!!!
Bloody brilliant. Congrats.

A True Saving Grace

This podcast is the only thing getting me through a period of not being able to afford living in London and having to move back to my parents'. The subjects are relevant and vital to those belonging to the 98% of actors scraping their way through life. Hard topics are paired with amusing anecdotes and gentles meows and it is thoroughly and enormously enjoyable.
