NOT REALLY is a new podcast about how to be fabulous, who to avoid, what not to wear, and why nothing matters, hosted by two of New York City's most subversive cultural crackpots. Hosts Paul and Patrik spent their twenties gaining credibility in the fashion trenches and now their thirties are all about getting even. Join them and their uproarious roster of suspicious New York somebodies, as they weigh in on topics they have no right to discuss.
Designers, drag queens, performers, and pop stars will convene to prove that when it comes to life, love, and the pursuit of artistry, there's NOT REALLY a rulebook.

I’m SO grateful a friend recommended this podcast. Patrik and Paul deliver consistently hilarious and spot on commentary. I love hearing all of their takes, which are way more nuanced and interesting than any other podcast I listen to. I became a member of their Patreon and have LOVED digging into their library during covid, especially the June 2019 ep “Not Really Rank, a FAScinating deep dive into the history of housewives/socialite-related reality TV, WOW.
