Amazing!

Very informative and fascinating podcast. The humor sprinkled throughout this episode kept me hooked the whole time. The chemistry from the hosts was also recognizable from the beginning of the episode. I’m definitely looking toward to hearing more from these two.

Interesting and Informative

In the News today, there’s so much information that can be hard to interpret and understand. “What Actually Is” helps to break down and simplify that info and incorporate it into a easy-going conversation. I feel smarter after listening to their podcast!

Can’t Wait for More!!

These guys sound like total naturals. The topics are very relevant and interesting and there is the perfect amount of facts vs opinions. There is also a comedic flare that keeps the listener laughing and interested- a little digression and natural banter between these two guys really make this podcast stand out amongst others out there. Will definitely keep supporting and listening every week and am excited for all the next, new topics!!
