This Is Actually Happening is a weekly, first-person storytelling podcast, hosted by Whit Missildine. The show features uncanny, extraordinary, true stories of events that have dramatically altered the lives of ordinary people told by the people who lived them, exploring the question:

This Is Actually Happening was originally an audio documentary project that grew out of The Permatemp Corporation, a design and storytelling collective founded by Whit in 2008.
In October of 2020, This is Actually Happening was acquired by the Wondery network and is now a Wondery Original podcast.
