I’m an actor. I can attest that the experiences they talk about on the podcast for the most part are universal experiences of actors globally. If you want an honest glimpse into the world of thespians who aren’t la creme de la creme listen to this.

Really beautiful refreshing honest conversations. If you’re in the business, this is a must listen and fun! If you’re not, it’s gorgeously entertaining and insightful

These two girls have kept me company 24/7 in the last weeks. I wish I was friends with them! I’ve never enjoyed a podcast so much, and the incredible thing is that I’m learning a lot about the industry - wish they explained these things in drama schools. It’s a must for all creatives, especially...Read full review »

So much of the acting industry runs on the myth of what a “successful” actor should look like. Because of that myth, I felt like I was a failure as an actor for not being on TV yet. This podcast gets into the glorious hard graft of what it actually looks like for the 98% of us who have day jobs...Read full review »

Finding this podcast through Twitter was the best thing and it came at the perfect time too. Thank you so much guys for your refreshing honesty, suddenly things feel a lot better. If you haven’t listened yet and are in the industry: YOU MUST!

This is the first actors podcast I’ve listened to that fully reflects this industry. It’s informative and entertaining which I binged within a week.

Girls! I came across this because I was planning on creating a very very similar podcast when my flatmate told me you had already beat me to it 😂 and I cannot lie you have had me in stitches all day. Just perfection, I've been in the industry 10 years now and this is like listening to all the...Read full review »

Thank you Alexa Morden and Katie-Elin Salt. We need more people like you in the industry. The perfect tonic in this mad profession.

The guest these guys get, and the conversations they have with their guests are very insightful. I’m grateful to have access to such a good resource. I want to hide this following bit a little, as I don’t want it to detract from an otherwise wonderful podcast show. The audio quality is a bit of...Read full review »

The best podcast to listen to if you’re an actor. It’s so wonderful to hear all of the stories and go “oh my god. I was there too. I’m still there! We are all in this together.” I’ve never related to anything more in my life.
JasonHardwick via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/13/19
Get a real insight from two amazing actors with an sublime sense of humour and incredible stories to tell. Great guests are interviewed as well. Two seasons so far I can wait for the next. They are 100% to me.
d4roca via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/22/19
I’ve been listening to this podcast since the very beginning and it’s such a breathe of fresh (British) air to the actor podcast world. There are so many fantastic podcasts directed at actors and acting out there, but what was lacking was a very British version of all these American, LA-centric...Read full review »

I’m graduating drama school in two months and I could not have found this podcast at a better time.

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...Read full review »

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...Read full review »

Witty, insightful and painfully honest Essential listening for anyone who had ever learnt some words and said them out loud in front of people.
Heavy-B via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/23/19
The 98% is hilarious, insightful and makes my day every time a new episode comes out. The most relatable and empowering thing I put in my ears. I’m proud to be in the 98% with you! Thanks for creating something that’s bought such joy to my commute to both muggle life and #actorslife
smarj93 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/27/18

I loved every minute of this show. I’m not an actor but I still found a lot I could relate to in Katie and Alexa’s painfully truthful depiction of the realities of #actorslife covering a great range of important topics - plus loved the jingles and out takes!
NonActor via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/28/18
So happy I found this podcast, I’m a graduating actor and this is just SO relatable and makes me feel much better about the stupid things I have already done in this industry of which I’m sure there will be plenty more.. hahaha. 🙈 Thanks gals 👯‍♀️
Amelia May L via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/10/18
I can not recommend this podcast enough to people. Alexa and Katie are brilliant and it is so refreshing to listen to. If you are not listening then you are missing out!

What a fantastic podcast.

One of my favourite podcasts to listen to.

I’ve only just discovered this podcast but I’ve binged nearly ten episodes in a day and a half!

Katie and Alexa vocalise the not often talked about life of most actors working (or not at the moment) in the profession. They have given levity and humour to some of the darkest corners of my personal experiences as an actor. Tuning in to an episode I feel empowered rather than drained- what...Read full review »

I listen to a lot of "real" actors podcasts, where celebrities bemoan the 3months they spent without work that one time. This podcast is the real deal.

This podcast is so brilliant. I really look forward to listening because (a) they’re both so lovely and fun and I feel like I’m hanging out with my mates and (b) they’re honest. AND it’s a podcast that speaks to the majority (98%) of actors instead of interviews with the famous ones, which are...Read full review »

I feel as if Katie and Alexa are my spirit guides! All the things I’ve been saying for years about the industry have all been confirmed and it’s nice to feel like you’re not alone. They make ‘it’ not seem so bad and make me proud to call myself an actor.
