About Us

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!

Latest Episodes

S2E16 - Curtain Call - "WWMSD?"

ESeries 2 of The 98% comes to a close with Katie and Alexa going back to basics; a chinwag, sharing of listener write-ins and general #actorslife realness. It is all thanks to you listeners that The 98% was back for a second series. We work 4 jobs between us as well as pursuing acting, writing and filmmaking but the time we spend on the podcast is made so worthwhile by your tweets/emails/spreading of the word. We cannot emphasise how much we appreciate every interaction and new download we get. Thank you. *Please note that at time of recording we had planned a few more episodes which then unfortunately fell through. So originally this finale would have been released around November time hence our mentioning of Christmas - but it's only October so ignore us and don't think about Christmas yet!!* If the podcast has helped you in any way and you'd like to give a little back to take your support further please visit our patreon page. Every tiny bit helps and goes towards our subscription...

S2E12 - Fingers in both pies

S2E11 - #RegulateAndState

EThis is a call to arms! Alexa and Katie fervently believe more needs to be done with the regulation of casting calls on websites that are mainly used by self submitting actors. Actors desperate for work + loosely regulated casting calls = a breeding ground for exploitative behaviour, sexist language and at the least an extremely tiresome submitting experience for actors and the worst...potentially dangerous situations. Please use the hashtag #RegulateAndState on social media to call out inappropriate and questionable casting calls and push for casting websites to REGULATE the castings that are posted and STATE to offenders why their posts are inappropriate/not acceptable and that if they offend again they will not be allowed to post on the site. It is not an actors job to report casting calls and push for them to be reviewed when they shouldn't have been posted in the first place. Actors pay subscriptions to submit themselves to jobs, not vet the postings. #REGULATEANDSTATE *TW* - P...

S2E8 - "We’re not just fries on the side of a burger"

EThis weeks guest, Tom Ramsay, and Alexa and Katie have a new word; 'Sexualinity'. Sexuality and Masculinity. Two things that shouldn't have an affect on someone's journey as a performer but this industry has other ideas. In this important episode Tom inspiringly opens up about how his struggles with his sexuality didn't just end after coming out to friends and family and how the old fashioned expectations of masculinity can lead to a decline in mental health and a feeling of misplacement in an industry held up in large part by the people it doesn't let fit in. After saying goodbye to pursuing performing work Tom has been pursuing directing and other creative avenues. Since recording this episode has accepted a job asLiterary Manager for Aria/From Page To Stage! If you have a new musical you'd like to submit for consideration go to frompage2stage.com!
