Screen Afficionados Come In

After listening to some episodes it seems like this podcast is great for those who are looking to enter the Aussie film/tv industry. Plenty of interviews with big names (Eric Bana, etc.,) but also with people who work at Screen Australia and how they got their jobs. Very niche, very cool.
