Absolutely LOVE this podcast!

I absolutely LOVE this podcast!! Katherine is so knowledgeable and also seems like a fantastic human being. Sometimes as an actor and creative you tend to doubt yourself and question if you’re on the right path. Katherine arms you with the tools and confidence to push those doubts aside and jump in with both feet!
