Love the free flowing conversations from different artists and entertainers. It's great to hear from such an eclectic group and keeps you wanting to know who will be featured in the next podcast. Thanks for sharing the local scene on the west coast.
Jagged Parts is a focused and informative resource highlighting different parts of the film and tv industry in Vancouver through the first-hand experience of his guests. It is incredibly enlightening and inspiring to hear how others started in their specific niche and progressed to where they are now, and it doesn’t hurt that Kunal is an engaging, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic interviewer. My favourite so far has been the episode on voice over. Highly recommended.
