Great podcast for creative artists

I would highly recommend this podcast to actors and creatives as the interviews are very inspiring and insightful. Great host who gets to the point and doesn’t make it about himself like other podcasts can do. Amazing guests who always feel like they’ve been put at ease by Scott.

Outstanding, serious, enlightening

Outstanding. Focused and wide-ranging interviews, excellent background research. No tedious fluff or banter (unlike so many other podcasts). Gets right to the heart of things. Superb in every way.
