Brilliant!

I have been listening since the beginning and it’s just wonderful. Truthful, heartening, hilarious - a hug received through your headphones.

Fantasticsh

Love the format, the honesty and the mix of actors. But above all it’s Harden’s energy that fuels this wonderful podcast. A very helpful aid for an actor encountering all the challenges an actor tends to encounter (me).

What it says on the tin. If you are at all a part of the acting industry, why aren’t you listening already... Go! Stop reading this! Go now! Listen.
