Fantastic and insightul
We're all quite used to seeing what actors do so this is a really welcome change to get to hear such insightful commentary from guests on what goes on behind the scenes.
My favourites so far are the costume designer and the stunt coordinator. Every guest has such a passion for what they do and no matter what the topic, it is always so fascinating to listen to.
