I’m Michael Rosenbaum, I’ve spent the better part of the last two decades in and out of film and television - mostly known for playing the bald dude on the show Smallville. I’m the guy that you probably don’t know by name, but when you see my face you might say “oh, that guy from that thing.” I’ve befriended some of the most talented people in the business, but it wasn’t until I started inviting them into my home that I realized, I didn’t really know these people. What started as me having some fun, quickly evolved into something I’ve fallen in love with. What I’ve discovered is that all these people aren’t that different from you and me. They have the same insecurities and flaws that we all deal with every day. In a dark, yet enlightening way... I find a lot of comfort in that. I invite you all to join me while I get inside each of these fascinating people.

My go-to podcast

Inside of You is my favourite podcast and the first podcast I look for in my Apple Podcasts App.

Michael has a very unique way of storytelling with his guests on the podcast. We not only learn about the guest and have great banter, but Michael really digs deep with his guests in a very fun but interesting way.

Meeting Michael

I met Michael at a Comic Con in London. He signed a Flash mask for me at the time. He wasn’t doing any photos at the desk at the time. I did tell him that I was from Dublin. We got talking about him going to Dublin for another Comic Con event.
When I was going up to his desk at the Dublin event, he recognised me straight away. I got some photos with on that day. We talked also about this podcast. I’ve been listening to the show since I met him. He’s a really cool guy.

Great podcast worth every second of listening

I met Michael at Dublin comic con back in 2018 and he was just launching this podcast and was telling me about it and asked me to make an Irish promise to listen and review it.

Unfortunately I didnt have the time to do so until now so ive spent the last couple of weeks ploughing through the episodes and my god I am soooo sorry I missed out all this time this podcast is great and learning that everyone has mental health problems and they arent afraid to share it. It comforts me to know that no matter who you are famous or not that the issue is real and helps me understand my own issues and that im not alone.

Michael talks alot about his family issues and thats a real eye opener for me as thats how it feels with my family and that im the black sheep.

This podcast really helps you think about your own mental health and he mentions the ways he tries to help his mental health which is great as it gives me suggestions to try to help my own.

Listening to the guests talk about their career and the behind the scene stuff is amazing and alot of fun. The podcast isnt your typical interview podcast its just friends sitting down talking about life and the stuff they have been up to which is really relaxing and refreshing.

I may get alot of flak for this but to me.... THIS IS BETTER THAN JOE ROGANS PODCAST!!!

Anyways thats my take on this podcast its worth a listen and you wont be disappointed. Sorry Micchael it took me so long to review this but I did keep my Irish promise :)
