    6.4- MRK Management's Matthew Kaufmann: Behind the scenes of manager life and what actors need to know about it.

    Matthew Kaufmann opens up about the real life of an up and coming manager in LA. From his random (kismet?) meetings with reps her started working for, to his side jobs that got him here, to the ups and downs on his side of the table (hey actors...does this sound familiar?!) he doesn't hold back. Matthew tells us all about how and what he looks for in clients and how to have a true long lasting career with your reps. We also hit on workshops (hint: not his fav) and how he is helping others in the time of Covid.

    6.3- VO Agent Jazmin Rangel: How to get, keep, and book voice over reps and work.

    My long time voice over agent (and fellow dog rescuer) Jazmin Rangel joins the podcast today to talk VO. Since it is still chugging along on that end of the business, we chat all about demos, how to treat reps, how to take your VO seriously (and they know when you don't), and where to even start. 

    I will share my audio equipment via a full Amazon link in my IG this week! 

    This episode was recorded via Zoom, thank you in advance for understanding our tech difficulties in this time!

    6.1- Jenna Doolittle: Actor & Quarantine Email Queen

    Let's put this free time in to use. We don't have a "big epic plan" this season, but we do have a lot of amazing humans with the time to chat. And we sure do have a lot to chat about. This season we're going to cover the standards: day to day life in and around the business, what you know and want to share, how you got to where you are. But we're also going to talk a lot about what we're doing now and to prepare for the future of whatever this Covid-19 world throws at us. LOVE YOU ALL (please review this podcast).

    Jenna Doolittle is not only a hard working actress with a heart of gold (check her IMDB credits to see how often that sweet woman plays a nurse) but she is also the one and only person currently behind the Actor Quarantine Newsletter. Let's hear from the QT Queen herself on how she is got to this point in her career, how she is currently fueling her days, and why it's ok to not do everything...even when we have the time to do so. 

    Sign up for the Newsletter here.

If you’re not listening you’re missing out!!

As a former guest this may seem biased, BUT I can say without a doubt that Sam creates the perfect environment for her guests to GET REAL and dish the honest advice actors are aching to hear. And they don’t settle for fluff, it’s actionable, real life stuff... basically what I’m trying to say is: when you listen you’ll learn (and laugh!) and it will not be a waste of time. So subscribe now and start your education. Grad school for professional actors! Beyond that Sam has a huge heart and is one of the most generous people in the business.

A Hug Through my Headphones

This podcast has truly made me feel like I’m not alone. The raw and real stories that Sam tells, and allows her guests to tell, just really make me breathe a sigh of relief and also remind me of why I do this crazy thing!! So thanks for the hug and the reminder, Sam. Keep going.

Amazing, REAL, Educational

I have been listening to One Broke Actress for a few months now and I have learned so much and feel lighter and like I am apart of a community.
I feel so lazy for not writing a review sooner!- Lol sorry Sam. You deserve all the best reviews and 5 stars. I can’t wait for you next one! 💕
