Great Podcast Start to Finish

This is a must-see podcast for anyone digging in and wanting to learn more about production and post-production workflows. Michael Kammes covers a wide variety of subjects and provides easy to understand insights into everyday challenges within the digital workspace. Give it a shot. I'd definitlely recommend doing the video podcast if you can (over audio-only) as Kammes adds a lot of helpful, useful, and often funny references to movies and tv shows. Thanks Michael! Keep them coming!
