    What is Your Breakout Role? (with Actor Chris Webster)

    What is Your Breakout Role? (with Actor Chris Webster)

    Whether it be music, art, writing, or in this case, acting, everyone strives for that breakout moment. Serendipitously, Austin met with English actor Chris Webster right after he might have experienced that critical moment. What followed was a conversation on fame, chasing the ephemeral, giving up, moving forward, and the ins-and-outs of the LA acting industry. Mr Webster's alluring accent doesn't hurt, either.

Wonderful brain

I first met Austin playing trivia at a bar called The Waylon in Hell’s Kitchen. Such a nice guy and then cheered him on as he dominated on Jeopardy. He was a wonderful brain. Funny and full of amazing trivia. And now interviews as well! The full package!

Austin - your podcast has been enlightening!

After seeing Austin on Jeopardy and later seeing a post from subwaycreatures on Instagram introducing me to this podcast, I began listening... & let me tell you... I have not been disappointed. Austin, thank you so much for sharing. I’ve learned so much!

A Lot to Learn

Dude? About that SCARY stalker? If she was so life threatening, why let her sit there long enough to have 3 beers?!? She could have shabby stabbed EVERYBODY at the bar in THAT amount of time.
