Love this show!

I am an engineer and only involved in local community theatre. I am a theatre nerd though, and am loving vicariously through this podcast. Thanks Maggie!

Dancing Line Reviewer ,

5-Star Podcast

This is an amazing podcast!! Very well organized podcast to help actors understand how to get into the business of acting! I love the guests the come in the show and I appreciate the inside scoop given by the host Maggie Bera who is an actual actress and went to college as well. Useful tips about auditioning, getting an agent, even how to live in the city. Definitely will recommend to my drama friends who are serious about becoming actors.

Amazing Interview and advice!

A must listen to for any prospective college applicant and parent. Definitely added a “human” perspective to a super stressful process. Thank you!
