Great actors podcast and an inspiration

Ryan is an amazing actor I had the pleasure to work with once plus he’s a funny and wonderful human being. The actors and peeps in the industry he brings on here is outstanding. I love this kind of podcast. Lots of wonderful insights and the journey of working actors!

Insightful and Enjoyable

I’ve just started listening to An Actor Despairs and, in spite of the rather dark title, the show really provides a lot of interesting information related to the Acting Industry. Honestly, Antony Starr (Homelander from ‘The Boys’ and Lucas Hood from ‘Banshee’) recommends it and that’s all you should need to know! Check it out!!
