Such a great find! Informative and goes deep on the topic

This is such an informative and in depth podcast, every episode has career advice, animation tips, and interesting stories from guests that range from well known to up and coming. It’s fun hearing about the backgrounds of people that are making it in this industry and how they got there. Terry is great at going deep into the subject and he helps to steer the conversations to interesting places. Glad I found this one!

Loving it

I absolutely love the conversations on the show, always a fun listen. I also enjoy hearing all these amazing stories of how the guests got into animation. The interviews are just so natural and real.

lilotik ,

Valuable resource for anyone looking to get into animation

I’ve only listened to a few episodes so far, but Ive adored every episode so far. Lots of colorful people who really care about animation. The host is also a great interviewer with super specific questions that always prompt insightful answers. The stop-motion episodes are my favorites, especially since that’s the corner of the industry I’m trying to wedge into.
