Audrey remains cutting edge and helpful amidst the current chaos of Hollywood

I’ve listened to Audrey’s podcast for about 3 years now. When I first started listening I was a brand new actor who’d just arrived in Los Angeles and I found her guidance invaluable as I navigated classes, auditions (or rather, self tapes!), securing reps, working on set, paychecks, compiling competitive materials, etc. I 100% believe I would not have a budding acting career without this podcast. I have absolutely no freaking IDEA how non-nepobaby actors before the age of Audrey figured out this crazy industry, but I’m so thankful I don’t have to be one of them!
Overall, what I love most about Audrey’s podcast is she doesn’t sugarcoat things or talk to “me” like I’m fragile - she tells it like it is, cutting through all the noise, because she genuinely seems to love actors. Also, I have found her pod remains cutting edge, even amidst this crazy tumultuous era for the entire industry. It seems like so many “thought leaders” out there continue to talk about the industry of yesterday, because it’s the industry they know and understand. Not Audrey. Audrey explores the industry of today and does her absolute best to share what she’s learning along the way in a clear and concise format, often with guests we’d otherwise have zero access to ourselves. I’ve yet to walk away from a single episode without a fresh, new takeaway, and for that reason I will be a lifetime listener, as long as I manage to survive this industry… Thank you, Audrey!

The Best Practical Real-Time Acting Career Advice

In my 1.5 years since moving to Los Angeles, Audrey’s podcast has been my top resource for understanding, navigating, and creating a strategy for my acting career. My top peice of advice for any new actor starting out, or for seasoned actors is to listen to Audrey’s podcast. She is extremely detailed, methodical, and data-driven when it comes to her acting career, and she’s a practioner. The advice she provides on how to work properly in your career has truly been invaluable for me, and she’s an excellent host and interviewer to all the incredible guests who come on the show! She’s also a leader in the actor community and has been on the picketing front lines during this strike. Lastly she is truly a role model for me in how I approach my career as an actor! Cannot recommend this podcast enough!!
