Best podcast on Animation out there

As a lover of animation and learning everything about the industry and It’s history, there is no better place to learn than the Bancroft Brothers podcast. They are both incredibly experienced and they bring in amazing guests as well!

You two make me laugh!

Forget audio issues, the banter between you two makes me laugh! I learn so much about the field my daughter wants to work. I love the stories of animation, the “name dropping” of animators and studios to work for/at, and what is going on in the industry. From this podcast, APU was a college option to apply; they are offering her a near “full-ride” financial package to study animation! Sorry Tom, Nashville has horrible weather!

Long live the Bancroft Brothers!

I love animation and while I don’t have the skills to be an animator myself, I love hearing all the stories and insights you guys share on a regular basis. Thanks for a great podcast and thank you for all that you do for the art of animation!
