Great conversation!

It’s always interesting to find out the backstory from the actors, producers, and directors. This show does just that! It was really cool to get the inside scoop on the personal lives of a couple who happened to have had a really cool documentary. They even touched on touchy topics that made the show more real and relatable.

Awesome show!

I love the local community connections that BVS creates. It’s fun and informative to listen to different people in the creatives space and hear their story.

Claim your agency!

Just learned about your podcast and started with the Jen Waldman interview which was amazing. It’s a must listen to for all people across every profession to think about how to control their mindset and their destiny.
