Review for podcast

This podcast is a must listen for any person whether starting out or a seasoned vet in the industry for actors. Actors will get a look behind the curtain and get insider tips on how they can level up their self tapes, auditions, characters, script readings and more. Jeff engages with his audience and allows actors participate and receive feedback first hand. This is a tough industry but this podcast gives you a path to get closer to your goal.

Jeffrey is amazing and this podcast is SO helpful

Jeffrey’s perspective, wisdom, positivity, kindness and encouragement are all what make this podcast such a unique and wonderful tool for actors. He addresses just about everything we need to hear in this incredibly tough business. I always feel so encouraged after listening. I’m forever grateful to him for taking the time to share all his insights and thoughts and words of wisdom in such an honest and supportive way. Also, definitely check out his classes at Actors Connection- I learned so much!!
