    Ayn Gailey Part 2: Psychology, Pornology, and Honesty

    Ayn Gailey (ayngailey.com)(FB:@ayngailey)(IG:@ayngailey)(TW:@AynGailey)is an accomplished writer in multiple mediums. We discuss her process and among so many topics. This is her quote from her website and I think it sums Ayn up pretty darn well. "This is where I honor that quiet is stronger than loud; that substance will always trump status; that real leaders don't obsess over creating more followers (because they're busy creating more leaders). This is also where I share work that I create for myself and others, with some rumination and occasional lolly-gagging along the way.  Other writers, artists, and intellectuals will be invited to do the same in The Honest Q & A's.  Until our paths cross again, please make yourself at home." Ladies and Gentleman, Ayn Gailey. Enjoy!

Entertaining, Inspiring Podcast

I love Clayton's interview style. He's entertaining and inspiring on his own, but he skillfully leaves more room for the interviewee to share how they managed their success. The interview with actor Bradley James is a perfect example of this. I felt like I was in the room with them, and came away with an interesting behind-the-scenes glimpse of acting in Hollywood.

A Master of Deep Clarity and Enchanting Ease

With his friendly demeanor and his welcoming style, Clay is able to weave masterful and entertaining connections in partnership with his guests. Together, they are able to create inspirational stories out of interviews and shine a light on all aspects of the theatrical world. His conversations are thoughtful in every sense of the word. Bravo!

Incredible

This is one of the best podcasts in the business!!!! Informative conversations with underrepresented points of view. Plus the host has a calming voice and is very entertaining.
