Favorite new theater podcast

Clayton is an outstanding interviewer and I love his fascinating chats with the best of the best in the theater and entertainment worlds.

Brings out the best from his guests

Clayton Howe is an incredibly generous interviewer. His love for the entertainment industry is obvious and he shows genuine curiosity about his guests. But here's the kicker-rather than having them list their resume, his questions are designed to get to the root of their values. What drives them. How they use their art to heal the world. And, most importantly, the support system that got them where they are today. I was so honored to be a guest on the podcast and now I've gone back to savor all the episodes, which are packed with colleagues I love and respect. Clayton is a smart man with a gorgeous soul.

Uplifting, insightful, funny

Clayton is a dynamic host who first and foremost makes the episodes about the guest. Plenty of insightful stories to be told and useful knowledge about theatre and life.
