Very insightful, taps an untouched corner of the creative industry

One of my favorite industry podcasts of late. A great mix of practical insight and inspirational content. Nate has done a particularly good job of selecting interview subjects from roles that typically don’t get much of the spotlight or airtime, so it feels like the conversations cover new ground. Highly recommend for people interested in the mechanics and creative processes involved in filmmaking, advertising, and a broad range of creative careers.

Just a great content

This is the first podcast about creatives that I've found like it. There is an honesty about how all the guests became successful and their journey to success. Their approach doesn't sugar coat how difficult, but rewarding, being a creative can be.

It should not be missed

This is excellent for people just beginning their creative careers, independent contractors, studio owners, agency executives, directors, marketers, etc. Guests from across the industry, representing a truly diverse range.
