Actress Gina Fricchione

As a parent with a daughter looking at a possible career choice in the entertainment business I found Ms Fricchione’s podcast very informative and helpful, we are a strong Christian family and feel that JP Catholic is the type of education and environment we’re looking for. Thank you.

Enjoying it so far!

I feel like your interest in the episodes may vary just depending what kind of field/hobbies you’re into. But so far I’ve enjoyed the variety of different stories. The show follows a pretty standard Q&A format, learning about how the person got started in their industry and including some kind of advice to pursue that field, along with other stories and topics along the way.

My favorite homophobic podcast!

After years and years of liberal media input on creativity in the industry we can finally have a traditional podcast that focuses on the close mindedness we should have when it comes to this! I’m so glad that a university where Game of Thrones is banned on campus and women wearing leggings is illegal finally chimes in on these discussions!
