Fun Chat with my Girl, Mandy

I had a blast chatting with Maddison on her podcast! When she asked me to be a part of the series, I said HECK YES. The podcast is also a great listen too, it truly feels like you’re sitting at a table, catching up with old and new friends at your local cafe. I think this series is a great source for ALL creatives, whether in front or behind the camera, to get advice or to find the latest new TV show or film to watch. Don’t miss this!
