Fun and informative

You'd be hard-pressed to find people more committed to their show than Natalie & Wayne, and their interviews and in-the-trenches stories leave a positive effect - something actors need to hear more often.

Insightful & Entertaining Podcast

I have been a Natalie and Wayne fan since their "Four Peas in a Podcast" days. This dynamic pair gives a lot of insights into the entertainment business and I enjoy their comedic timing. The show is a great resource for those curious about finding creative work in some capacity and how to achieve their goals. What I also appreciate is that the podcast is very friendly to all listener kinds. Two thumbs up!
