So much fun!

I've been a fan of character actors for years, and this is a great idea for a podcast. I'm really enjoying it!

How great is this podcast?!?!

I’m a huge fan of John Ross Bowie and his multi-faceted acting career. More than a character actor (as he refers to himself frequently on the podcast), he is a journeyman actor whose performances have elevated many of the TV shows on which he has appeared. On this podcast, he interviews fellow actors who have successful, if not flashy, careers about their path into acting and their vast range of experiences working on every kind of show. John lets his guest talk, rarely interrupting but always reminding them about key points in their careers. I hope this podcast runs for 10 years, and that for the 100th episode, someone will interview John about his career.

Love it like a love song ,

Such a fun podcast!

So far this podcast is dynamite! The guests are great and the conversation flows beautifully. It’s not your typical interview sort of show - it feels more like you get to listen in on old friends chatting. I’m so glad I found out about this!
