A great Podcast to learn from

I've been listening to this podcast for a few months now. Ariel knows what he is talking about and does a great job interviewing guests. His positivity makes it easy to listen to. I always look forward to the next episode. It is both inspiring and thought provoking. Please keep up the great work!

Compelling and encouraging

This podcast is full of great nuggets of knowledge. It’s also really cool to hear how some of my favorite filmmakers struggle with similar mental barriers, and how they push past them. This has very quickly become one of my favorite podcasts!
