Customer ReviewsSee All
This podcast is so useful to working actors...especially those of us that are attempting to consistently up our game. The information is real and ACTUALLY useful as opposed to just standard interview questions. The conversations are laid back and feel like you are relaxing around a table gabbing about what does and doesn’t work for people.
All Actors Should Listen!
Inviting all of these CD’s, actors, agents and etc. is the best thing Anthony could do for aspiring actors. The information is comforting and insightful. Love this podcast!
Learn to host
You seem awesome. But you’re the equivalent of an actor with a great personality who does zero training. You interrupt guests, cut yourself off, take over and dominate the other person’s time, and ask yes/no questions way too often. All things that could be remedied if you would just do the basic work of learning how to interview and host a podcast. This would be a great pod if you did that but, as of now, is an incredibly awkward listen.
