Existential-... Triumph?

Listening to over 200 episodes over the course of several months, I finally caught up to current events and WOW. Matt and Oren discussing their triumphs and misery so open and honestly, along with their incredibly insightful and sincere guests, makes for an entertaining and supremely educational show that I am so incredibly happy to have found.

I’ve saved a handful of quotes to later be put on T-shirts, but I shall end this review with these 2:

“If you stick it out, your odds are better than 1 in 50” (Oren) and “Steven Spielberg was never a shark.” (Matt)

Glen Montgomery ,

Every episode has golden nuggets

As an editor I first started with the editor interviews, but as I expanded to the other crafts being explored I discovered there are immensely insightful moments in every single episode. An invaluable tool to navigating this industry.
