Gabe

This podcast rocks. As a person who was always in the theater as a kid and now reviews movies and interviews actors as an adult I find this a must listen!

JaykeComiskey ,

This podcast rocks!

Besides being educational and influential, it’s also very entertaining to listen to! The way that Tyler connects with the audience, and the person they’re interviewing is phenomenal. Even without a background in theatre, I feel like anyone could gain a little something from these podcasts.
