Intriguing and informative!

This is such a great podcast for future NTPA cast members and families, and other aspiring actors! I especially enjoyed the questions the interviewer, Reichen, asked as well as the guests he interviewed. The editing and music really complimented the show! Extremely informative and intriguing! I can’t wait to listen to their next episode!

Ace Up Your Sleeve

Well put together. It was my impression the target audience was the young person aspiring to go into a career in theater, but as a casual fan of anything theater it was enjoyable to listen too, great content, provided takeaways and a path to pursue a career, well edited and flowed well. When I found out how old the creator was for this pod cast I was even more impressed. Keep up the great work. I look forward to your next episode. 5 Star review

Mike Mazur Interview

I am so impressed with the interview of Mike Mazur. The questions Reichen asked were very impressive and well thought out. His questioning technique was very professional. He also interjected some humor occasionally which made it feel relaxed and comfortable! Latham was amazing in the editing process and created a good flow throughout the interview! I am excited and looking forward to the next interview!
