Holy Smoke! A virtual fountain of valuable information!

Wow. I'm hooked on these podcasts. With Joke & Biagio I finally feel like I have companions AND a path to follow. I'm consuming the information and can't wait to take the action steps that will lead me to, if nothing else, a personal (and hopefully professional) odyssey into the world of unscripted television. I can't tell you the sense of peace I already feel. Thank you so much!

Priceless Information Presented by a Generous Duo

I've had a show idea for quite some time and had only vague idea of what steps to take. This podcast is gold! I'm immersing myself, my pitch is getting better and better, and I'm psyched.
