RMCAD RULES!

This podcast is so good, I love listening! I’ve spent a lot of my time at RMCAD, so I’m a little biased, but the proof is in the pudding. Robb’s voice is easy on the ears and he asks all of the right questions! Love the array of creatives that RMCAD has chosen to highlight. Great work everyone!
