extremely insightful + inspiring

I’ve known about SOM for awhile from
their tutorials, but I don’t typically listen to a lot of career-oriented podcasts because they’re often very out of touch or just very obviously PR fluff. This is the opposite—very honest, very candid, and the few episodes I’ve listened to have had very humble and open guests.

It seems like every time Joey and his team put together another show, they’ve read the minds of every freelancer and small studio owner out there. Always timely, informative and motivating — My favorite podcast.
