Love it

As someone who’s had many failures in auditioning, listening to this podcast has given me more insight into committees. It’s humanizing them and helping me realize that they may be picky but they are in their own way rooting for us as auditionees. Thank you both for your insight and I hope to come by with some good news sometime in the future.

I love your podcasts

My friend Jason Heath told me about your podcast and so I started listening to them. Right now I just finished episode 5, and I just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed them so far, and that I look forward to continue listening to them. I’ve been attending the LA Phil as subscribers, witty my wife and son, for the last six years, and we look forward to every performance. Your podcast are truly enjoyable and I appreciate not only your honesty as you present each theme, but also all the knowledge that your are so willing to share. Thank you so much
