    Steven Tobolowsky: Reflecting On Life

    Steven Tobolowsky: Reflecting On Life

    Stephen Tobolowsky is a master storyteller. He has been in hundreds of movies, plays on Broadway, and is constantly appearing on network television shows. However, I wanted to talk to him about his podcast, "The Tobolowsky Files," which to be fair, is more of story time narrative than traditional interview podcast.
    I cannot explain how much impact and meaning I've gotten from this show.
    We talk in particular about these two episodes. I HIGHLY recommend you listen to them all, but especially these episodes:

    https://tobolowskyfiles.com/episodes/the-tobolowsky-files-ep-22-the-dangerous-animals-club

    From his website:
    "Stephen Tobolowsky is one of the leading character actors in film today. USA Today listed Stephen as the 9th most frequently seen actor in movies; he has appeared over 200 movies and television shows."

Nice

This podcast is so nice

@JakeMillerTech ,

Great Show!

I've been listening to StartEd Up since pretty early on. It's a great show! I love the "disruptive discourse" that takes place. Don does a great job creating conversations about what's done in traditional classrooms and schools from the lens of what students will need in today's world (or in the near future). I have a hard time keeping up with all of the episodes, but that's okay - any one that you listen to packs a powerful & valuable message.

Great conversations

I enjoy the 'crucial conversations' Friday show as well as Don's quick Monday Motivation episodes. They've got great guests from not only the education space but often from the entrepreneur space as well.
