Writing non-stop notes

Such an important podcast. I find gems of knowledge in every episode. Just listened to Brittany S. Hall’s episode and OMG I wrote so many notes my hand started cramping up.

The BEST acting podcast - should be part of acting school curriculum

This podcast has allowed me to look forward to house chores (and anything else you can do while listening to a podcast)… while every actor’s journey is different, Alyshia has created an online community with transparency that helps us all recognise a rewarding journey is also always challenging. That being said, each episode is incredibly inspiring - it really should be taught /included in any acting school’s curriculum for all students to listen to. Thank you for making this podcast Alyshia !

A NeverEnding Masterclass in Reslience

I stumbled across this podcast while listening to the Just Shoot It podcast. I am SO glad I did. Alyshia asks all the right questions that affirms your journey as an actor. I get so motivated and inspired by listening to the stories of each of her guests. ESPECIALLY that Laurence Fishbourne episode, which can I say, was so incredibly refreshing and positive. To hear the full story of such an iconic black actor’s career was incredible to me especially as a woman of color. THANK you Alyshia for the work you have put into creating this podcast. You are a legend!
