I love listening to these podcast. To be able to hear my favorite actors talk about their own life experiences is truly a gift. I have learned so much from listening to this. I just feel like we are not hearing the entirety of the interview. Don’t get me wrong I love the editing between questions with clips of the actors work and commentary from Eric Connor, I’m just afraid that there is information that we are missing. Other then that I love listening to Backlot and I can’t wait for more interviews.
Love the behind-the-scenes look at the careers of industry insiders!
