Engaging, practical, and super helpful

I love Miranda as an actor and as a person. While I’m not a professional actor, I get a ton out of the show anyway. She gives practical advice for all creatives in an engaging, entertaining, and practical way, and her guests are also fun and terrific. Give this great show a chance. You’ll love it and learn a lot at the same time!
