Just What I Needed

I’ve always loved FilmRiot, but I’ve often been too distracted by the awesome visuals to watch and edit at the same time. With this amazing podcast, I can edit my projects with the podcast in the background. Amazing topics, amazing guests, and amazing tips! All around amazing podcast!
