Awesome

This is a great podcast for anyone pursuing a creative career. It’s so helpful and inspiring to hear other people’s experiences with failure and their strategies for moving past them. They also talk a lot about how sometimes missing the job you *think* you want leads to the job that truly makes you happy. Great conversations and host. Give it a listen!

Favorite Podcast

I listen to a lot of podcasts and this one is my favorite. Great conversations. Great insight into the journey people took to "make it" in comedy. Check out especially if you are an aspiring comedian

Excellent

Just discovered this podcast and can't turn it off! People are so honest and open, and it's full of great advice for artists of all kinds, as well as exposing some of the nitty gritty of professional acting, writing, etc. Even though it's not necessarily the point of the podcast, I've probably learned more about the process of auditioning, writing packets, getting representation, and the business-side of show business from this podcast than any other I've found. Thanks Don!
