John's podcast : The Eyeball Podcast
Good insights into the “real world” of photographers!
Love the candor and insights into the real lives of working photographers!
Keep up the good work.
Great guests however...
...be aware that the host curses like he breathes, so this is not a podcast you’ll want to listen to with kids around. It should be labeled explicit but it isn’t. I hope he learns to control his mouth bc it doesn’t sound professional and often is at odds with the much more polished presentation of his guests’ side of the conversation.
Thanks Alex G...
