Fox_zilla ,

Love this

Love how in-depth and honest the conversations are. It’s a great addition to my podcast schedule to boost my own work.

Slow Baja ,

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.

monseygirlmama ,

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.
