Kinguhling ,

Good production

Glad to see a podcast that focuses on the artists and different industries that ZBrush is used in. Good to listen to during the morning commute

A good listen while you sculpt

Interesting to hear giants in the industry telling their origin stories. I'm eager to hear more. The informative podcast was light, funny, and easy to listen to while I sculpted in zBrush. Good stuff. Good sound quality too. Keep em coming.
