highly recommend this podcast
really enjoy this podcast. Tommy is an incredibly talented actor, and the information he shares comes from years of experience in the business. I love that the information is valuable and applicable to a wide (experience) range of listeners - from all aspects of the industry. One of my favorite episodes is 006 "Letter to Mom'. Great reminder of how our (actor's) life experiences inform our work, and it reminds us to purposefully take time to live our lives fully. Such a beautifully moving podcast.
