Bri has done such a terrific job picking the guests for this show and all of the interviews are fun and informative. I hope we get a season 2!!
Working to develop a new web series and every episode of this podcast contains such great information that has helped me feel more confident in moving forward.
LOVE forget the box
This podcast is filled with great information not only about planning and making a webseries - but also has such great information about finding and connecting with your audience. Who cares if you have a great webseries if you don't have an audience. READY FOR SEASON 2!
