Fresh take on Animation podcasts
This podcast is great! I like that they have people to speak to their specific field/experience so that its not just the same motivational speech over and over again. It has great variety and I can't wait to hear who they bring on next!
Finally, a podcast worth listening to
In a world, where mindless banter and useless information clogs our podcasts; comes the vision of one man to capture the hearts of everyone. Seriously though, well informed podcast with an insiders look into the world of animation, and much more. It gives the listener insight on how to be successful in any situation, regardless of what industry you work in.
I really enjoy this podcast. Great to hear insights on all the aspects of the industry. Also great to hear that the guests are friends with the host. It makes the conversation seem more genuine and the answers to questions more candid. Overall, great show.
