||ExplicitRA Topic Podcast #1 – Where to Start||Couple weeks ago I was thinking it might be beneficial to not only have guests on podcasts but to do separate short topic based podcasts – where I answer questions on animation or discuss animation techniques quickly.

INSPIRING I hope it continues
Thanks for starting this, really inspirational
One of my favorites
This podcast really focuses on the student to feature journey which helps keep me going. I can't wait to here more. I just wish iTunes updated on the day the new episode released on Rusty's website.
really great advice
LOVE the content, I've been looking for an animator advice podcast forever, much needed in our field, however, the audio quality is VERY poor, I wish he had a better microphone, very harsh on the ears.
