Great podcast for creatives

Fun and easy listen for those folks interested in the creative process.


I LOVE Jesse!!! The pod is super loose and fun, but never strays far from the topic. I love a less than privileged, come up story from people in Hollywood that have found success! The stories truly inspire my grind.

I just started listening and I already love the episode with Adam Shapiro. I also loved hearing about how he worked as an assistant to understand the business. Every gem offers more insight. Jesse asks good questions, has a great voice, and is enjoyable to listen to but is NOT white man self indulgent w/ his own time. Go. Listen. Now.

Informative, inspiring and entertaining

The Subplot offers an unvarnished, but still very positive, look at careers in the entertainment business. The show’s host, Jesse Shapiro, brings humor and a great industry perspective given his broad experience. Lots of great career/life tips for young people considering a path in Hollywood (but insights that stretch into all industries).
