USEFUL Actor Advice and Tips!

This is my favorite acting podcast. It is practical knowledge that you can apply whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced actor. While I was making the transition from theatre to on-camera work I found this podcast incredibly useful. Leigh has excellent guests on the show and asks the questions I would want to ask them myself. There are episodes I return to again and again. Grateful to Leigh for all I have learned from this, simply by listening—it’s certainly had a positive impact on my career!

Must-listen for any actor

This podcast covers a range of topics from auditioning to being on set to the business of the business, and every episode has bits of gold. I learn something every time I listen (which is frequently) and I’m so grateful to have this as a resource. I think any actor, whether they’re just starting their career or an old pro, has something to gain. Leigh’s conversational tone, thoughtful questions, and expert guest make this podcast an essential listen.

Great resource for actors

This podcast covers so much about acting that it’s to your advantage to have a listen. I’ve taken notes and gotten insights to not only the business and auditioning side of acting but also the art of it. Wonderful podcast with lessons for the actor that truly wants to learn.

Why did it take me so long?

I’ve been listening to this podcast for about 2 years. I learn something new in every episode. I’ve read about 90 percent of the books recommended. I will continue to listen for as long as you keep posting. “This podcast is such a gem!!!” (I’m 100 percent Team Foster!!!) keep up the great work.

So Inspiring & Filled w/ Insider industry Knowledge

If anyone is acting, thinking about acting, or interested in how the industry works - I would 10/10 recommend this podcast every time. The most inspiring thing for me, is how he and a handful of others he interviews started off in the Midwest and were able to achieve careers and make a living. Typically if you’re from the Midwest, people are quick to shoot down your dreams. Leigh and his guests are so uplifting in their advice that it gives you hope, and motivates you. I picked this podcast up and couldn’t put it down. I found myself meticulously taking notes. I just submitted 3 video auditions for local projects that I never would have had the confidence to do if I hadn’t started listening to this. This podcast is seriously a diamond in the rough.

One of the best acting podcasts

I’ve been listening to this podcast for several months now and love it. There are many podcasts geared toward actors now, but this one gives specific, valuable acting advice from AMAZING experts rather than just sharing the journey of well known actors, coaches (which is also helpful). I’ve listened to the Larry Moss episodes (and others) multiple times. Highly recommend.

Loads of time saved with a selfless act

I know you have mentioned multiple times that you started the podcast for selfish reasons, but I think this podcast leans more towards the selfless. You have saved myself and others, who are willing to put in the work, LOADS of time and guesswork. I look forward to listening to you whenever I have those moments when I can focus. I start class today and I’m psyched. I’m also super-stoked on adding more classes to my schedule to absorb everything that I can, be hands-on, and l to fuel the passion within to make this work. Your podcast far surpasses any others that I started listening to on the subject and I have no other desire than to be able to pay it forward when those opportunities arise. I hope to meet or talk to you soon. Keep up the good work, Leigh.-Jordan Getty

Something wrong with the podcast

Hey man there’s something up with this podcast, it won’t let me download any episodes and it rarely lets me play them, this is after it was working perfectly for a while. Great podcast, it’s just so frustrating when I go to play an episode and it times out saying it’s not available over and over again.

Best No Bull**** Podcast in Acting

Leigh brings insightful, personal experience to the tumultuous world of acting, and collaborates with a hive-mind of guest artists who continue to navigate the acting profession. This shared experience eases my mind, and opens me up to the human experience. I’ve learned some valuable skills in mediation for actors from Holly Allen, and advice from legendary acting coach, Larry Moss.Your podcast continues to answer many questions I have struggled with in silence throughout the last decade, and each episode is just as invaluable as the next. Thank you for sharing your time, Leigh.
