Episode Info: Just a tiny bit over four years ago this site launched with its very first podcast episode. To be honest, we didn’t know if anyone would listen, or be interested in learning the nuts and bolts of unscripted television, documentary series, and reality TV. How It All Started Way back in 2009 we started a general filmmaking/TV producing blog at JokeAndBiagio.com. We hoped to be able to share a unique POV about the business.

We were really happy to see how many of you were using concrete, real tips from the podcast to shape your careers. And it was great to see how many of you have a much better understanding of how the industry works.
