About This Show
Actor Things is an attempt to make better actors by talking about everything. The show is a response to a stunning lack of acting podcasts that actually talk about Acting. If you're looking for the best place to get headshots in Los Angeles, this ain't your podcast. If you want to hear someone who takes headshots for a living talk about their most memorable clients, this might just be the place for you.
Every show we'll have guests, conversations, and other miscellaneous shenanigans all aimed at achieving the incredibly complicated goal of making better actors. No subject is off limits and no expert is unrelated. An actor may, if they're lucky, play a whole host of characters throughout their career each of which will come from a unique, interesting, and compelling place. As such, Actor Things views the thoughts of EVERYONE as valuable to the growth of an actor and will feature a cast of characters likely way more varied than any other show you listen to.
The show is carried on http://ActorThings.com/ and is hosted by New York City Actor and Writer Joel Austin. Joel has nearly two decades of (mostly ridiculous) theatrical and cinematic acting experience under his belt and has been trained in a whole litany of disciplines and skills.
