Being an Irrelevant Actor - with everyone! (2-year anniversary special)

March 7, 2021
Today marks the 2-year anniversary of our first ever episode 💜
 
It's been a wild ride. Podcasting is no joke, it's hard work and there have been times I have had my head buried in the stats, concerned it's not working out, feeling overwhelmed, not planning properly, not believing in it enough.
 
I've learnt so much about our art, our industry and I am truly so thankful that so many incredible people sit down with me each week and talk openly about their journeys, careers, disappointments, rejections and sucesses.
 
And to everyone that listens each week, I cannot thank you enough. I hope it has offered you the same solidarity it has offered me and make's you realise that no matter your position in this industry, you are and always have been RELEVANT.
 
Your stories are relevant. Your voices are relevant Your wins, no matter how big or small, are relevant. Your losses are seen, heard, supported and are relevant. No matter how often you feel like The Irrelevant Actor, I'm here to show you YOU ARE RELEVANT.
