An actor, comedian and filmmaker himself, Steve’s own creative drive brings a level of passion, confidence and humour to the Podcast, which helps things flow in a natural and engaging manner.
A recent episode welcomed Ian Robertson to talk in-depth about the pressures of constantly coming up with new ideas.
