It’ll be a rare but honest behind-the-scenes look into the life of a talented artist sharing experiences and thoughts from the heart on what it really means to “make it” in this business.

Why I’ll Never Make It podcast was created in 2017 to explore the reasons actors and creative professionals don’t succeed and foster honest conversations of the day-to-day struggles in the entertainment industry. Interviews range from such notables as *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone and Caitlin Kinnunen from Broadway’s The Prom to everyday actors, composers, directors, and teachers. They all share a common theme of how hard this business can be, yet each of them share their passion for the arts and what keeps them going through all the ups and downs. As the old song goes, “There’s no people like show people, they smile when they are low.” Listeners will certainly find laughter and inspiration from the stories and experiences shared on this podcast.
