Actors are getting into gear with Fall classes just beginning at the Terry Knickerbocker Studio!

Here are some studio picks that will ignite, inspire, and educate any actor.

On Being – with Krista Tippett

On Being explores the questions at the center of human life – What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? This week’s episode features Mirabai Bush who brought Buddhism to the West from India in the 1970s and began Google’s “Search Inside Yourself” program for employees. Listen here.

Start Up –  by Gimlet Media

The successful actor must also be an entrepreneur in the entertainment industry. This podcast talks about what it’s like to start a business – with the latest season focusing on a wide variety of companies founded by entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Listen here.

The Tim Ferriss Show – with Tim Ferriss

This is another business focused podcast, but one that analyzes the routines and practices of successful performers. Past guests include Jon Favreau, Jamie Foxx, Edward Norton, and Maria Popova. Listen here. 

WTF – with Marc Maron

Marc offers comedy with thought provoking conversation in the WTF podcast. With guests ranging from John C. Reilly to the President himself, each episode will entertain and inspire your morning commute to acting class! Listen here.

The Heart – with Kaitlin Prest

Food for all artists and people – this is an empowered and intelligent podcast about humanity and intimacy. If you appreciate good storytelling; this is your podcast! Listen here.

The One You Feed – with Eric Zimmer and Chris Forbes.

Less a podcast specifically for artists and more a podcast for living a full life – the producers have been friends for over 20 years and write and record all the music on the show themselves. Among the topics explored are holistic living, mental health, and meditation. Listen here.
