Most actor interviews share the glossy and shiny parts of being a performer with questions like, “What attracted you to this character? When did you know you wanted to be an actor? Or, ”Were you nervous to kiss your costar?” But very few dive into the nitty gritty of the business of acting.
That’s where The Actor CEO Podcast comes in. Now in its 4th season, The Actor CEO Podcast has built up a community of over 8,000 worldwide followers who tune in seeking advice from industry professionals about the business side of show business and more importantly how they can build a sustainable career as an actor.
Host Mike Moreno started the podcast over 115 episodes ago because he says, “I was seeking the insight and advice from those in the industry who were 10 or 15 steps ahead of me and that advice kept coming back to treating your career like a business. I thought it was so important and not something we as actors were taught in BFA or MFA school. I decided to share those conversations through a podcast and it’s grown from there.”
Grown it has. With industry recognition like both Backstage Magazine and Casting Networks listing it as one of the top podcasts actors should be listening to, The Actor CEO Podcast and ActorCEO.com have reached performers everywhere with the US, the UK, Canada and Australia being the biggest audience.
The website offers a wealth of resources from lists of self tape gear under $20, to discounts on classes, headshots, and more while the podcast keeps bringing in top professionals like Emmy winner Erika Cohn, author of No Acting Please Eric Morris, Tony nominee Elizabeth Davis, Austin Pendleton, filmmaker Sonja O’Hara, Felipe Valle Costa from FX’s Snowfall, Mark St. Cyr from Disney+ High School Musical The Series, casting director Andy Roth and so many more.
It’s impossible not to hear some key advice on the show for voice overs, self tapes, or building true relationships with casting directors and then find a blog article or discount on the website that makes implementing that advice quick and effective.
Unlike any other resource out there, actors have made it clear that the Actor CEO platform is a game changer for professional performers whether they “binge listen all the time” or “feel like I can take on anything after I listen,” actors are seeing what Mike has built as the “go to source for everything business related in the acting industry!”
