In Episode 217, AJ sits down for the first of a great two-part chat with actor Amir Talai (American Dad!, Kung Fu Panda: The Legends of Awesomeness) to chat all about:
- Amir’s beginnings in the Bay Area
- why Amir doesn’t believe in going to college (specifically) for acting
- how your “type” can be your “way in” to the industry
- what it takes to just. Keep. Working
- and a bunch more
Also discussed: the recent conclusion of the first ever AJ-led grad school class at UCLA, and a call to action from a longtime listener to change the cultural narrative. And don’t miss out on a super badass, limited time Cyber Special offer from podcast favorite VO2GoGo.com!
