Joe Hardesty has sky rocketed from PA picking up gear at Oren's apartment to the Producer of shows like Dead to Me, American Vandal and No Activity. How did he do it? It definitely has something to do with working with Matt.    Unpaid Endorsements:   Joe - Starbucks Reserve   Matt - Netflix show "The Circle"         - "The Marriage Story" score is a great orchestral soundtrack to write to   Oren - "My 600lb Life"           - When sending someone notes on their work, start off with what you liked and then gently                 go on with what they should change.

New to the podcast. I've only listened to episode 4 so far because the previous episodes are unavailable on castbox. I would love to get a hold of episode 1-3 somehow. Please keep doing what you guys are doing. Different perspectives is what keeps this world moving.
