Toons and Recs with Nicole Matarese

Ep. 111

Paula Blair speaks to California-based actor, writer, producer and podcaster Nicole Matarese. We talk about her indie podcasting on Totally Toonular and Totally Recommend This, Dude, landing parts in independent features and short films, and her other writing and producing roles in theatre and film production. We also get excited about our favourite animated series and note the importance of supporting and background actors. This was a really fun conversation with Nicole. If you enjoy it too, please give it a good rating and share it with a friend!
