So many inspiring podcasts out there allow us to hear all about how well-established stars got to where they are today. But those actors are so faaaaaaar away from where so many of us are today! Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in the hills?
We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.
In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.
In this installation of "Kahnversations," Ryan interviews Eyal Podell. Over the past 17 years, Eyal has worked steadily in Hollywood. His credits include more than 50 episodes on prime time television series as a series regular, recurring character, or guest star, and 150 episodes on the #1 daytime drama THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. On the feature side, he's worked with legendary actors and directors, including Al Pacino, Gene Hackman and Michael Mann. In addition to acting, Eyal has just begun gaining momentum as a writer. In 2012 his feature spec "SEUSS", co-authored with writing partner Jonathon E. Stewart, topped the Hollywood Blacklist, leading to jobs at Paramount, Pixar, STX and more. Currently, he is recurring on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS while writing a feature for Paramount Animation.
