Hello and welcome to The Importance of Staying Earnest. The podcast where we sit down with creatives to discuss the ins and outs of making a career in the arts.

Today's episode is a discussion with Lewis Mackenzie, an actor MA student on a broadcast journalism course. He is here to talk about his experiences at drama school, what it's like once you leave, and why he enrolled on his MA course.

Lewis brings up the importance of being your own advocate and why it's so important to do your research when finding and signing with an agent, as well as providing an insight into drama schools and his experience while he was a student.

We also take a little trip down memory lane as we chat about some of the productions we did together in sixth form, simpler times!

So grab a tea or something stronger and come along as we try to find some direction in our lives...
