How many of you out there are gym goers, treadmill runners, or even yet, marathon runners like myself? I'm definitely not bragging. :)
Over the years I found it unhelpful when the music I'm listening to on the run gets really mundane and often times gets me off of my desired rhythm. It sucks. Radio talk shows and audio books are a decent solutions for that, but you don't really get anything out of it, do you? This is what I do...
First, I look at all of my webinars and classes I bought with Stage 32. Whatever peaks my interest I will convert it to an mp3 file and put it on my iPhone. This way, when I go running I can take some sound advice with me. No pun intended. Many times I'll pause it, think about what's been said and how I can apply it in my life, and then keep on playing. The run goes by faster and I come out of it a bit wiser. Not a bad way to jump start your mornings.
If you haven't gotten any webinars from Stage 32, you can check them out below. They normally range around $39-$59 a pop but they're all hosted by guest executives and industry pros that you just can't miss out on. As a free supplement (not a substitute), I highly recommend Actors Anonymous and their podcast. They have hours upon hours of interviews with Hollywood actors discussing their craft. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't already.
Update: February 22, 2016
Here's another podcast for all the filmmakers out here: Indie Film Hustle - it's run by Alex Ferrari who's been in the film industry for over 20 years and have worked on over 1000 feature films, shorts, commercials, music videos, network promos, documentaries and webisodes. If that's not impressive enough, he his personal films have been screened in 500+ film festivals around the world. His podcasts cover filmmaking and acting, so it's absolutely worth checking out regardless what your profession in the film industry is.
