What our podcast guests say…..
At last year’s Fringe, being in the relaxed and informed company of Backstage on the Fringe (and the resulting, top quality, podcast) was a real highlight of our 2016 Fringe journey. With the passion Backstage on the Fringe have for the Fringe, from grassroots to established stars, we fully expect it will be a Fringe institution in no time (hopefully, they’ll still speak to us).
I loved sharing my story about my debut show at the Edinburgh fringe with Gary in 2016. The experience was personable, and an opportunity to reflect on my work and how my journey to mediocrity came to be. In the maelstrom that is the fringe, Backstage on the Fringe brings the real story behind the artist to life. It’s a wonderful way connect with the artist and the performance in a genuine and truthful way.
