The first BONUS episode of the Trivia with Budds Podcast features me chatting with students at Actors for Autism, a nonprofit known for Opening Doors of Opportunity and Creating Possibilities. I told them my story of getting into performing, doing standup, moving to LA, starting a trivia business, and landing a job on an MTV show and answered some of their questions about the biz at the end. I hope this episode helps you make some decisions, start some projects, or start asking questions! Email me at ryan@ryanbudds.com if you have any questions about anything you heard on this one. 

As a bonus, test yourself on 11 Beauty and the Beast questions in the show's intro, with the answers revealed at the end of the ep. See how much Disney you know!
