Inspires me to listen to Cranston’s Memoir!

This interview gave insight to Cranston’s thoughts about the importance of reading and audiobooks, gave some thoughts about Breaking Bad, as well as touched on his Memoir which I’m now very interested in listening to on Audible as it was not only written by Cranston but also narrated by him as well!
I am glad I listened to this interview.

Interesting Quick Listen

This was a great interview with Bryan Cranston. I loved the show "Breaking Bad." However, I was probably like a lot of people who had to remove themselves from it as it was too real at points especially the death of one of the actors by overdose. I have had many family members and friends who have passed away and this part became too real for me. Bryan addresses this scene in this interview and it really made me feel better about the scene because of his reaction to it. It was a very real scene to make and everyone had a hard time with producing it. It's interesting to hear about him and his family and his acting career as well as his book. After this interview I would love to listen to his book.

very short

This is a very short interview. I can't say I thought much of the interviewer, but fortunately Brian Cranston could carry anyone. I enjoyed his memoir and his narration. Bryan Cranston is insightful, modest, and an overall class act.

Is it time to watch Breaking Bad?

I had downloaded quite a few of these audible interviews ( I’ll be honest it was in an attempt to qualify for badges 😂) decided to listen to some and I am pleasantly surprised. I’d never watched any Breaking Bad however I’m now considering it. Bryan’s interview was interesting and relaxed. I’ve even added his book onto my wish list

insightful, human, honest

Cranston always strikes me as honest and very candid about his own work and life. This short introduction to his memoir makes the reader eager to pick up the book - or to get the audiobook.

Not the best interviewer

Not the best interviewer. Audible requires the additional words as a somewhat silly purile policy.

I didn't even know who Bryan Cranston was when I first started reading this book. Wow, what a talented fella.
