“I’m constantly amazed at how much thought and care Mark puts into his show. I still remember the first time he interviewed Julie and I. I thought ‘holy cow, here’s somebody who really cares’. I had never been interviewed with such attention to detail and with such a thoughtful approach. We probably didn’t deserve that much respect back then, but you worked so hard and it really made my art feel validated before anyone ever thought I was any good. And to see how much care and thought you put into this list, it’s just amazing. You never slack off! You always care and you’re a true inspiration and somebody I genuinely look up to as a model of what a great human being is. Whew I just had to get that off my chest. Thank You Mark Manning!” – Andrew Morris
