The Come Up


Hosted by Matt Rodin, The Come Up holds space for honest conversations about the reality of being a growing artist in the entertainment industry today.

This podcast will serve as an archive of individual perspectives and a source of inspiration for anyone navigating their own creative path. It’s an opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been, where we’re at, and where we’re going.
