Meet Rosa Tran of Taste of Regret Podcast in Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rosa Tran.

Rosa, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started as a puppet coordinator on Robot Chicken season 2 and I just kept pushing forward in animation until now. I spent the last 10 or so years working in animation.

I started this podcast to help me through a sad time and it has been an incredible learning experience.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No way. There have been so many days when I felt like I would never get to make anything of my own and that one day I’ll wake up still sitting at the desk scheduling out a show. The biggest hurdle I had to overcome was conquering my inner voice. Once I stop doubting myself, things became more accomplishable.

Please tell us about Taste of Regret Podcast.
Taste of Regret is a “food” podcast. If you want to hear stories of how food connects with us emotionally… how food can comfort your soul, how food can take you back in time, and how it brings us closer together…then this is that podcast.

I say food with quotes because on the surface it is about food but when you dig deeper its a podcast about loss, about connecting with people, its about relationships.

Food tv shows, podcasts, videos, etc right now focus on the technique and how to make something but really don’t focus on the emotional aspect of it. The connection we make around a table.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Positive attitude. This job is difficult and you get beaten down BUT you have to get back up and stay positive. I think being positive is key to keeping your motivation.
