Is it just me or is time flying by? How do we make the most out of our short time here on Earth? That’s what we’re here to find out. I’m Justin Long and I’ve been an actor for most of my life, so I’m used to getting inside the heads of the characters I play. But now that I’m getting older (I’m 43 now, yikes), I want to peek inside the heads of real people to learn how they find meaning in life. I’m also very curious what their favorite snack food is, and what emoji they use most often — ya know, the REALLY important stuff. Every episode I’ll get personal with all kinds of people, from actors to musicians to deep thinkers who fascinate me. My brother Christian is on hand each episode to keep me honest, and occasionally remind me about some of the embarrassing things I’ve done over the years. Join us, or if you have more important things to do, that’s okay too — life is short!

This Is Not A Review

Hi, Justin! I want you to know that I’m a 22-year-old human being who, in fact, has seen ED.

Admittedly, I’m not proud of HOW I was able to view the show because it’s, in a way, illegal. None of the actors, the creators, nor the crew gain profit from it.

[Clue: Most episodes were actually uploaded on a mainstream app with a logo that is color red]

Someone must have loved the show very much that he/she managed to record the entire thing. That person is a genius, Justin. He/She muted the parts of every episode where there’s music playing in the background to avoid “the app” from taking down his/her uploads. Though, the network can hunt him/her for it.

Still, I was lucky enough to have watched that unique show. Not that I’ve already seen many, but in my opinion, ED surpasses all shows with the “Will They/Won’t They” trope.

I surely hope ED will soon be available in any streaming services because it truly deserves to be seen by many, and all of the people behind the hardwork must be recognized and PAID.

I love the fact that Julie was Carol before she became known as Claire, and Tom was Ed before he landed his role in The Flash. The feeling of seeing these people before they’ve established great prominence... it’s something. And ED is a manifestation that these people are growing.

I’ve also watched individual interviews of Tom and Julie, as that’s what I tend to do after geeking out over a show, and I think those two are angels walking on Earth. You and Christian are equally as good people as they are, by the way.

More power to you and this podcast!!!

So much love for this podcast!

Hi, Justin and Christian! Thank you for this podcast! I love it so much! I learn so much about your guests, who are all very interesting. Also, I love how hilarious you, two, are when you’re giving your “so, that happened” thoughts. My favorite episode is the one with the beautiful, talented, and super witty and funny Olivia Wilde. 🤤 I love her so much! Thanks for having her. ❤️
