Therapeutic and educational

Unthinkable is like having a therapist while learning how to be the best version of you. I love the content. It’s very engaging. I’m a new listener, so I’m looking forward to listening to all the episodes I’ve missed. Wish I had found this podcast sooner!

Fresh, creative, thought-provoking TREASURE!

I stumbled upon this podcast after meeting Jay on an airport shuttle. Little did I know that I'd stumbled into a TREASURE! The production values are off the chain. As a podcaster myself, I know what goes into creating an episode like one of these, and I am blown away. Truly unthinkable! But beyond the production values, I've learned a ton from listening. Jay goes beyond the "usual suspects" and makes me THINK. Truly valuable. I hope he keeps cranking 'em out. I'll keep listening as long as he does!

The best show about creativity + content marketing

This is a show about making. It's not about best practices or how-tos. Instead it's about people who make stuff. Jay's the anti-guru who lets his subjects and their work speak for themselves. He's your guide into their world. This is what makes this podcast the best content marketing podcast around. It's about stories and people.
