    Break the Wheel (ft. Tim Urban, Wait But Why)

    Tim Urban's blog Wait But Why ignores almost every best practice. Should we? Is it that simple? (Spoiler alert: No, but there's a story here...)

    What Is That?

    Or, better said, what is THAT? Today, we tackle a topic that's been tying people in knots for centuries, and instead of untying it or tying a new knot, we decide to just cut the rope at the part that matters most to us in our work, and get on with creating something that matters already.

There is no one like Jay

And no one who creates and teaches like Jay. Listen to an episode. You will be hooked. He's a true original storyteller and understands "making a difference" better than anyone. Awesome podcast from an awesome guy

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!
