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 41 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!

Great pod!

I listen weekly and look forward to who Justin talks to each week. Thanks for making such a great podcast! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Meh

It was a fun podcast but for the life of me I do not understand the begining and the ending of the podcast. Justin talks to his brohter(?) to start the show and to end the show. It is 100% skippable and 100% superfluous! Then there's the awful, and far too long ad reads! And the coup de gras, way way way too often than not you get to listen to a stoner, actor, celebrity talk politics! Like anyone cares! Keep politics out of the podcast! Ugh, I really wanted to like the pod, but after a while it's just rinse and repeat with Justin.
