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 in my forties, 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!

Loving this

One of my favorite podcasts. The interviews are so good! Love Justin’s laugh!

Speeding Beauty ,

THE celebrity podcast!

A lot of the time we see a celebrity and think of their “glitz and glamorous” lifestyle and imagine their godliness. But what I love about this podcast is its’s ability to make celebrities into the real people they are and make them relatable. This is all done with the ease of Justin’s communication. Not to mention the episodes with his brother. It’s an intellectual delight and makes waiting for my kids in car loop picking so much more exciting! 🤎
