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 good! Love Justin’s laugh!

OMG

You are a terrible podcast host. You’re very unprepared and you stutter a lot. you probably would be better. If you actually knew anything about the people you’re interviewing and had prepared questions.

Anywhoo

I love this podcast and my faves are the life is shorter ones with just Justin and Christian. The celebrity interviews are great and better than the majority of celebrity interview podcasts.
