Great conversations with creative minds!

If there's one thing you can hear in CJ's interviews, it's his genuine joy for the search and discovery of the spark in some of today's most creative minds. Every episode leaves me wanting to start a new movement... And that's what it's all about: finding what you are all about, and doing it to not just impact but create culture.
