You will like this podcast
If you are a fan of something or way into a hobby or sport, chances are Justin will be interviewing someone you admire on this podcast or introducing you to intersting people you haven't yet become an admirer of. Love the conversational interviews, but make no mistake, Justin demonstrates a deep understanding of his guests and their backgrounds and structures these discussions masterfully.
The Plug: a superbly awesome podcast
It’s only a few episodes in, but The Plug is easily my favorite podcast of 2020 and quite possibly my favorite podcast ever. The format is deceptively simple: Justin interviews interesting people from the worlds of the arts and sports. Justin’s easy going style makes the listener feel like they’re listening in on a casual conversation between friends. But Justin’s incisive questioning breezes past the obvious and gets at deeper more thoughtful issues like inspiration, life lessons and second acts. It’s really, really good. This is what podcasts were invented for. Do yourself a favor and subscribe.
Defining “Keeping it Real”
Justin Jay has an uncanny ability to get his guests guard down in a way that allows them to reveal their passions, fears and things in general that everyday people can relate to. Look out Joe Rogan!
