Description

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!

I do not understand why I enjoy listening to JE so much, but everything he's in, I just like, relax and thoroughly enjoy his rambling.

I really enjoyed the conversation with Jason Biggs, he seems like a really great guy and I love his movies. I wish I could have heard him talk about what it was like working with Christina Ricci in Anything Else.

This episode is bittersweet because I had very similar conversations with my own grandmother who lived to be 100. Grandma Jody sounds delightful. 🥰🥰

This was my first listen to the show. Holy cow Justin has a way with people. Or maybe has a way with Kristen Bell. This was great.

I can't listen to this. I can put with any number of ads but that be-bop theme song/interlude music is far too annoying. Sorry, Justin.
