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!

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.

Oh my goodness! I love love loved this podcast... this was my first Life is Short episode I have listened too, I laughed so hard and was so captivated from the very beginning to the end, I honestly didn't want it to end. I wanted to crawl through my speaker and to the other side and just hang out with Justin, Christian, and Ginnifer so we could all become best friends! AMAZING! I can't rave about or suggest a better podcast to listen too! THANK YOU! (p.s. I totally forgot about Ed, it was one of my favorites back in the day.) 🥰

Why would any woman, based on his roll as Joe in You, would any woman lust for him? Penn is attractive in life but as Joe? What is wrong with people?
