obnoxiously self-referential
 Mar 18, 2020
Justin interviews an eclectic mix of B list film folks and t.v. personalities and then dissects his own performance and that of his guests. The show is sometimes funny, sometimes mildly interesting. Good to accompany dog walks and for drifting to sleep.

Justin is a fantastic interviewer and the conversations flow so well. His manner is open, curious and good natured. (He also has a great voice!) I love the banter between Justin and his brother Christian- they seem like two really nice guys

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!
