Life is Short with Justin Long

Wondery

Hi, I’m Justin Long. My favorite thing about being an actor (aside from the residual checks) is getting inside the head of my character. Off screen, I have an insatiable curiosity for human behavior and find the minutiae of life and people’s personalities fascinating. On my new podcast, LIFE IS SHORT with Justin Long, I’ll dig into the lives of some of our greatest actors, musicians, athletes, and thinkers to find out what makes them tick and what ticks them off. I’ll get beyond first impressions to a side of each guest you never knew before – from their favorite cereal to their biggest regret. Life is short so we all have to make difficult decisions about how to spend it — that’s what I’ll be trying to get to the bottom of. Nothing is out of bounds! Well…some things are out of bounds. I don’t want this to ruin my career!
