Fresh, creative, thought-provoking TREASURE!

I stumbled upon this podcast after meeting Jay on an airport shuttle. Little did I know that I'd stumbled into a TREASURE! The production values are off the chain. As a podcaster myself, I know what goes into creating an episode like one of these, and I am blown away. Truly unthinkable! But beyond the production values, I've learned a ton from listening. Jay goes beyond the "usual suspects" and makes me THINK. Truly valuable. I hope he keeps cranking 'em out. I'll keep listening as long as he does!

The best show about creativity + content marketing

This is a show about making. It's not about best practices or how-tos. Instead it's about people who make stuff. Jay's the anti-guru who lets his subjects and their work speak for themselves. He's your guide into their world. This is what makes this podcast the best content marketing podcast around. It's about stories and people.

A thought leader to pay attention to...

Jay Acunzo's Unthinkable podcast was a gem I randomly found about a year ago and it's still the best subscribe I've made to date. Jay's talk show storytelling style is as captivating as some of the best like Malcom Gladwell of Outliers and Dan Carlin of Hardcore History. Do your self a favor and tune in. It's an fantastic life choice I promise.

Better than NPR

Jay Acunzo's Unthinkable is more than a podcast; it's a work of art, and it's profound.As creative and invocative as the title: Unthinkable, Jays NPR style story telling is so well done that it makes you interested in learning more about things you never even thought about.STORY TELLING: if you want to become a better story teller, definitely take notes from Jay's work.POSITIVELY UNCONVENTIONAL: I love Jay's "Unthinkable" mission:"The mission of Unthinkable is to inspire you to do exceptional work by trusting what makes you an exception: your intuition."YES! Definitely tune in. The quality is as good as NPR style, but better because it's focused on entrepreneurs, authors and other creatives.Definitely 5 star!

Uncommonly good

I just bumped into this podcast and listened to the show about Grado headphones. I want to go on and on about how skilled Jay was in crafting the story and really taking us behind the scenes, but I'm also concerned that there are NO four star reviews here. There should be at least one or two, right? Maybe even a three star one and a one star from a troll. Because if they are all five star reviews, then won't some folks come by and just think the reviews were padded? So I thought I'd give a four star review to help bring some "reality" to the reviews...but I can't. It's a five star podcast from start to finish. Exceptional care to detail and refreshingly different from so many other podcasts. And different in a way that compelled me to try to enter my email address in Jay's newsletter subscription box while I was driving in the rain. A man has got to know his limitations and I waited until I got home. Very well done, Jay, and thanks. Sorry I couldn't give you four stars.

Exceptionally well crafted

In short: Good show. Would listen again. Good friend. Would friend again.Now for the longer, more verbose review:Jay, the host of Unthinkable, is an amazing story teller that pays attention to the details. Put these two skills together and you get an extremely high quality, enjoyable episode every time you listen to this show. In the age of short cuts and click-bait laden content, Jay's unwavering commitment to quality is just... well, Unthinkable! I'll add that I also know Jay in real life and can say with certainty that he actually practices what he preaches every day. He's a genuine gent who works hard on his craft every day.Now, you could argue that being friends with Jay should null out my review, but I disagree. The fact I've actually listened to almost every podcast episode that he's made, considering that I *already* have to regularly listen to him, is a testament to the quality of the show. I make the time to listen because it's worth listening to this show and you should too.

Inspiring to say the least

Unthinkable is one of those podcasts that's not only in my regular listening rotation but is also one of my go to podcasts when I need creative inspiration, extra motivation, or a bit of insight into a problem. Jay has created something that allows us all to reflect, learn and clallenge our assumptions so we can be better creatiors and people.

NOT a podcast about marketing, it's about fulfilling work.

Let's be clear, yes, there is an underlying support structure to this podcast that is held up through marketing references, case studies, and people in the space, but the I find the vast majority of discussions and topics covered have nothing to do with marketing, and everything to do with doing fulfilling work that... in it's rawest state, is fundamentally the reason we as humans exist. A little deep? Maybe, but it's the truth.For me personally, at a not-young-age and in tech, I JUST realized that I've been going about my side projects all wrong. Always trying to do something I think will sell, not doing things that I want to do even if nobody ever saw it. Unthinkable functions great as a "tour guide" that gives you a true north for those of us who have side projects, but may lose sight along the way.Before this review becomes too far into the "I LOST 50 POUNDS WITH UNTHINKABLE" zone, I just want to share, that my current side project is a direct result of Unthinkable, and another great podcast, "Louder Than Words" with John Bonini. It's something for me, some good friends, as well as other makers and creators.Keep up the good work Jay.
