About This Show
Their work seems crazy, until you hear their side of the story. This is a show about conventional thinking at work and the people who dare to question it. In a world overflowing with advice, gurus, tips, and tricks, it's easy to be average -- just follow everyone else's ideas. So what does it take to be exceptional? If you're a think-for-yourselfer, instead of a follow-the-lister, this is a podcast for you. Join host Jay Acunzo as he travels to the far reaches of the business world to dig up stories you've never heard revealing ideas you've never considered. It's Unthinkable.

Episode 003 Craft Driven
Jay's exploration of the stories and big ideas behind some of the world's best creators continues to inspire because he recognizes creative achievement in places where you might not expect to find passionate, craft-driven individuals.
Each episode is becoming increasingly focused and ends with an actionable "assignment" for the week.

Jay Acunzo, well done. To the writers, content marketers, strategists, and anyone else for that matter (Bill Simmons, Andy Dwyer, Michael Scott, etc) who are checking out Unthinkable, it is worthy of your time.
From watching Jay crush it behind-the-scenes via snapchat (@jayacunzo) and now after listening to the 1st episode, it is clear the man is passionate and has perspective about creating quality content. He did not just throw this together. The content, sound quality, flow, and the interviews meet the demand of you, the listener. He is breaking down the current sucky media business model which is everywhere. It has saturated the market with garbage and so-called "simple hacks". It's time to stand out, be creative, and add value. Jay and those he interviews are doing just that. Enjoy!
Jay, I wish you the best and look forward to watching/listening to your journey. A piece of advice from Ricky Bobby's father, Reese. You gotta learn to record a podcast with fear. There ain't nothing more frightening than recording with a live cougar in the studio. Good luck!
