J. K. Simmons (Whiplash, Spiderman) joins us this week to share stories from his time in this industry going from waiting tables and scrounging for pizza - to becoming an Academy Award Winning actor and making his name in films like Whiplash, Spiderman, and Juno… J. K. talks about the love that is behind the anger of many of his iconic performances while going on to tell us what the most fulfilling moment of his career was with the great Aaron Sorkin. The real treat of this episode was when his brother, David Simmons (The UBU Project) joined us. David talks about being a suicide attempt survivor and how he’s using his experience, recovery, and musical background to save the lives of our youth. Powerful episode this week folks, hope you enjoy it.
