CJ Casciotta — Let’s Get Weird!


My guest today is the weird and fantastic CJ Casciotta. CJ is my friend and a friend to so many. He is a writer and a media maker. He has spoken to communities like Lululemon, The Salvation Army, TEDx, and Charity:Water. Additionally, he has partnered with MGM Studios, The United Nations Foundation, and others like these on various types of projects. 

CJ’s message is compelling to me because he says the kinds of things I’m always saying to the people around me BUT he’s saying them in his very unique way. And I like his message a lot. From a very young age, we are told to stand in line, draw in the lines, follow the rules, be this way, and do it that way. CJ has a different message that I think you’re going to find super compelling. 

In addition to us being excited about having CJ on the show, if you’re listening to this on the day it releases—September 11—his book comes out today! If you’re listening to this after 9/11, shame on you for not devouring this podcast every Tuesday when it comes out. Just kidding. But seriously, his book “Get Weird: Discover the Surprising Secret to Making a Difference” is out right now! You’re also going to want to download his Weird Wins course for free on his website! 

If you’re not convinced that you need his book yet, maybe Seth Godin will change your mind: “Reassuring, moving, and practical, this book will help you embrace the magic you've always had.”
