This is a show about think-for-yourselfers. 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.

So we aspire to do something exceptional, and we can't stand all that average noise created by the endless "hacks" and "cheats" and "secrets" out there. So now what? If all that expertise is simply generalized advice that gets us to average, what can we use to go from average to exceptional? What can we rely on to get the rest of the way there? 

Intuition.

But what the heck IS intuition? And how can we actually control it proactively?

Remarkable stories of what happens when you embrace constraints, rather than fight for "creative freedom" (and an exploration of what the heck "creative freedom" even means).

Stories today from First Round Capital (one of the premier venture capital firms in tech, with investments in Uber, Warby Parker, Blue Apron, Square, and more) and Soviet Visuals, a remarkable side project from a former Russian ballerina and current Facebook employee revealing something special about constraints.

What might happen if you embraced or even sought out constraints in your work, instead of fought them?
