Jay Acunzo

Founder of Unthinkable Media

Jay is an award-winning podcaster, an energetic keynote speaker, and a veteran content marketer and creator. He’s served as a digital media strategist at Google, head of content at HubSpot, and vice president of content and community for the VC firm, NextView.

Jay’s podcast, Unthinkable, explores examples of work that seems crazy … until you hear their side of the story.

Jay’s work has been cited in courses at Harvard Business School, by writers at The New York Times and The Washington Post, and by investors on TV’s Shark Tank. One blog called him a “marketing antihero,” causing Jay to immediately buy a Batman mask. Unfortunately, his wife does not allow him to wear it in public.

Today, Jay is the founder of Unthinkable Media, which helps brands create refreshingly entertaining shows about people who do great work.
