40: Chris Jones: On Storytelling, Luck and Opportunity

Chris Jones has reached the highest levels of storytelling. His work for Esquire magazine generated widespread attention and won him numerous awards. More recently, Jones has been screenwriting for the Netflix series Away, which was based on one of his articles. It's a surprising outcome for someone who never intended to be a writer and who at 26 years of age, walked in off the street to Esquire's offices in New York. Jones shares fascinating insights about the intersectoin of luck and talent, revelations about the world of writing, anecdotes from some of his most famous interviews. He also talks about why you should say I love you more often and why he always writes the ending first. And for the first time ever, he shares aloud the heartwarming story that generated so much attention on Twitter.
