At more than 200 episodes and 5+MM downloads, Jake Sasseville’s long-running talk show is a catalyst to the heart and mind. It features inspirational interviews with masters, heart-searching conversations with presidents of fortune 500 companies and NBA teams and highlights the common thread of what makes us all profoundly human. Widely considered as one of the most influential interviewers of his generation (and the youngest TV host in late night TV history on ABC), Jake’s style is inquisitive, humorous and heartfelt. He’s open about weight issues, watching his brother die when he was 17, failing in dozens of business ventures during his 20s, his recovery in 12 step programs — and his most recent move to Maui, the launch of his Institute and his global real estate endeavors.

Jogyo is a Grammy-nominated musician from Kingston, Jamaica but who spent his teens and 20s in New York City. His style borders art-rock and hip hop with an artisan showmanship akin to Lady Gaga.

One year ago at the time of this interview (July 2014) Jogyo was walking home from his friends Brooklyn apartment on a bright Sunday afternoon when he was gruesomely and savagely attacked by a deranged man with a hammer. The attack, which Jogyo shares details of in a loving, almost peaceful way, left him blind.

In this poignant exchange, Jake and Jogyo discuss the art of forgiveness, and how Jogyo wanted to find it in himself to forgive his assailant even as he was being attacked so that if he did die, that he would have died at peace. A lesson of tremendous compassion for us all.

While he's been left blind, Jogyo sees much clearer than most of us. He discusses art, the creation of music, his work with children and others with autism and a way of life that is compassionate and gentle. 

The Jake Sasseville Show is produced by Jake Sasseville, Gregory Stutzer, Vivienne Kelly and Kodi Seaton. Contributing producers include Topher Keene. (c) 2014 JAKE INC All Rights Reserved
