John Emmet Tracy with the Kook Jester Show logo in the cornerListen as Dustin Dickout, heart dad and host of The Kook Jester Show podcast, interviews John Emmet Tracy, fellow heart dad, emcee of CHN’s annual wine gala, and actor on the show Yellowstone:—Embrace-Your-Stadium-Moment-e1mv9se

One day a kooky guy woke up and realized he knew very little about the world. Wanting to fix that, he started a podcast. One of the themes of The Kook Jester Show is to help young people figure out what really lights them up career-wise by listening to interviews with people that do many different types of jobs. There are currently over 30 different interviews.

Today’s guest is actor John Emmet Tracy. You will know him as Ellis Steele from Yellowstone, the modern western epic on the Paramount Network and Amazon Prime. We chat about his character’s adaptive qualities, artistic moments versus story momentum, and playing villains—aka, the misunderstood. He kicks off our interview by sharing a story that his dad told him.
