With a journalistic background and stints working with talent such as comedy producer John Lloyd, Justin stumbled upon the idea for ChannelFlip while having a chat with the QI production team in a bar. Wil, who had an idea for making TV work on the internet, happened to be in earshot. He pulled up a chair and the rest is history.
