Host Andy Richter asks the same three questions to each guest: Where do you come from? Where are you going? What have you learned? These three simple questions, when answered honestly and thoughtfully, are enough to provide a pretty complete picture of who a person is. The answers are what Andy always wants to know about people. This will not be a one-sided process, as Andy won’t shy away from getting personal himself.

Keeping me sane at work

Andy you are awesome! Listened to Conan’s podcast and loved the episode with you. Now yours and Conan’s are my go to podcasts to help me get through work.
One of my favorite episodes is with Scott Thompson whom I adore from Kids in the Hall. I would Love to see you two in a sitcom, Scott the seasoned actor (a bit diva-ish) and you his, from the beginning, assistant (very intelligent but gets overlooked.). And his secret is he is in love with Scott.
