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.
Actress and comedian Sasheer Zamata joins Andy to discuss her origins in Okinawa and Indiana, why stage fright never fazed her, and possibly the world's worst therapist. Sasheer also talks about her role in the new show Home Economics.
Actor Richard Kind joins Andy to reflect on his impressive career on stage and screen. Richard shares how he's grown as an actor and why he never turns down work, even if it means acting some kid's Youtube series. Plus, Richard's life-changing workout routine.

Poet and author Patricia Lockwood calls Andy to share stories from her childhood on the road and in rectories, how she got COVID-19 at Harvard, and why she took magic mushrooms in preparation for this podcast. The two discuss her new book, No One Is Talking About This, and why it’s written with the neurodivergent in mind. Plus, an appearance by the celebrity cat Miette and a story about a gruff parrot.
Just a really good interviewer
I agree with a lot of the reviews saying that Andy is underrated. Andy, if you read these, I was a huge fan of your show "Andy Richter Controls the Universe!" (So funny, go watch it, people.) Anyway, Andy is a great interviewer and it really shows throughout this podcast. He always manages to go deep with people, and while there's a lot of humor, too, it's not just silliness. I like the structure of the three questions.
This guy is great why is he not on tv?
I have nothing to add
Thoughtful and funny.
Andy seems truly interested in his guests and asks thoughtful questions. You’re always guaranteed a good laugh as well.
