Enjoyed getting to know Andy

I wasn’t familiar with Andy’s life and career before I started listening to this podcast. Some folks have criticized him for excessively talking about himself and over his guests. (Yep, sometimes he does. I have friends and family who do, too. And I still love and listen to them! ha). I’ve actually appreciated the opportunity to hear his story. The podcast is relatively new, so I’m sure Andy and team are tweaking based on constructive feedback as things go along. Or maybe not? Honestly, it’s not a big deal. These are interesting, organic conversations, and I feel part of the appeal is that we’re all eavesdropping on two human beings just having a bit of a chat.

Huge Stern Fan however...

I don’t say this lightly, Andy Richter is possibly the best long form interviewer going today. There’s a vulnerability that is missing in most versions of this sort of thing.
