really great to hear Richter here--always was one of those people who you like in the context they're presented, but you get the sense that there's an interesting guy there that you mostly dont see because of genrr & format constraints.

Description

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.
