Actor, comedian and long-time Conan O’Brien buddy Andy Richter is now the host of his own podcast, The Three Questions with Andy Richter.
The podcast will have Richter asking each guest three questions in a search of figuring out who they really are: Where do you come from? Where are you going? What have you learned? As a press release explains, “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.”
The Team Coco and Earwolf podcast’s first episode debuted on July 8, and Richter sat down with actor and author Abbi Jacobson. The duo discussed everything from Jacobson’s upbringing near Philadelphia to the importance of finding your “tribe,” and Jacobson also looked ahead to her future post-Broad City.
On forthcoming episodes, Richter will interview the likes of Russian Doll star Natasha Lyonne, comedian Ron Funches, actress and writer Amy Sedaris, The Big Bang Theory actress and neurophysicist Mayim Balik, and comedian Joel Kim Booster, to name a few.
“This is, by far, the greatest podcast I’ve ever hosted,” Richter said in a statement.
The show has received some early success already, topping the Apple Podcasts charts after its first episode, and Richter is fittingly excited about it.
The podcast marks the third time Team Coco has worked with the Earwolf podcast network. Other than The Three Questions, the two companies also produce Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend and Inside Conan: An Important Hollywood Podcast.
The first episode is all that’s currently available (listen here), but new episodes of The Three Questions with Andy Richter will debut every Tuesday starting next week on July 16. The show will be available through most podcast sources, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Google Podcasts.
