What’s your idea of a good time?
July 11, 2017

When I look back on the long list of people who’ve joined us on the talk show the thing that strikes me is how impressive they are. It’s been a treat to get to know them a little. To hear them tell it, the same. They almost always gush about how much fun it is to be on the program.

Why wouldn’t it be? “Please, tell me more” has never evoked anything bad. Think about it. Someone asks you a question, really listens to your answer, and asks you to go on. Please.

Doesn’t that feel great?

Everyone is a storyteller dying for lack of an audience.” Not on my show. Everyone has an attentive audience in me. I’m a good listener, and there’s a better-than-good chance you’ll come away from the hour with a new appreciation for yourself. Maybe it’s revelation, maybe it’s celebration. Whatever it is, taking an hour to reflect on what you’re doing right isn’t likely to make you feel anything but terrific.
