John Hodgman on bbtv

Via BoingBoing TV comes a new video with the sometimes inscrutable John Hodgman, he of Apple ad and Daily Show fame. He’s writing his second book, More Information Than You Require, and in this interview, BBtv’s Xeni Jardin snuck into his room at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, where he’s busy writing. He goes on at length about mole men, Nick Nolte, the founding fathers of the U.S. (and their relationship with said mole men, Thomas Jefferson’s in particular), ham sandwiches, and Soylent Green (soylentgreenispeople!). Check it out, and of course, check out Hodgman’s book once it drops on October 21.
