this is THE ONLY show I know of where the host says some intro sentences and then words “but first…” and it’s not the beginning of an ad!
“Let’s take a break to talk about X sponsor.” And then he talks to the other guests for 2 minutes before the break. It’s adorable.
Isn’t this what Leo is doing mostly? I love his constant restarting of a sentence “our show is brought to you by…” and being interrupted by his parallel way of thoughts several times before he actually gets to the ad
