Things Jian Ghomeshi wants to get to

  • Other covers of “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” besides the one on Glee (Steve Perry, July 20, ≈19:12: “I was going to get to that”)
  • How the death of macho will make the world look like a very different place (Reihan Salam, also July 20, ≈5:43: “OK, I want to get to that in a second”)
  • When reading one’s old work, deficiencies leap out at you (Martin Amis, July 23, ≈22:20: “Let me get to that”)
  • The trickiness of using a script as merely as “a blueprint” for improvisation (John Leguizamo, July 15, ≈10:16: “Let me get to some of the difficulties in a second”)
  • How to get rid oneself of the burden of being called iconic (John Cleese, July 16, ≈2:25: “Well, we’ll get to that, hopefully”)

    That’s always bugged me. Can’t he just start with his scripted stuff and if the guest naturally wants to go somewhere with the conversation then go with it rather than cutting them off. He could always use one of his awkward segues to get back onto his script.
