There’s a whistle and a vibration in my pocket, and I pull out my phone and it’s John Hodgman. He’s sitting in an airport, in a Delta Airlines lounge, nursing what appears to be a whiskey on ice. He wants to talk. Rather: he wants to answer my questions. And your questions. Anybody’s questions, really. Hodgman looks bored, but what he’s doing is fascinating. He’s filming himself, and broadcasting it live on an app called Periscope. As people ask him questions, or tell him to do things, he replies to them by writing on a napkin. It’s incredibly compelling, this chance to command a celebrity.
