AV Club: What’s the worst example of interviewers trying to match that perception by being just as wacky as they think you are?

John Flansburgh: That probably comes up most in doing morning radio, because the morning-radio guys, they just want everybody to be game for their stuff. I mean, as a feminist, I take serious issue with a lot of that stuff. That’s a good question, but my mind flashes to the morning-radio jocks bringing a stripper into the studio, and feeling like I was looking for the hyperspace button. [emphasis mine]
