thank you for joining us, i have been watching you for a little bit. are you excited to get out into the field and be out there with the people? >> the people, yes, i got to meet the people for the first time, they are great and they are so kind, there are so many of them. it was good to do the opposition behind the desk, it is a great job that you feel disconnected, so the ability to go out there and see these stories close up, smell the stories, feel the stories, taste the stories, get arrested for the stories, that was definitely a privilege. >> what was the inspiration behind going out and doing this? i know that you are interested in this, you want to bring a fresh perspective to this kind of thing?>> yes, overall, the inspiration was to do a docu- seriescomedy central. looks likeon both sides of

out there and meet some of these folks, again, people show up. i do it a lot from my couch, and i think a lot of people do it as well, but when you go to places in america where people care and they want to make america a better place, they show up, they get out there and they fight for the america that they want to live in. i think that was inspiring to see.>> is it hard to be funny about some of these things that you are talking about?s, but you also want to entertain your viewers. is it hard to bring humor to the subjects at times? >> it definitely is. we are trying to balance something with this, i wanted to cover important issues and dealing with ptsd can be a dark issue. undocumented immigrants who can't go to college, it is not an issue that you see a lot of humor in. and we want to bring another level to it, we wanted to be there with the folks. we found a lot of humor poking
