Stephen Colbert joins Jon to defend his 8 hour-a-day screen habit and preach the benefits of a Twitter-free lifestyle. The two talk about what it took to produce The Late Show during the pandemic, why Stephen is glad his live audience is back, and what some of the darkest days of American democracy looked like behind the scenes at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Jon also asks Stephen about his perspective on cancel culture and why comedy must be rooted in empathy.
