NPR: John Hodgman is Bill Gates – funny interview segment

I just listened to the podcast of the 3/16/2007 NPR’s On The Media. They had an interview with Bill Gates on “the future of television.” Blah blah blah.

At the end of the interview, the host (Bob Garfield):

Bob Garfield: “I want to ask you one more thing. Those Mac ads…how do you feel about the John Hodgman character?”

Bill Gates: “Ah ah ah I can’t comment on someone else’s ad.”

Bob Garfield: “Ok, but… He’s you.”

Bill Gates: “Uhh I’m not gonna comment on someone else’s ad.”

(end of interview)

This takes place approx. 38:55 into the program, if you want to the whole thing. Maybe not newsbreaking but rather funny.
