But there’s much more the show as Jeff gets into the why of things. For example, he talks about the pull of ice cream being nostalgic, that every time we have a bite as an adult, it reminds us of people we used to be close to, and that makes us happy.
Goldblum is first an actor before he is an interviewer, which is a good thing for the show but might also be a limitation to it as well.
