John Oliver Interviews Edward Snowden About Surveillance, Dick Pics, and More

Man oh man, when John Oliver does an interview, it’s a damn fine one.

This week’s Last Week Tonight ran a little longer than usual because, well, Oliver and co. scored a huge interview with the one and only Edward Snowden all the way in Russia. John pulled off the balance between legitimately poignant questions and questions about hot pockets and nude photos. 

It’s clear that Oliver is accomplishing his apparent mission to talk, at length and in-depth, topics that we would hate talking about outside of a focus group or a college course and also be thoroughly entertaining while doing so.

Clear out 33:15 of your day today and watch yet another historic moment for Last Week Tonight.
