I think that's a good idea.
Just some stupid funny stuff.
Well, people like to go and see extra stuff.
I think it's good. And apparently, CBS got me to do those pieces for the thing [he is talking about Phil's Diaries on the CBS Insider, which I know from "pieces for the thing," because Phil and I speak each other's unspoken language fluently], and it's the first time they've ever had their on-air people do that. And they said that it was hugely popular. That and my photographs, which I don't know if...whatever. So they're like, "Keep doing them, because people are going to them."...I'm like, "Okay."
Well, I think people are very eager for extra info. They start to get in there and they feel like they want to have a little better idea of...you know, what REALLY happened. Especially when there's so much going on. But anyway. So tell me about your new show.
Well, it premieres this Sunday, 8:00 [PM Eastern] on the Discovery Channel. So it'll be on every Sunday. It's thirteen one-hours. The philosophy -- I mean, if you see from the web site, there's a lot of information there about all the different episodes. And the philosophy came from a near-death experience that I had when I was nineteen. I was hosting an adventure show, and I got stuck in a shipwreck, separated from the guy that I'd been diving down there with, and I found myself inside 22,000 tons of steel, in the blackness, not knowing where up and down was. And breathing too fast, because I was panicking. And I have claustrophobia pretty bad, and so I started to panic more and more. And I really didn't think I was going to get out. And I thought that was it. And I didn't know where to go. I didn't know where he was, and I thought...if I move from where he last saw me, then that's going to be it. And this thing is huge. I mean, if you imagine a boat the size of the Love Boat, underwater, 120 feet down, on its right side -- the starboard side -- I thought that was it. And thankfully, as you can tell, I got out. And I was so scared by it that I decided to write this list of things to do before I died. And so I immediately wrote it down on a paper bag. And just, dug into the brain and started writing down ideas of everything I wanted to do. And I was nineteen years old, so it was a pretty selfish list.
