Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.
Hey there Hubsters! After a nice break week, it’s another week of fake news (and it seems The Colbert Report’s weeks are numbered). Any news from the break that you hope they cover? As always let us know what you hope they cover and what guests you’re looking forward to in the comments below!
Stephen’s guests this week are two education policy specialists, two authors, and a basketball coach.
Jon’s guests this week are an Environmental Protection Agency administrator, a senator, a morning show anchor, and an author.
When news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub catch it for a post we call “In the Press”.
Hello Hubsters! Once again, we present the latest buzz regarding Stephen, Jon and everyone in their circle. Well, the Superb Owl is over and it’s that time of year when sports fans are dying for oxygen. There’s no more football until September and MLB spring training is just around the corner, but hey at least there’s the Olympics, right? The Luge is just as good as Peyton Manning blowing the snap.
In this edition we have lots about Stephen’s Wonderful Pistachios ads and and a whole swath of late night stuff.

Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on The Colbert Report and The Daily Show each week.
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. As for me, I’m winding down here: this is my next-to-last post. And I’m thrilled that Stephen has a really wide variety of guests this week for me to cover: one activist with his own unique take on environmental destruction; one multi-billionaire who’s doing good in the world; a much-praised short story writer; and a musician and music critic who examined one of the most popular symphonies in the classical canon. It’s a pretty rich list.
I thought last week had some superb pieces, both the WORD and also Stephen’s scathing commentary on the gerrymandering by the Virginia State Legislature. It’s truly appalling that this still happens in this day and age. Also kudos to one of Larry Wilmore’s all-too-rare appearances on The Daily Show; he was stunningly brilliant and reminded me why I love his work so much. I’ve been so thrilled with both Jon and Stephen in their 2013 shows; they’re fired up and ready to go, and I feel such energy from them both. It’s wonderful, and very necessary in this world we live in.
