Conan O'Brien Gets Serious About His History Major

As some of you know, Conan O'Brien was a history major at Harvard.  As a comedy writer, performer, and interviewer he is a wonderful example of what you can with a history major.  But it now appears that O'Brien is using his history degree in a more specific way.  Here he is doing some "serious jibber-jabber" with Woodrow Wilson biographer Scott Berg.  I must admit, it is hard to watch O'Brien go for long periods of time without cracking a joke.  (HT: Chris Gehrz).
