Less than 24 hours after announcing to the world his new gig as host of the 2015 Academy Awards, Doogie Houser/How I Met Your Mother/Gone Girl star Neil Patrick Harris took a trip to midtown Manhattan and visited the SiriusXM Studios.

During his visit, Harris took part in a SiriusXM Town Hall with Entertainment Weekly’s Matt Bean, joined Larry Flick on OutQ, chatted with The Highway host Storme Warren and even met a certain star of Orange is the New Black.

If you scroll down far enough, you’ll find more than a dozen audio clips from Harris’ appearance (over 40 minutes of the man formerly known as Barney Stinson!) from his three interviews. Alternatively, if you’re in a rush, or your boss is in the next room, or you’re about to lose cell service on the subway, we’ve included seven photos that summarize NPH’s day:

1. If NPH could perform a musical duet with anyone at the Oscars, it’d be with either Snow White, Lady Gaga, Adele or P!nk. He seemed particularly intrigued by performing with P!nk:

2. Harris was promoting the release of his new book, Choose Your Own Autobiography. He even spilled a secret about the book.

3. A guest in our Town Hall with Harris asked him for a celebrity crush. NPH’s response was perfect.

4. NPH evoked a little Breaking Bad when trying to explain how he evolved from Doogie Houser to a triple threat. (Or is it quadruple threat? Or quintuple?)

5. We learned NPH’s first acting role was as Toto in a high school production of Wizard of Oz. He didn’t have too many lines.

6. How I Met Your Mother fans might appreciate Harris’ take on the controversial finale of the show.

7. Maybe the best part of the day, though? He ran into Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox in the halls!
