On Adam Ruins Everything, comedian Adam Conover challenge our preconceived notions about the world around us and exposes surprising truths about topics ranging from home ownership (actually a terrible investment) to red carpet fashion (basically just an extended infomercial for brands).

On November 22, the show’s theme is prisons, and we have an exclusive clip in which Conover and his famous pompadour discuss the checkered past of solitary confinement, and the terrible effects it can have on inmates, which often go unaddressed.
