I've noticed this as well. It often seems to be a substitute for "Well". Thus, instead of:

Q: "How did you come up with that idea?"
A: "Well, I was sitting at home one day..."

we now have:

Q: "How did you come up with that idea?"
A: "So, I was sitting at home one day..."

It's fucking irritating. I don't know when it started, but I began to notice it late last year.
