Insanely addicting and hilarious

I honestly feel like Conan, Sona and Matt are my long-lost friends that I never was able to meet in Uni, we would be the cool kids strolling down the locker rooms in a typical high school. I love how they start off and end the podcast with absolutely nothing (like a reality Seinfeld) but the middle interviewing part is still hilarious. Some of the topics are insane-listen to believe it! You will be sucked into Conans laugh it is so infectious. Sona’s laugh is gold. This is one of my favourite podcasts.
