Ekkard Bäuerle ,

Thanks a lot

From day one, this has been incredible - just like everything Conan did so far! Thanks a lot for making me laugh so hard and especially for the things you guys did with Norm McDonald, my personal Jesus. God rest his soul.

Better than celebrity interviews

When Conan interview his fans it’s always a super fun and improv type of conversation. Really loving the show.

NicAnsu ,

Great show, but…

why aren’ there more episodes yet? I started with the first episode in May and finally caught up to date with all of them last week.
I really got to know and love Conan and his chill chums and I‘m always having so much fun when listening to your podcast.
Also, an episode with Jordan would be so great. Just watched the whole hour of your meal in Japan.
Greetings from not-only-oktoberfest-city Munich.
And one challenge for You Conan: try and spell „Niklas Falkenhagen“ correctly ;)
