Love it

I didn’t even know Conan had a podcast until about a week ago. I’ve been listening to some of the earlier ones from 2018. One of them really cheered me up after the recent death of my dad. It was at the end of one of the episodes (Nick Offerman, I think) where Conan talks about how nobody does “last words” any more. Dark humour and I couldn’t stop laughing and I thought how if my dad was still here and in good health he would laugh at it too. Thanks Conan, I’m a big fan.

Brian Cox - best episode ever!

Love this podcast but the Brian Cox episode is definitely the funniest as Brian humbly tries to explain to an incredulous Conan that yes, he was quite a successful popstar back in the day.

Keep mentioning Eduardo

I love this podcast ever since it was created but I love it even more in recent episodes where a producer called Eduardo is constantly mentioned by Conan. Well, my name is Eduardo and I sampled the soundbytes “Eduardo is a genius” and “Eduardo has expressive eyes and are now filled with disappointment” so I can use them is whatsapp chats, etc.

I’ll change this to 5 stars if I hear the words “Eduardo is extremely handsome” and “Eduardo is so much funnier than anyone I’ve met”. Keep going, and thanks to Eduardo!
