Potentially your only listener in the Qatar

Hey Conan, Sona and Matt!
I love listening to the podcast. The first time I heard about this podcast was from a YouTube comment where the video I watched was referenced in the podcast. I started listening regularly in January 2021 but have listened to about 80% of podcasts already.
Secondly, I would love it if Conan is introduced by Matt and then makes entrance with his trademark music like in WWE wrestler. Think of it as your iconic dance but with music/random sounds.
Thanks!

Conan cracks me up

Without a doubt one of the funniest podcasts out there. Conan basically interviews different celebrities for each episode. Irrespective of who the celebrity is the discussions can range from interesting, informative to extremely hilarious. Conan is often joined by Sona Movsesian and Matt Gourley who are both a joy and appear as a counter balance to Conan, foiling his ‘not so evil’ schemes to take over podcast land. Such a pleasure listening to this podcast on my way to work. I highly recommend.
