The New Studio

It sounds great. I think we need verbal descriptions of various minutiae, such as the hurdy-gurdy in the corner the Conan stole from a dead street performer, Matt’s hat collection hanging from the walls as sound baffling, and wanted posters of Sona from various jurisdictions.

Almost got into a car accident, twice listening to this.

I love Conan and the gang, and I love this show!

Trying to raise the average

Dear Conesy,

Each time you release a new episode, I submit a new five star rating to increase your stars because I know you’re an A+ student and need 5 stars not 4.8. I’ll keep tapping til we get there.
