Conan is amazing and very entertaining.

I love David.

David is such a great addition to the show. He’s so funny and a great fit. I hope he’s able to stick around once Sona comes back, too. I LOVE DAVID!

Heidi Rue ,

Welcome

I enjoy the unfettered Conan, cuss words, rants and all. I love his equally intelligent and silly humor. Welcome to the world of Podcasting! More Matt Gorley is always welcome!

I feel a twinge of happiness and pride whenever Matt feeds Conan a good line or makes him laugh heartily. WE know how great Matt is, but now Conan, comedy legend, is getting to know it too! Thank you for the special Ep to honor Norm Macdonald.
