Funny and interesting take on the inner workings

Two episodes in. so far so good. Will update later.

This is an important Hollywood podcast

I relisten to these podcasts quite a bit, they’re a great expansion of the Cono-verse!
I learned about scraps from the very funny hosts of Inside Conan and I watched them while I made tomato sauce, it turned out pretty good! Great Quarantine listening.

Get Smigel back ASAP...

His two episodes have been the funniest, and most interesting. I enjoy the podcast overall, but sometimes there’s a bit too much interrupting from Mike. I think Jessie’s laugh and reactions are adorable. She’s often funnier with just a single word or surprised response than the guest. How about other members of the band? Max especially! You know he’s got a few thousand good stories...
