    Brian Cox, Samantha Bee | Kill Bill

    American treasure Stevie Wonder urged senators to protect voting rights in a video released yesterday, and a newscaster in Guadalajara sounded off against anti-vaxxers in a fiery rant on live TV. In tonight's Pod Show exclusive, Stephen vents to Jon about covid anxieties and contagious pumas. Meanwhile… Stephen helps the ubiquitous earworm “Baby Shark” song celebrate a milestone, and helps our head writer Opus Moreschi answer a tricky question from his father. Then, “Succession” star and author of the new memoir, “Putting the Rabbit in the Hat,” Brian Cox joins Stephen for a two-part interview that kicks off with a look back at his parents, his childhood in Scotland, and the experiences that cemented his desire to become an entertainer. Next, our good friend Samantha Bee stops by to celebrate the 200th episode of her namesake TBS show, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” and explain to Stephen what she means when she says this season will be “nut-nut.”

    Bradley Cooper Takes The Colbert Questionert, Corey Stoll | The More You Knomicron

    Stephen brings you another edition of “Disinformation Station” in an attempt to debunk some of the latest crazy covid cures, and that pillow guy has employed some very fuzzy math in his latest attempt to overturn the 2020 election results. Meanwhile… A baseball team mascot recently learned a valuable lesson in how to crop photos for social media. Next, if you don’t know his favorite smell, or the most-used app on his phone, do you really know “Nightmare Alley” and “Licorice Pizza” star Bradley Cooper? Then Corey Stoll talks Shakespeare with Stephen, and confesses that he has no interest in joining the 1% despite portraying one of them in “Billions” on Showtime. And every night before the show, Stephen answers a few questions from his live studio audience. This time, he fields hard-hitting inquiries about South Carolina barbecue, what he misses most about his home state, the perfect pizza, his facial hair, and no conversation with Stephen Colbert is complete without a "Lord of The Rings" deep dive.

    Keanu Reeves Takes The Colbert Questionert, Caitríona Balfe | Cor-only A Matter Of Time

    Dr. Fauci predicts that Omicron will infect “just about everybody” in this country, but there are reasons to be hopeful because scientists announced that cannabis may help the body fight off the coronavirus. Next, Stephen gives an update on small business owner Zack Redmon, whose Redmon’s Popcorn shop was temporarily forced to close after the #ColbertSmallBizBump sent scores of hungry customers, and the health department, to his doorstep.

I need my Stephen

I’ve watched Stephen’s late night shows since Day One. The podcast doesn’t take the place of watching but if I missed something (and didn’t DVR it) I like being able to fill in the blanks. If the podcast includes Stephen answering audience questions, that is a nice bonus.

Intelligent rocket scientist ,

Yesss!!! …But…

The ads are dangerously louder than the programming ‼️🙉

I’m a HUGE fan of Stephen Colbert—have been since The Colbert Report (OK—actually since TDS)

The podcast satisfies 90% of my needs, with the added benefit of not having to be tied to a screen🏃🏋️‍♂️

Just Dial. Down. Those. Ads.
