Who would you want Conan to interview being a friend or talking about their friendship? I would love to have future episodes with Andy Richter and Jason Momoa. It should be required Jason and Conan drink Guinness throughout their chat.

Oh Andy Richter for sure. Even back in the '90s I always looked forward to the moments in the show when Conan and Andy just chat. Also clearly 'Conan O'Brien Needs A Friend' is just a subtweet at Andy.

But I also do kind of hope the show expands if it continues to not just be comedians - Conan's always been a good interviewer with musicians since he's such a big fan, for instance.

I've tweeted about this before...I like all of Conan's guests. That said, it's been mostly an old boys club. Not the kind of guys I think that would make up an old boys club, and most of them (Conan included) would probably be the first to say they wouldn't want to be a part of an old boy's club....but that's what it's turning into. It's weird because I've always thought of Conan as ahead of the curve with the history of his show, his humor, his intelligence and his ability to shake things up and be spontaneous. Here, on a format that he should have more freedom to do as he likes, he's opting to keep it a male buddy group. I guess I can't wrap my head around that this is his active choice. Yes, there are a few female guests. A FEW. Kristen Bell, wife of fellow friend guest Dax Shepard, and Megan Mullally (who came on with husband Nick Offerman), and Wanda Sykes. All excellent.  On his previous in-depth discussion series, Serious Jibber-Jabber there were no female guests. (I double checked on the Conan website, please correct me if one is missing.). Is it awkward for him to have a longer in depth with a female guest? Is it because he likely is friends with more dudes, and strictly following that for planning the show? My thought is he should make an effort and put himself in a slightly less comfortable, unnatural place (he'll be fine) in a conscious way-- like literally make a number count and book them, a woman for every man who has guested...and maybe in time it actually won't be so weird and unnatural, and he can have friends without having to think one way or another about it.  There are so many smart, witty, talented women who deserve the honor of being asked to participate.

Conan, when are you going to interview Andy Richter or Will Arnett? Also I would be interested in an interview with your wife. I would assume she’s interested in being your friend. Would you interview Norm MacDonald?

Bob Odenkirk.  Conan has brought up Bob in several episodes.   It's time to bring him on the show.

Among ALL talk show interviews in history, Norm Macdonald created some of the best interviews of all time with Conan FOR YEARS (possibly his guest appearances on Letterman could be the only other talk show that is comparable). What are you waiting for Conan?!?!

Mira Sorvino. She was the best guest for years and I don't think it's hyperbole to say that Conan would be on the wrong side of the #metoo movement if he doesn't reunite with her.

We want Norm Mcd! And Harry Shearer would be funny.

BTW, I've been getting strange reactions as I ride my bike on the beach path wearing my headphones tuned to your podcast...must be my 'shit-faced' grin which I can't control!
