    Episode 458 - There's Always A New Woah

    Dan, I get your point, but then Premium shows go away with no advanced notice, too. [FWIW, none of this is really directed at you; maybe someone who actually does work for Earwolf will read it.] This happened recently with RBTV and Preem Stream (which I actually enjoyed more than Whooch prime), and WSGLL suddenly ended a "season"; if I'm subscribing for a year at a time, I'd like to have some assurance that the shows I listen to will actually still be around. After ~2 years of subscribing, I've listened to everything in the back catalog that I want to listen to, and at that point, I think it's really debatable as to whether it's good value for money. The media landscape has evolved beyond the point where companies can have the attitude that they can just charge $5/mo and people will pay it because it's essentially nothing, because when everyone does it, it really adds up. (I know it's weird to be complaining about Premium when the context is another show being added to Premium, but the point is that I sympathize with everyone who doesn't have Premium, and it's hard to blame them at this point.)

    SEASON 5

    I doubt anyone will even read this, so I won't start a new thread for Season 6, but last week's episode is one of the best ever, and a perfect encapsulation of "John Lennon". Will Hines is the guest, and the first 30 minutes is nothing but the two characters talking about the minutia of their Central Park softball team and various tangents.

    SEASON 5

    First two eps were great as always. Currently listening to #3 with Carl Tart as James Brown. A perfect character in the mold of MC Sugar Butt and Larry Blackman.

    Episode 32 - Billy Eichner

    This whole episode was really good, but that last segment was amazing. Does anyone else feel like this whole series has been one long, ironic journey where Conan has these guests on every week, and in the end it turns out that he and Matt became best friends?
  5. Comedian Billy Eichner feels mixed about being Conan O’Brien’s friend. Billy sits down with Conan to talk about his dream guests for ‘Billy on the Street,’ creating his own world in the industry, writing the first major gay rom-com, and voicing Timon in the remake of The Lion King. Plus, Conan and producer Matt Gourley resolve a scheduling dispute. Got a question for Conan? Call our voicemail: (323) 451-2821. For Conan videos, tour dates and more visit TeamCoco.com.

    Episode 607 - Are You a Heaux?

    What a wonderful episode!
  7. I love how that was simultaneously a logical, relatively innocuous question, but also one that perfectly plays into the contentiousness between Scott and Paul's characters.
  8. "I was never gonna get it." "Oh no! The En Vogue!"

    Episode 605 - Full Ninja Rights

    Man, Shaun was practically BEGGING Scott to ask "Oh, you say 'baby' too?", and Scott kept leaving him hanging.

    Episode 604 - Hashtag Song Goals with Seth Green

    Yes! Also, the lead vocal rhythms on the verses of that song are all over the place, so it's a TERRIBLE song for two people to try to sing together a capella.

    Episode 604 - Hashtag Song Goals with Seth Green

    The funniest thing about Hashtag Song Goals is that there was absolutely no reason it needed to be two people, and their awkward attempts at singing in unison might have been even better than the actual lyrics.

    Episode 602 - Four...Dollars Hundred

    Yes! That's definitely what I was thinking of, thanks.

    Episode 602 - Four...Dollars Hundred

    While I was listening to this, I kept thinking that Will had also played a basketball coach in another recent episode, but I can't find it. I checked his last ~2 years of appearances, and the only one that doesn't list his character in the description is the 2018 Holiday Spectacular. Since these are usually all recurring characters, I assume he was playing Morpheus, but then it also feels like a perfectly Will Hines thing to not do that. Does anyone know who he was playing in that episode, or remember another coach character?

    Episode 601 - 20th Anniversary Special

    To use an Aussie phrase I recently learned on Conan Without Borders...Fuck me dead, Becky is a great character.

    Episode 598 - Secret Shopping with Motley Crue

    So yeah, Tim's show is fucking great.

    Episode 22 - Patton Oswalt

    Patton was on Conan (the TV show) last week, and I think they recorded this before that, so they would have had a limited window.

    Episode 434 - Welcome to Barnsdall

    I know it's dumb to complain about podcast content, but I'm really not happy about the gradual transformation of my (former) favorite pop culture podcast into "Talking Dead" for a live comedy show which is attended by a few dozen people. Seventeen uninterrupted minutes at the top of this episode.

    Episode 596 - Mr. Met and the Legitimate Witch

    I couldn't believe that Scott wasn't familiar with the term "spon-con", but then I realized that he probably just calls it "sored-tent".

    Episode 595 - Mother's Olive Oil

    Great ep! Playing some of Demi's songs gave it a real old school CDR feel. Did anyone else think it was funny that Mother sounded a lot like Lois Griffin just one week after Peter Griffin was on the show?

    Episode 594 - Now It's Time For A Breakdown

    Will Hines is so good that he manages to do the heavy lifting for other characters' bits. He's an improv force multiplier.

    Episode 19 - Ray Romano

    Here's a fun coincidence - As discussed on the pod, they just released a bunch of remote segments from Late Night and Conan. I only watched one of these on Monday (Andy at Woodstock '94), and the clip included brief in-studio bookends. In the one after it, Conan teased their next guest...Ray Romano!

    Episode 593 - Get In The Way Gremlin

    "According to my lower back tattoo" might be the greatest opening line since "I'm pregnant!" PYOW PYOW!

    Episode 592 - The PeeE Neurs

    Damn, this was so good. I fucking lost it when Scott said "So you're not eSTRANGEd? And you don't like it?", and Carl was like "I don't know what you're talking about."

    Episode 590 - Bread Mop

    Great ep. For anyone who hasn't checked out I'm Sorry, it's quite possibly the funniest show on television.
  25. "Now the beep is getting emotional!" The joy that Jason and Lennon get from occasionally ganging up to shut down some of Jessica's weaker improvs is fucking hilarious.
