  1. 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.)

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    I was thinking that, too. It definitely made it even funnier. Especially on the Roger Stone song, where the tuneless screeching kept getting higher and higher as the song went on.

    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.

  5. 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?

    It really seemed like Patton was disappointed when you told him the time was up.

    When he said, "Awww," I actually felt bad for him. He seemed like he was having such a nice time. Why couldn't you have just gone longer?


    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!
