Conan on TBS
And it was great.

There was a point where they talked about Norm.  How about talking to Norm?  If he isn't a guest this season, I will be sad.

The Conan25 site has quietly launched a stand-up archive section.  Some of these are surreal to watch.

Finally listened to the Letterman podcast. It was fantastic. Loved how Dave just tells him, “how about we stop talking about my show”.

Tina Fey is up next.

The Tina Fey one is good as well.  I like how they commemorate the releases of some of the podcast episodes by putting old interviews with the guest from the LATE NIGHT days on Youtube.  I have only seen Letterman's first appearance on Conan in short clips before this.

In a podcast about a year ago, I think, Conan singled out director Abe Ferrera as the worst interviewee in his twenty-five year career as a host, citing the fact that he showed up wasted and at one point bolted 30 Rock, forcing the segment producer to chase him down and somehow corral him back in time to shoot his appearance.  The interview came up again when Willem Dafoe brought it up last night.  It has now appeared on Conan's official Youtube channel so that future generations can enjoy it in reference quality:

The Ghana special was really good. The movie poster stuff was a bit wonky though.

The trailer kind of distracted from the rest of the special, but it was cool to see the guy responsible for some of those posters. I might want to check out WAR BUS now. I also really enjoyed the visit with the coffin maker, and pretty much everything with Sam Richardson. He and Conan make a good team, and Richardson sharing his thoughts on the Year of Return was pretty powerful.

The scene with the kids from Chicago was good too.

Finished the podcast with Neil Young today. That was good too. More and more I am liking the podcast better than the TV show.

The team is getting better at making these travel shows.  I believe Ghana makes thirteen - a whole season's worth of Conan Without Borders, produced simultaneously with the commitments of a nightly show over a five year period.  Whenever the plug is finally pulled on the talk show, Conan has laid a strong foundation for the next career phase.

I'm gonna take a wild guess that Brian Stack was the Late Show writer who came up with this.

TBS re-aired the Italy special last night. It’s easily my favorite. Conan and Jordan are so good.

I hate that it's been three years since Norm's last appearance on the show.  Meanwhile's he already got his second spot on Davd Spade's show lined up.  Norm needs to be back on Conan's couch, a guest on his podcast, and his traveling companion on CONAN WITHOUT BORDERS: QUEBEC.

On a weekly basis.

Was really expecting the Nikki Glazer podcast to be a lot more blue than it ended up being. I mean, it had its moments but not what I was expecting. I still liked it a lot though.

The Barkley podcast was fantastic. The stuff with Conan’s small fingers killed me.

Wednesday will mark the tenth anniversary of Conan's final NBC show. Crazy.

It seems to have flown under the radar, but there is a Triumph podcast now.  It is a live quiz show, sort of like a particularly vulgar answer to NPR's "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me."  The premiere episode:

I can't imagine they'll be making these too frequently considering all the material Smigel and company must have to prepare for this.  Still, any Triumph content is welcome.

Thanks for the heads up. It looks like this was produced under the banner of Starburns Audio...is that owned by Dino Stamatopoulos?

The latest Conan pod is Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara...not as good as some of the other shows, although it was fascinating to learn that Levy was shooting a softcore porn movie the night of the moon landing.
I was in a horror-comedy called BLACK HOLLER. It's now on Prime Video. Check it out!

Amazingly, that Dropbox link of Conan's final TONIGHT SHOW that somebody put on the internet still works for me, five years later.

That’s disappointing to hear. The quality of the podcast that is...

Yeah, the Billy Dee Williams stuff was fantastic.
