Tig's old pal, the one and only Conan O'Brien, discusses the people he turns to for advice and why the storied prankster himself doesn't actually like pranks. The legendary late-night host helps Tig counsel a grandmother magician on how to handle six-year-old hecklers, criticizes an overzealous office whistleblower and reflects on advice he's given to college graduates in commencement speeches he delivered over the past two decades.

Key Episodes: The Simpsons by Conan O'Brien (1992-93)
Reel Deep Dive
One of the bedrock pop cultural institutions of its time, The Simpsons is unsurprisingly a formative TV experience for many of the commentators on Reel Deep Dive. Like with The Twilight Zone, Ryan has decided to tackle the program by doing a series of recordings where he and his guests break down the program by focusing on the most influential members of its writing staff. First up is Conan O'Brien, whose long career as a talk show host makes him the only Simpsons writer who's a celebrity outside of nerd circles. We're taking a look at the three full episodes of The Simpsons O'Brien wrote before he got an opportunity to replace David Letterman on NBC. His tenure may not have been lengthy, but O'Brien was a big presence on The Simpsons as it transitioned away from its relatively grounded early period and began infusing more of the absurdism and satire that it would become beloved for. O'Brien's Simpsons reputation is also bolstered by the fact that one of his episodes, "Marge And The Monorail", is frequently argued as an all-timer in TV history. Ryan is joined by Rachel and Sylvan for this one. Discussion topics include corporate malfeasance, how mass media can warp public opinion, and the relatability of a kid crushing on a cool older girl. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ryan-valentine3/support
