“The Carson Podcast” with Mark Malkoff

Jimmy Fallon has taken over The Tonight Show this week. What better time to reminisce about Johnny Carson, right? Right. Welcome to “The Carson Podcast,” hosted by Mark Malkoff.

Seth Meyers still works on the same floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza as Saturday Night Live, but for the first time since 2001, he’s not working on SNL any longer. So it’s not goodbye so much as it is good luck, as his SNL castmates paid tribute to their former boss — he was their Head Writer, after all — in this video made during Seth’s last week on the show at the beginning of February.
