Has a fictional character ever had their own podcast? While we’re not completely sure if it’s happened before, one thing is certain about the topic: Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy is definitely the most well-known character to do it.
Ferrell is bringing his iconic Anchorman character back for Season 2 of the Ron Burgundy Podcast, where he appears in-character as he welcomes guests and muses over a number of random topics. The first season included episodes about meditation, modern-day events, bullying, being stuck in an elevator, Christmas, and much more.
Ferrell has been doing the late-night TV rounds in character as Burgundy, visiting with The Late Show With Stpehen Colbert, Conoan O’Brien, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Throughout his appearances, Ferrell has done some stand-up comedy as the character and sat down with the hosts to talk about some very random topics.
Here’s a look at some of those appearances:
