After 25 years at the Late Night desk, Conan realized that the only people at his holiday party are the men and women who work for him. Over the years and despite thousands of interviews, Conan has never made a real and lasting friendship with any of his celebrity guests. So, he started a podcast to do just that. Deeper, unboundedly playful, and free from FCC regulations, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend is a weekly opportunity for Conan to hang out with the people he enjoys most and perhaps find some real friendship along the way.

Amazing

Absolutely hilarious and often insightful too. All the talk and jokes between the hosts is also very entertaining. You feel part of them but it never feels like there’s too much inside jokes.

Penn Badgley episode is an absolute must-listen

As someone who grew up watching Gossip Girl, it totally gave me the joy of reliving iconic moments from my favorite show! It’s like a trip down memory lane, filled with inside jokes and shared nostalgia that only true fans can appreciate.

Hands down, this episode gets a resounding 👍 from me!
