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.

Tears and laughter and belly giggles

OMG, I haven’t laughed this hard in ages! Thank you thank you thank you! The last bit of the Seth Rohan podcast where Conan is making all those noises to the actions had me cry in laughter. Both my kids came running to check in on me because I was laughing and crying so hard.

HBO MAX

With how unfiltered and uncensored this podcast is, I can not wait to see Conan on HBO Max and see the shenanigans that will happen.

Baby Conan

I’ve been listening to this podcast for months while on maternity leave and on multiple occasions it ends in me laughing so hard I’m in physical pain. My second born is almost a year old now and I tend to listen to the podcast while he’s with me eating or playing, so I’m wondering.. what kind of son should I expect from exposing him to Conan as a baby.. classics music is supposed to make infants smarter, what does a Conan podcast do? Overall, I love this podcast.
