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.

Always cheers me up!

I’m an Indian guy living in Prague. Although I’m an introvert, the lockdowns did get to me and this podcast is really helping me get through the pandemic. I listen to it when I go for a run and this sort of motivates me to go running everyday so that I can listen to the podcast. I’m making my way through all the older episodes and I love it!

Freckles to Gingers!

Oh Big O’Brian, hail to thee!
Understand your anger at work and your colleagues. We are all frustrated and angry at work. Luckily your anger makes me laugh a lot which causes that I am less angry at my work and I am nicer to my colleagues, soooooo... win-win! A small tip, if you are angry at work start listening to some good podcasts that would calm you or cheer you up (something about roman history perhaps?) ;)

I remember good old days where Tom Hanks was in the podcast.
