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.

Funniest podcast

I have just discovered Conan (watched his episode on muderville on Netflix) Iam now a fan and absolutely love this show - defo the funniest podcast out and I’m bingeing it as I have lots to catch up on - if you need cheered up listen to this podcast, keep up the great work guys - Love from Liverpool, UK

Good...but one needs to tread carefully

A quick-witted, funny and seemingly nice man. But, there is quite a lot of obvious and subliminal politics, so be alert. I skip the woke episodes - often featuring a ghastly American politician or politician's wife - and screen out the social-programming nonsense. What remains is good.

Accurate

Conan’s explanation of how an engine works at 23:04 in the Howard Stern episode from 20th May 2019 is, in essence, correct. I’ve only just discovered the podcast and I’m looking forward to catching up with more entertaining and instructive content.
