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.

“As himself?”

Long-time listener, first time rater. Of course the show is awesome, blah-blah, but it just occured to me that at the end Matt says “Conan O’Brien as himself”. And it made me wonder - is this really Conan’s real self that we get to hear? Or is this all a facade, and in real life he’s not a self-depricating Irish-Dutch woman with a niche sense of humour? Please continue, like, forever.

We needed this today

I don’t think I ever laughed as hard as when I was listening to the 4 minutes of you all trying to get Conan to use a zoom with Macbook. Brings up fond memories of what I go through with my parents soo faar away. Thank you I needed this on a Monday morning in these times. Love and stay safe from Hungary! ;) (I would love it if you guys once visited my country :D)

Great, except for one annoying detail.

I can only say great things about the podcast, except for the very distracting music during the guest introduction. It literally jarrs me from the listening experience. I can’t even skip over it like I do with the ads (I am outside the US, so I am not the target audience). Otherwise the show is great. Really. Keep up the fantastic work.
