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.

Eka Gunawan R ,

Thank god for this podcast

Been a long time fan of Conan, yet in Asia we never had access to Conan’s show.
This podcast is better than the TV show, the chemistry, the deep conversations with guest that I never had the chance to get to know them more.
Sona & Gourley, you guys really put a good balance into this whole show
Conan you are always hilarious and through this podcast I find you to be very insightful

Apple podcast should add the 6th star feature just for this podcast

Please keep it up team coco
