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.

Funny and interesting, without ever trying too hard

Listening in from Nairobi, Kenya. The podcast really is amazing, without trying too hard at all. I’ve found it helps me relax, and always get a good laugh. Conan has great chemistry with his guests, and always seems to be at ease with them, and he makes them feel at ease as well. Plus he is naturally funny and witty. Sona and Matt contribute in a wonderful supportive role, and get their moments to shine as well. Lovely podcast.
