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.

Lunch break

Conan and the chill chums never disappoint when I need a good laugh. I listen to this podcast on my lunch break and always return to work in a good mood and feeling a little lighter. I highly recommend this… just be ready to look like a fool laughing out loud by yourself in public. I think Conan would embrace that which makes it acceptable.

Pure gold

Definitely biased as a Conan fanboy since I can remember but honestly there’s just an amazing chemistry and Conan really is one of the greatest interviewers, up there with Howard Stern, Letterman, etc. If you like comedy which you should you must give a try.

Love it!

I try to save these episodes for when I’m on long drives to help me stay awake and focused. It’s all so funny and I won’t fall asleep at the wheel when listening !
