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.

Conan’s laugh is THE BEST!!!

Michelle Obama’s appearance on this podcast is the only reason I started listening to it; I hadn’t expected to form a genuine desire to catch every new episode. I’ve found that no matter which guest is being interviewed, Conan’s quirky, self-deprecating humor brings about some zany and goofy exchanges, but conversations mostly provide interesting windows into the humanity of the person he’s interviewing. Don’t get me wrong, he’s no Terri Gross, but his approach is still effective. The rapport amongst Conan and his two cohosts, Sona and Matt, is utterly charming; I especially enjoy how he clearly has the highest of regard for Sona ... even when he’s saying absurdly and sometimes seemingly disparaging comments about her, his genuine respect and admiration comes through. My favorite part of this podcast is Conan’s laughter. I absolutely love when he finds something genuinely funny - his laugh makes me laugh even more. It just makes me happy! Highly entertaining and enjoyable listen every single time.

This Show is Slowly Ruining My Life

.... but in a good way? maybe? I’m already shouting “Kedakai!! As God made her!” at unsuspecting victims, and now I will be dramatically whispering “REVEAL” to these same sad tormented people because nothing written down will ever be funnier than Bad Sound Effects Man completely biffing his shot the one time he was handed a decent cue. Also those frigging windmill leg noises... oh no, I might never hold a normal conversation again. But I am entertained, which is all I wanted. So THANK YOU Matt, Sona, and Conan. I guess.
