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.

That guy could not have sounded more bored about throwing dynamite off a mountain.

A voice for the generations

Been a listener since day 1 (pretty literally).

This podcast started when my daughter was an infant (she’s now entering 1st grade), so some of her first aural memories on this Earth were the crow of the Cockaroo and the cry of the whirligig. I’ve had three more children since then so your show has literally been the soundtrack to these early years of late night feeds, diaper changes and screaming car rides.

I likewise grew up with Conan in my ear-I was born in June 1993 and my mom would turn on your show at night when she was up with me. I’ve been raised on a hearty diet of Conan and my children now are following the same honorable tradition.

Thank you, Conan, Sona, and Matt for helping fill my days with laughter and joy and for teaching me the best way to show you care is through laughter and insult comedy- I hope this show lasts another 30 years. Who wouldn’t want to hear a 90 year old Conan, 80 year old Matt, and 70 year old Sona do a Chill Chum Solo Stove 9000 ad read?
