Description

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.

Amazing episode. Probably my favorite guest. I didn't feel the passing of time and was surprised when it ended. I'd love more guests of this type bantering with Conan.

Confession time, I was in deep despair after having to fire one of my taxidermy chipmunks, Mr. Chirpy, for chronic tardiness, when low and behold….an ad for ZipRecruiter! Those folks really know Conan’s audience.

I have to say this is one of my favorite episodes, being able to hear the openness about psychotherapy and the healing aspect of being able to talk about what troubles us as actual people is refreshing in this day and age. I really enjoy Conan because I empathize with him so much on his thought processes and how our minds are sometimes the most damaging, but working through it.
