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.

the parts before and after the interviews aren't any good to be honest. Your assistant / co-host is as funny as a broomstick in a corner. Why isn't Andy the co-host? It would be much funnier if Conan could riff with somebody who is actually funny and quick witted.

I thought I'd sped the podcast playback up accidentally but it was just Seth explaining that he is from a city.
