A weekly podcast hosted by American comedian and talk show host Conan O'Brien, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend debuted in November 2018. The podcast is co-hosted by O'Brien's assistant, Sona Movsesian, and producer, Matt Gourley. Its premise is to help O’Brien cultivate friendships with people who have been on his talk show, as in the 25 years he has been hosting, his interviews rarely lead to friendship. It follows the format of O’Brien chatting with guests who are comedians and actors in the industry (including Jeff Goldblum, Adam Sandler, Stephen Colbert, David Letterman, Will Ferrell, Kristen Bell, Bill Burr, Tom Hanks, and Tina Fey), personal friends (such as Lisa Kudrow and Timothy Olyphant), or people he admires (such as Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, Neil Young, and Robert Caro). Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend is one of the top podcasts on iTunes.
