Late night talk show host, Conan O’Brien announced today he will launch a new weekly podcast, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, November 19th with an episode featuring Will Ferrell. According to Rolling Stone:
The show is centered around the conceit that, after decades of interviewing people on late-night television, O’Brien has never made a real friend and he’s hoping a podcast will aid him in his quest for companionship. “After 25 years of extensive market research we have learned that people want to hear my voice without seeing my face,” O’Brien cracked in a statement.
