Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend is a podcast featuring the veteran late night talk show host. Presented under the guise of him looking to be friends with the celebrities he interviews, it often turns into more in-depth interviews with his guests. The show will usually take a break when summer arrives (or drop an extended interview or two). This year things changed.

While Conan hosts the show, he is usually joined by his faithful and hilarious assistant Sona Movsesian and his producer and podcaster extraordinaire Matt Gourley. Together, the three will begin and end the show by bantering, playing games and needling each other whilst displaying a genuine affection for each other. It is often a highlight of the show. As summer moves along and guest interviews are on hold, the show has turned the three way têtes-à-têtes into the main attraction.

Titled Summer S’mores With Conan and The Chill Chums, the podcast now features shorter episodes consisting entirely of Conan, Sona and Matt. With their sharp wits and palpable chemistry on full display the results have been funny and delightful. It has become wonderful way to momentarily forget what a nightmarish hellscape 2020 has been.
