Check Out: Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend - don't we all?

There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, maybe even billions, of podcasts out there. Why would you bother listening to a podcast featuring an off air talkshow host (Conan O'Brien) and two unknowns (Sona Movsesian and Matt Gourley). Well to start off, the theme song is The White Stripes' "We're Going to Be Friends" Conan's talent is obvious and his improv and voices are hilarious. The other two hosts are interesting people in their own right. Matt Gourley with so much podcasting experience, knows how to tell a good story well. Sona Movsesian has the benefit of having once been Conan's assistant for many years and brings a grounding to the show that keeps it funny (and gets her own good lines in there too).

Each hour-long episode is capped one each side by 10-15 minutes of the three of them chatting, and they go on such diverse topics as babies with red hair, and rejected James Bond songs - always entertaining! It is like listening to a band that knows their instruments well and have enough confidence to simply play some good music. The best part is that there are over three and half years’ worth of podcasts, so if you find you don't like a particular guest, just skip it. They are, of course, available to subscribe, but if you ever want to go to the source, they are all here:
