Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend

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.

If you're not already obsessed with Robert Caro, esteemed author and noted friend of Conan, you soon will be. Robert Caro's The Power Broker is the bible for people who think critically about cities and urban design: how cities are formed, neighborhoods are destroyed, bridges are erected, fortunes are made, lives are ruined, and power is amassed. The problem is it's over 1100 pages long. Undeterred, Roman Mars (99% Invisible) and Elliott Kalan (The Daily Show, The Flop House) are leading a monthly audio book club dedicated to examining this modern masterpiece, one section a month, all year long. As an intro to this series, Roman and Elliott invited fellow Caro-head Conan O'Brien to chat about what makes Robert Caro so special. You can find the full Conan O’Brien episode on 99% Invisible here, and subscribe to 99% Invisible to hear our first Power Broker episode, featuring extremely special guest…Robert Caro.
