Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Alison has two to three bits of personal news to share, some of which Daniel doesn't even know yet. But first, David shares the important role potato salad played in his life and talks about the experience of  being filmed for the documentary Tig and Last Comic Standing. Then a heated round of our "signature" segment that we don't know the name of, "Yes Puh-leeze, Oh Puh-leeze or Bitch Please?" breaks out regarding milk versus dark chocolate. Tempers flare! Then we determine the best email sign off which gives Alison a new lease on life, discuss grudges and Alison divulges the weird way she takes pills. Plus a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Everyone on the show is disturbed with the state of the world. After introducing our guests (Renee Colvert and Daniel Van Kirk join us) and talking about unflattering nicknames, ice box cakes, various tri-state areas and a sitcom about Dinosaurs that Alison never knew existed, we discuss historical parallels and the guilt of doting on our own kids in our comfortable homes while migrant families are being separated and detained. Then we read an email from a listener who backs up Alison's fear that Daniel's laundry will swallow her own, the short culinary shrift pudding and tapioca receive, whether there's a market for savory puddings, Daniel Van Kirk's new show Pen Pals Podcast and a gross story involving flying bits of fingernails. We also talk about Ray Oldhafer and his podcast and do a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

I briefly talk about the horror of separating migrant kids from their parents and my concerns about the extent of this crisis. Then I move on to lighter fare, taking your questions on everything from how I knew Daniel was The One to favorite X song, aversion to change, a difference of opinion I had with my therapist regarding whether another woman is a bitch or not (she is) and the Romance Writers of America. Plus more including the return of Fan Phone Call!

Alison and Daniel have added a new/used car to their lives but Alison is bristling at her new straight-down-the-middle mom-in-her-40s identity. Also, there was a guy at the dealership who couldn't believe Alison didn't want to buy an extended warranty and Daniel is sure he's a psychopath. Jeff concurs, based on this book and the framed predator skin print. David has some hilarious skiing stories, Renee is here to talk to dudes about hair and we're now the number one army surplus duffel bag podcast. Plus Killing Eve, Fleabag, Japanese game shows, a round of Just Me Or Everyone and more.

Television and radio journalist Lauren Sivan (Oxygen's Abuse of Power, KABC with Dr. Drew) found herself part of the news cycle late last year when she spoke out about her own disturbing Harvey Weinstein experience. We talk about the incident and bizarre aftermath, why she chose to come forward (though really, she says she'd been telling everyone who would listen for years), her experiences with harassment, the culture at Fox News where she worked for many years, feeling betrayed by her most recent employer and the way they handled her ouster, relationships in general, working with Dr. Drew, hosting Oxygen's Abuse of Power and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.
