Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Kevin Porter joins us to talk about what might be the best show on TV right now (no spoilers) and explore Renee's new graphic t-shirt based identity. We also learn about "exvangelism," horny summer 2019, rompers, musical theater, word mispronunciations, camping, Tony's voting and so much more. Plus a round of iTunes Comments of the Week and there's a song we should have played but we didn't and it was kind of egregious on our part and I even gave it to Tony ahead of time and then just completely forgot. #fruit

I swear I was not intending to roast Tony more than once although that's kind of what I did. Wendy is here and she has a new cleansing routine which we almost talk about repeatedly. David has returned from his South Dakota sojourn. Alison is having a social and professional conundrum. Plus Save the Bell, dealing with hecklers, who merits their own wikipedia page and more.

Jordan Morris doesn't frost his tips but you'd certainly be forgiven for thinking so. You might not be forgiven for asking him though, which starts a conversation about men and shame around primping. Daniel discusses his desire, at one point, to get more tattoos, and Tony is angry at other people who have beards. I was here too but I forget what I said. Probably something funny, relevant and important. Lemme check the notes. Oh yes! We also talked about religion, the pressure to be religious in our hometowns with the exception of Daniel, and Daniel and my new neighbors who are very intriguing. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and had some hot 'sups.
