Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend (comedy)

Alison recalls something she heard that always confused her when she was a teacher's aide at Vacation Bible School many years ago. Renee Colvert is back and she's dressed like supergirl. Danielle Radford is back and she was once hit by a bus. Not to be outdone, Jeff's been hit twice by cars. We also talk about toxic fandom, hair texture types, wearing a wig, Alison's eyebrow, Alison's windedness and a tiny bit of marital serendipity that Daniel and Alison experienced. Plus so much more including a bizarro Snack Chat (inspired by the Ortelan eating scene in Succession, don't worry we didn't eat them), dogs we're in love with and a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

It's Daniel's birthday and it's a big one. My God he's old! Alison and Daniel celebrated at a picturesque romantic restaurant that was neither. Renee and David are here and Renee snorted at a client. David won't tell us his birthday. Alison finds out that there's... oh no I started this sentence and then got a text and now I can't remember what I found out. Oh yes! I found out there's a podcast which shares a similar name to one of our segments and should I send a cease and desist? Also should I switch back to third person? Alison reveals her baby's gender and also recalls an embarrassing self-tanning disaster. Plus we do a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

It's been a heady week with National Lipstick Day and National Cheesecake day and we determine early on that businesses should hire us to consult for them since we have a lot of stuff figured out. Except we don't have any baby names at the ready so Daniel's put together a list. We also talk about Dr. Laura, whether to read other people's emails if they're handed to you, picking up money on the street, old timey pranks, Daniel's butt crack awareness, "The Rooster," and so much more. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Renee Colvert is convinced Alison can do a heel click and Daniel can do a cartwheel but she doesn't know what she's dealing with here. Also, she used to host a show called Fear Factor Live at Universal where audience members volunteered to be electrocuted for a t shirt. Audiobook bigwig and Bubble director Eric Martin is back and he's kicked off his new work-from-home attire of sweatpants to join us. (He wore pants.) Alison is excited about her upcoming interview with Corin "Corky" Nemec and isn't sure how much of her school girl crush to reveal to him. Daniel, meanwhile, had it bad for Ally Sheedy. We also talk about St. Elmo's Fire, Alison's constant morning sickness, Amazon Prime Day deals, whether Alison ever looked cool smoking and so much more. Plus a round of Just Me Or Everyone and a "Snack Hack" version of Snack Chat.
