Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend (comedy)

Oh hi! On this super duper episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, Kevin Pereira of G4's Attack of the Show stops by to talk about being a child of the internet (and how it leaves you desensitized to shocking images), his early days as a web impressario/nerd who rollerbladed yet dated a cheerleader, Multiplicity, He Said/She Said and Bring It On, daschunds, relationships, performance anxiety and myriad things which are dazzling and hilarious. And also drugs. Gary and I didn't want the episode to end. We are both in love with Kevin. Also we are in love with Alfred Schulz who called in to do a newish/oldish segment called Things You Never Hear People Say. Also also: we took your calls.

On the third episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, WTF host and podcast superstar Marc Maron was kind enough to let us invade his cat ranch and interview him on his own turf. We talked about sad songs, sad sex, hateful internet trolls and how to handle them, anger and rage and anxiety and insecurity, relationships, interviewing styles, body dysmorphia, Joe Rogan, “Carolla-tards” and how to keep a relationship alive.We also took a question from the phantom topic sombrero and talked about other stuff which was fascinating and scintillating. We didn’t see any cats, which is curious.

On the first episode we talked about my hobbit house, Pete’s first sexual experiences and what he’s looking for in a girl (hint: himself) (oooh, that’s an unintentional dirty joke!)(I really just mean he wants a girl who’s similar to him)(Okay enough parentheticals.)
