Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Inspired by Alie Ward's reunion talk on the last episode, Alison shares her own very recent reunion of a Sklar and his computer. This prompts a discussion of computer bags versus backpacks versus briefcases. Alison is having surgery soon and she's anxious. How do you advocate for yourself in a medical setting? David believes in presenting a united front. Plus the difference between being assertive and being a jerk. And a very special ologies quiz! And some steaming Circus Circus and cold soup talk and a round of Just Me Or Everyone. Plus some dogs that Alie rescued that are available for adoption!

The Sklar Brothers return to the show to talk about their new documentary Poop Talk for which they interviewed a number of comedians and experts. They did not interview Alison even though she has so much to say about poop and one feels this is a grave oversight. (She's been promised a spot in Poop Talk Number Two.) We also talk about parenting, Randy's surprising knowledge of Jennifer Aniston's love life, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Grey's Anatomy, individuating, their initial reluctance to do Poop Talk and so much more. Plus we took your questions and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.
