Alison is back from Sketchfest with stories to tell. Renee went to Sketchfest and is wearing a number of meals on her shirt. Joe Kwaczala is here having just performed a comedy show while people drove golf balls at his head. Plus so much more including a story of a guy who didn't recognize Alison even though he would have been delighted if he knew who she was, most likely.

Newscaster Courtney Friel stops by the show to talk about her just published memoir Tonight at 10: Kicking Booze and Breaking News in which she tells all about living as an addict while appearing to be a put together reporter. We talk about her decision to go public with her sobriety, the fact that a story from the book about Donald Trump hitting on her went viral which pushed up the release of the book, her years at Fox News and what she witnessed there, motherhood, divorce, meditation, panic attacks, not taking things personally, rehab, celebs who were hard to interview, her video podcast Keeping It Friel: Conversations on Recovery and so much more. We also took your questions.

Wendy Molyneux is back and she had a baby complete with dramatic water breaking moment! Also if you're rude to her she might follow you to your house. Dave Huntsberger was just in Canada and it went well except for one show which was challenging. Also he made shoes and still claims he's going to cut his hair. Pete the Retailer is here being distracted by thoughts of pancakes. Plus we have several important epiphanies about fashion and VSCO girls, talk about potato clocks and Spago and do a round of iTunes Comments of the Week and Just Me Or Everyone.
