Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Big news! Whereas you thought the termite updates were a thing of the past, it's looking like they might be returning. Before you race to turn off the podcast, know that in this episode you'll also hear a caller's favorite dumb joke, Daniel's embarrassing work call courtesy of Alison not realizing he was on the phone, a discussion of words and semiotics, how it is smart people can believe lies (or how Alison did), who is and isn't on the team and more. Plus iTunes Comments of the Week!

Comic, actor, writer and host Candice Thompson (Lights Out with David Spade, The New Negroes) joins the show to talk about processing world events without standup as an outlet, feeling a responsibility to speak about race, not fitting into a "box" due to her appearance, her childhood, her spirit pastry, learning to be vulnerable, doing comedy with Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart, her podcast The Struggle with Candice Thompson and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Greg Heller AND Jenna Kim Jones AND The Hashtag Al (Allan Moss)??? That's right! We're all together on this episode. Greg has a special song he sings during diaper blowouts with his baby, Jenna and Al have periodic pests and I'm reminiscing about Orange County punk shows and that special blend of having a crush on someone but also being afraid for my life.

Jackie Johnson is back and she isn't afraid to let her feet and a seagull statue do the talking. Jordan Morris is also here and he's been seeing a nutritionist. We do a round of Just Me Or Everyone and Jackie has one involving towels and privates. Plus some timely Wayne's World talk. And we all question our beliefs about cops.

Can you slam a door open? Daniel claims I can and do. He also takes issue with how I hurl my body into bed. Normally these things wouldn't be a problem however he took a supplement which has turned him into Alpha Dan and he can't sleep. We also discuss what's going on in the world, feeling unloved, the word "tushy," therapy, precancerous cells, band-aids and more. And we take your calls on fire arms and depression (separate calls).
