Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Sara Schaefer is here and she has a book coming out August 11. I inhaled her book but haven't yet written a book report on it. Erin Foley is here and she's joining from her partner's mother's condo in Naples, Florida. Tony Thaxton is here and he has personal news involving his love life. Plus we talk about dry shampoo, clutter, online behavior, whitewater rafting, cliff diving, writing, ambition, crafting, big families and so much more.

It's late at night and Alison is both wearing and drinking coffee. Daniel objects to her characterization of events. She's instituting a new policy regarding letting it mellow and Daniel is overjoyed. Also she offers a bird's eye view of Daniel's work habits. Plus a discussion of "Unorthodox" on Netflix, the Hasid community that Alison and Daniel used to live next to, your calls and more.

Doug Benson and Doug Mellard of the new podcast Wide World of Dougs join the show to take an informal Doug quiz, discuss bears and fish preparations and weigh in on our constant conversation about card shuffling, juggling and bar flair. Also I mixed up guests and no one is making me feel better about it and Doug Mellard's dog is more famous than he is. Plus we do a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Sarah Ellis suffered a spinal cord injury at the beginning of the year and has been re-learning how to walk in the months since. But her story gets crazier than that. After emergency surgery to preserve mobility and a number of days in the hospital she was transferred to a rehab facility where the nurses noticed she seemed short of breath. An ultrasound revealed 15 blood clots in her legs and lungs—a rare side effect from the common blood thinner she'd been put on. She nearly died. After another emergency surgery to remove the clots she spent more time in the hospital and then it was back to the live-in rehab facility. I've been following her journey on social media and wondered how she manages to maintain such a seemingly positive attitude. We talked about all this, her experiences as an Apple Genius, IVF, dogs, musical theater and more.

Imagine a scenario where someone invites you to their house for coffee and either starts shuffling cards in a fancy way, starts juggling or starts doing bar flair. Which would be the weirdest? Wendy Molyneux, David Huntsberger, Tony Thaxton and I have strong opinions. We even drew Daniel into the mix. Plus moving during quarantine, a Scotland quiz and a surprise from Dave which I would tell you about but then it wouldn't be a surprise.

Alison is in a feisty mood and unfortunately she wants to talk about it. Daniel is stuck in the bathroom and thinks no one should have a wedding. (He's still upset about a fight he and Alison had regarding the color of the chairs.) Also he wants to talk about energy. Meet Predictbot3000 and his earlier incarnations and find out why Daniel is at odds with lemons and cockatiels. Plus the relentless horror of human beings, secret sauce, lobotomies and your calls! And iTunes Comments of the Week!

Do you shrink from confrontation or do you seek it out? Ken Reid, who's never met the hand of a drug dealer he didn't try to break (ok just once and he spared the thumbs) has some thoughts about confrontation as do Jackie and Tony. Jackie was supposed to return to LA but didn't and Tony is a little worried about Moose. Plus mocktails, horses, a quiz to see who knows Ken Reid best (play along at home) and Just Me Or Everyone.

Also some behind-the-scenes soundcheck chat, Alison's experience with hypnotherapy which apparently she never discussed with Daniel, a visit to her parents, listener calls, Covid testing, heartbreak, Daniel's descriptions of Owen and Elliot's personalities and more including iTunes Comments of the Week.
