David Huntsberger has some big personal news to share but he was the victim of a robbery earlier in the day which is at the forefront of his mind. Wendy Molyneux is here and she's still enjoying her minimal home decor. In fact, she might want to bring it with her to the afterlife. I'm still talking about cardistry which is a word Wendy hates. Also, she would like to purchase Dave and Tony's dogs and knows nothing about going rates.

First-time guest Tim Kalpakis (Birthday Boys, The Sloppy Boys) joins us from his standing desk and he's into creepy stuff but in a lovable way. Plus his band has a new album out! Jackie Johnson is here and she's pro probiotic. Tony is still happy and we're not about it to let it go unnoticed. Also Tony and Jackie are both friends with Tim so we do a spontaneous test to see who knows him better. I'm wondering if as podcasters and creators we should be thinking of the new people or the regulars and also, isn't Tim getting tired of standing? Plus Yes Please or Oh Puhleeze (black licorice) and Just Me Or Everyone and some hot Claremont Colleges consortium talk. Plus Uranus!

Actor, writer and producer Melissa Gilbert joins this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend. Melissa is probably best known for her work on Little House on the Prairie where she played Laura Ingalls Wilder from 1974 to 1984. She also appeared in The Diary of Anne Frank and The Miracle Worker and went on to do voice work and musical theater. She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, was president of SAG for four years and competed on Dancing with the Stars.

Now she has a production company with her husband Timothy Busfield and Jeff Daniels and they've just released their first feature, Guest Artist.

We also answered your questions.
