    Jensen Karp (Get Up On This) is a true multi-hyphenate. He's a writer, a gallery owner, an entrepreneur, a producer, a manager and a former rapper. And an author: the upcoming Kanye West Owes Me $300 (And Other True Stories from a White Rapper Who Almost Made it Big), due out June 7, chronicles his unlikely rise as the rapper Hot Karl. We talked about his childhood in Woodland Hills, getting bullied for loving rap and hip hop, performing at age 12, rap battles, media savvy, prognosticating trend...more

  • Alison's Big Question, Jeff's Pot Epiphany, Jenna's Magical Jeans

    May 05 2016

    Should you wash and dry your jeans before getting them altered? It's a complicated issue and the Thursday gang is here to weigh in. Plus we recount some glorious pants past and talk about the fact Jenna has never had a pork chop and has only recently tried fried chicken. Plus Jeff shared his weed adventure and pot epiphany and I recall the same series of thoughts I would find myself having every single time I was high. Also we did a snack chat with mulberries, a round of Just Me Or Everyone and ...more

  • Rory Scovel Returns

    May 02 2016

    Comedian Rory Scovel returns to the show to talk about contrived honesty, people pleasing and how being a new father has affected his relationships, pretending to be easy breezy, not feeling the need to be a people pleaser onstage, eating and not eating meat and sugar, his belief that he has zero game, his friendship with Todd Glass, college bodies, being your own boss, Catholic school guilt and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

  • Layoffs, Takeoffs and Greg's Greatest Poop Story

    Apr 28 2016

    A few episodes ago we teased a particular Greg story and then didn't get to it and you guys were none too pleased. Here, finally is Greg's spiritual evacuation journey plus some news about Alison and Daniel (no, not THAT news), a Janae story that does not disappoint, sleeping with the lights on and more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Boogie.

  • Tiffany Haddish

    Apr 25 2016

    I first met comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish (Keanu, The Carmichael Show) when we both appeared on a radio show and ever since then I've hoped to have her on ARIYNBF. I'd heard bits and pieces of her story and got the sense she'd had a rough upbringing but I wasn't quite prepared for the intensity of what she'd experienced. Abusive parents, foster care, living in her car, an abusive first husband, care taking from the age of 8, and even as I write this I feel as if I'm not conveying the part...more

  • Al's Bug Out Bag, Greg's Mom's OJ Story, Alison's Aggressive Bed Making

    Apr 21 2016

    Ornery Jones and Old Bones Jones make an appearance on this episode as well as Craftsy Joe, Moss the Sauce, Helldog and The Supervisor. Because we were talking about nicknames. Which led to a discussion of The Juice and the revelation that Greg's Mom knew OJ Simpson in college. Plus my new drug, The Walking Dead, disaster preparedness, bed making, a round of Just Me Or Everyone and an adoptable dog named Marbles.

  • Arden Myrin

    Apr 18 2016

    I'm in love with actress, writer and comedian Arden Myrin. I love that she claims to have looked like "a little red-headed gentleman" until she was 19, I love that she describes herself as "silly and rascally" and I love listening to her talk about how for her, stand up has been a spiritual journey. Also, there's the story about what happened to her lady parts while enthusiastically doing the worm onstage but that one just makes me want to cross my legs for eternity. In addition, on this episode...more

  • Do Women Really Get Mad At Men for Holding Doors? Also: Banana Bread!

    Apr 14 2016

    In keeping with my New Year's resolution to be more social, I attended Greg Fitzsimmons 50th birthday party where I both had a good time and endured a shockingly painful massage. We also talked about Jenna's cling wrap battles, banana bread, whether women actually get mad at men for holding doors, not knowing about wine, bagging your own groceries, fears of home invasion and so much more. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Alpine.

  • Hutch Harris

    Apr 11 2016

    Hutch Harris of one of my very favorite bands The Thermals stops by Dining Room Studios to talk about what it's like playing in a band with someone he used to date, how he and Kathy met and why they broke up, Portland's "budtenders," recording the first Thermals album by himself and then putting a band together to play for Sub Pop, coolness not coming naturally to him, his childhood, growing up religious, taking PCP and then going to a church group, losing his virginity, how he got into comedy, ...more

  • Pilot Shoots and Lemon Pranks

    Apr 07 2016

    On this episode we recounted the recent shooting of my pilot and Greg's affinity for on-set pranks. Plus all the coffee I drink while performing, whether people have better sides, sausages, Vanderpump Rules, what #AL knows about pillows, everyone's pillow preference, how to write numbers, frozen dinners and upsetting revelations courtesy of my husband. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Mr. Wilson.

  • Margaret Cho

    Apr 04 2016

    For this very special episode, we went on location to Margaret Cho's house to talk with her about her recent appearance on Korean SNL, things that frighten her, learning how to talk about sexual abuse onstage and the challenge of asking people to laugh instead of cry, choosing anger over forgiveness, the role of violence in art, her upcoming album American Myth (it comes out April 29 and the songs are beautiful and haunting and still stuck in my head and you should definitely get the album), gro...more

  • Trash Chat and Buffet Wishes

    Mar 31 2016

    Is it rude to not tie your garbage bag before tossing it in the can? This was the genesis of a disagreement in the House of Greg so we moved said conflict to the show. We also did an epic Easter-themed Snack Chat with goodies Jenna and Al brought back from Utah, discussed buffets and Souplantation, discussed the word "plantation" and talked about Alison and Greg's upcoming TV shoot. Plus drug and injection chat in The Biological Clock, Dustin's wedding, Star Wars and Game of Thrones. And we did ...more

  • Rhea Seehorn Returns

    Mar 28 2016

    Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul) returns to the show to chat about being paralyzed by indecision, the audition process for Better Call Saul (it involved fake scripts and fake characters), the ways in which she is and isn't like BCS's Kim Wexler, auditioning in general and her evolving approach, the "agenda" she had for the first third of her career, what she used to look like, growing up in a chaotic household, why she considers Blink a "spiritual text," the surprising and hilarious way she met h...more

  • Email Systems and Drifter Butlers

    Mar 24 2016

    On this episode we talked about complicated restaurant orders, #Al's intense email system, drifter butlers, everyone's bad Australian accents, The Grateful Dead, John Mayer and the return of Yes Please or No Thank You Or Oh, Puh-leeze. We also did around of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Pernelia. (Update, Pernelia has been adopted. But check out Gus and Azul!)

  • Stevie Ryan Returns

    Mar 21 2016

    Stevie Ryan returns to the show to talk about kidney stones, being stoned, ballet and how it's helped her depression, depression in general, suicidal tendencies and cutting, being "on pointe," hypnotherapy, sleep eating, body dysmorphia, comedy pilots, auditions, drugs, dudes grinding on you, Tetris and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

  • Alison's Hugs and Big Pink Cats!

    Mar 17 2016

    Do I give the kind of hugs that could best be described as non-committal and tentative? I think of myself as a distributor of warm snuggly hugs however the feedback I've received of late would suggest otherwise. We delved into this gritty topic along with a discussion of a sex dream involving Jimmy Pardo, my recent consecutive social engagements, a backhanded insult which isn't a thing but it was, Phil Rosenthal's food and travel show, Jenna's tour de force as a cat from the South, St. Patrick's...more

  • Jen Kirkman Returns

    Mar 14 2016

    Jen Kirkman returns to Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to talk about all sorts of stuff including her new book which I loved so much I wanted to crawl inside and live there, I Know What I'm Doing And Other Lies I Tell Myself: Dispatches from a Life Under Construction (out April 12th but available for pre-order now), Twitter battles which aren't really battles, Bernie Bros, commonsenseytocin, "lulz," how she used to see herself, the feeling that one's too loud, Mittens, fun coats, how she ch...more

  • Curds, Interventions... and Fish Butts!

    Mar 10 2016

    Superfan Meghan brought us cheese curds from Wisconsin so this episode features a cheese-centric #SnackChat. We also talked about Greg's voice doppelgänger on Intervention, coming home to find your landlord in your apartment unannounced, whether fish have butts, #AL's fear of being wrongly accused, Greg's guitar collection, fake smiles and the photo posing tip Victoria Beckham shared with Greg and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Ci...more

  • Greg Behrendt

    Mar 07 2016

    Comedian and author Greg Behrendt stopped by Dining Room Studios to talk about all sorts of things including the complicated effect being a consultant on Sex and The City had on his life and career and the way he spun out when fans of the book and cultural phenomenon he co-authored, He's Just Not That Into You, began showing up in droves at his comedy shows. Women wanted to hear him do a "TED talk about relationships" but he was there to do standup. We also discussed his decision to host  a dayt...more

  • Ski Trips, Mean Girls and Special Guest Little Esther

    Mar 03 2016

    Little Esther joins us while Greg becomes one with the sea this week for an episode in which we determine the worst age and discuss who was a mean girl and who was tormented by mean girls. We also chatted about Daniel and my recent ski trip, the burden of being God's gift to the slopes, Southern Utah accents, the road trip from hell, tampon strings, super uncomfortable layers, Jeff waking up with a bug up his butt and so much more. Plus we did a round of just me or everyone and talked about this...more

  • Nikki Glaser Returns Again!

    Feb 29 2016

    Nikki Glaser may be the first repeat Monday guest we've had in Dining Room Studios which puts her in an elite group of one, despite that fact that her therapist Donna tries to impress upon her she's just average. The last time Nikki and I talked, she was shooting a talk show pilot about sex for Comedy Central. She's now moved to Los Angeles and is hosting that same show, Not Safe with Nikki Glaser. On this episode we talked about a video she claimed was satisfying but which slightly traumatized ...more

  • Nibbles McGee's Big Adventure

    Feb 25 2016

    You guys, I fell off the carb wagon, and how, so I talked about that in a shameful #SnackChat segment. We also talked about Scotch kisses, butterfly kisses, people who live in glass houses, something called Meat Dip, a stirring open letter to the salsa industry, the mindfuck pulled by The Bachelor's Caila, an upcoming ski trip and so much more. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about a dog named Gwen who is available for adoption.

  • Alex Blagg

    Feb 22 2016

    Alex Blagg is the kind of overachiever who makes you feel as if you aren't doing enough with your life/career, but in a completely charming way. In addition to being the co-creator and executive producer of @midnight, he writes for Workaholics, helms (along with two partners) a successful production company, writes feature scripts and is raising twins. And he doesn't even seem stressed. We talked about what brought him to this point: growing up the son of "cool Jesus" parents, moving around, ren...more

  • Personality Quizzes and Tupperware Angst

    Feb 18 2016

    Before recording this episode we all took the Keirsey Temperament Sorter personality quiz and then revealed our results on air. Then #AL told us what it all means according to David Keirsey's Please Understand Me and what each of our personal hells would look like. It was surprising to learn which members of the gang have the same personality types. We also talked about important matters like people who steal Tupperware. Plus we discussed "No Substitution" policies at restaurants and did a round...more

  • Gustavo Arellano

    Feb 15 2016

    I knew Gustavo way back when I was leaving the OC Weekly and he was starting there. He came out of nowhere it seemed and was suddenly writing a zillion articles a week which, I heard at the time, didn't exactly endear him to the other writers. He went on to gain attention and notoriety with his now nationally syndicated "Ask a Mexican" column, author three books and become the editor-in-chief of the paper. He also regularly appears on radio programs and is a consulting producer on Fox's animated...more

  • Bunk Beds, Chopped Salad and Special Guest Susie Meister

    Feb 11 2016

    We're minus #AL but plus special guest Susie Meister on this episode where we talked about our different interpretations of a common cliche, which is the better bunk bed should one find him or herself needing to bunk, Greg's issue with chopped salads, meeting Janae, Party Girl and other assorted Kim Jones Mosses at Samantha's baby blessing and so much more. We also talked about lady's underwear and #GALCHAT. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

  • Michael Ian Black

    Feb 08 2016

    I've been a fan of actor, writer and comedian Michael Ian Black for years so it was a real treat to have him stop by my podcast during one of his trips to Los Angeles. We talked about his podcast How to Be Amazing and his approach to interviewing before delving into some of the meatier topics explored in his most recent book—which I loved and highly recommend—Navel Gazing: True Tales of Bodies, Mostly Mine (but also my mom's which I know sounds weird). We chatted about growing up in a home fille...more

  • Barnhouses, Broken Noses and the Birth of a New Segment

    Feb 04 2016

    We got to the bottom of what #AL knows on this episode and we also debuted a new segment that Greg can't remember the name of. Plus we debated precious notebooks, talked about the whereabouts of Jenna and Al's baby, discussed the butt stuff that does or does not go on in fraternities and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone. Also: oodles of other stuff!

  • Jake Fogelnest

    Feb 01 2016

    I like to think I was something of a precocious whippersnapper, but writer, director, producer, podcaster, television personality Jake Fogelnest (Wet Hot American Summer, Billy On The Street, Difficult People) has me beat. At age 7 he wanted to be John Waters... and then actually contacted and spoke with John Waters. (I merely wrote a fan letter to animal expert Joan Embery and received a perfunctory written reply.) He went on to host a public access show, Squirt TV, from his bedroom in Manhatta...more

  • Statistics, Probability, Tension and Soup

    Jan 28 2016

    Ok look, this was a weird show. There was tension, embarrassment, statistics and probability (part of our fledgling "What Does #AL Know" segment), egg talk, a discussion of soup, music and whether it's better to have a lot of lights on or very few. Also we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone!

  • Kate Micucci

    Jan 25 2016

    I first met comedian, musician, actress and artist Kate Micucci years ago when she and Riki Lindhome performed live as Garfunkel & Oates at my first live Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend show at UCB. I've wanted to have her on the show solo to really delve into all things Kate ever since. On this episode we talked about the ways in which she's the same as she was as a kid, what she was like as a kid and her close relationship with her parents, crying at school because she missed them, being ...more

  • What Does Al Know???? (And Another Salad Debacle)

    Jan 21 2016

    This episode features the birth of an on-the-fly-off-the-cuff segment entitled, "What does #AL know?" in which we attempt to figure out the titular question and also, how the game works. We also talked about sports and finance which is unusual for us and I detailed yet another salad debacle. Also I just had blood drawn and I think my vein hurts which is neither here nor there and has nothing to do with this episode but just saying, weird arm sensation. And we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone a...more

  • April Richardson

    Jan 18 2016

    Comedian and podcaster April Richardson stopped by, hoarse from singing David Bowie songs at the top of her lungs the night before, to talk about all sorts of stuff including growing up an only child and how she thinks that impacts her relationships today, what she was like as a kid, not getting along with her stepdad or stepbrothers, her relationship with her mom, her relationship with her father who she only met a handful of times, how she felt when she learned her father was dying, forgivenes...more

  • Finicky McPrissy and the 600 Questions

    Jan 14 2016

    If you've ever wished to go to dinner with me, you won't after hearing this episode. Also, we talked about Jenna's ice-pack maxi-pads, things Greg overheard at the Farmer's Market, junkyard kittens, things Greg feels shame and guilt about, my experience on Anna Faris's podcast, Daniel's feelings about food, car washes, the new show intro and more. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and I even took a video during the segment.

  • Susie Meister

    Jan 11 2016

    You might know Susie Meister from her many seasons on MTV, first on Road Rules and then on The Challenge. Or maybe you know her from her podcast Brain Candy which she hosts with fellow MTV'er Sarah Rice, or the one she hosted before that, The Meister Piece. When she first popped up on screens she was known for being super religious (pentecostal) but over the seasons her beliefs changed and now she has a different relationship with religion, along with a PHD in Religious Studies. We talked about ...more

  • Magicians, Hypnosis, Things Placed Inside Alison

    Jan 07 2016

    My God, who names these episodes? Just kidding, it's me, the person who was awake for a harrowing surgical prep and who has maybe changed her mind a little about Versed because it turns out certain kinds of discomfort cut right through the haze and wake you right the fuck up. Also waking me up? The steroids they put in the IV during the last egg retrieval. But this episode isn't only fert alerts, we also learned what everyone did for New Year's Eve. One person's evening involved a magician! Also...more

  • Jay Larson

    Jan 04 2016

    I met Jay Larson back when I was a guest on The CrabFeast and have wanted to have him on my show ever since. It finally happened and I learned all sorts of things about the man like the fact he has about 12 memories of his father, he now auditions for parts where the characters are described as “surprisingly handsome” which has got to be a bit of a kick in the nuts since he was THE SHIT in high school and definitely handsome in a way that was obvious not surprising, he lives life in the moment a...more

  • The New York Odyssey and Our Special Year End Episode

    Dec 31 2015

    Sure you could let Ryan Seacrest count down your New Year's eve but wouldn't you rather do it with us, your new best friends? We did a full on count down with noisemakers that you can sync up to midnight. Did Alison's landlord call in the middle? Oh yes. But surprisingly it wasn't about the noise! Also on this special year end episode I recount Daniel and my New York odyssey which included a lot of vomit and an encounter or two with TSA. Plus we talk about our New Year's resolutions, Greg's text...more

  • Alex Buono and Rhys Thomas

    Dec 28 2015

    Writer, producer, cinematographer Alex Buono (SNL, Documentary Now!, Bigger Stronger Faster) and writer, director, producer Rhys Thomas (SNL, Documentary Now!, Staten Island Summer) head up Saturday Night Live's film unit which means they're responsible for shooting all those funny filmed bits you see on the show. They also handle SNL's opening credits every year—a discovery which led to my learning two of my favorite new terms: "lens whacking" and "pixel sticking."  On this episode we talked ab...more

  • Winter Wonderland Holiday Spectacular!

    Dec 24 2015

    Our Christmas episode doesn't start out very Xmasy if I remember correctly and warning for those who listen around young kids who still believe in Santa: at one point someone blurted out that Santa isn't real. We also talked about Merry Christmas versus Happy Holidays and my strange relationship with Judaism and why it sometimes feels icky when people make a point of saying "Happy Holidays" or rather, why it felt icky growing up. But this one isn't all conflict and outing Santa. We also talk abo...more

  • Bill Schulz

    Dec 20 2015

    Bill Schulz (Red Eye, NY Times) and I go way back to my early-ish days in New York when we both worked for magazines and played on separate competitive skee-ball teams. We forgot to talk about skee-ball but we talked about everything else and I mean EVERYTHING, even when it got a little uncomfortable. Anyway, as I explain on the show, I worked for a magazine and had started appearing regularly on television and thought I was hot shit so when fellow magazine writer Bill told me Maxim UK editor Gr...more

  • The Salmon Incident, Al's a Cat, Elevator Fears

    Dec 17 2015

    Greg and his somewhat productive cough are back which means this episode wastes no time in jumping into the most important topic of the day: Jenna and #AL's avocado tree. Also we talk about Daniel and my upcoming trip, The Salmon Incident, what might be on your phone, superhero comics, what kind of kids we all were and whether we wanted to be older, get rich quick schemes, male vs. female therapists and therapy in general and plane and elevator fears and by the way I am still haunted by the elev...more

  • Zoe Lister-Jones

    Dec 14 2015

    Zoe Lister-Jones (Whitney, Arranged) stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to talk about Consumed, the dramatic indie thriller she and her husband Daryl Wein recently made which is the first narrative film about GMOs—and we did talk about it—but first we had to chat about the period of time she and her husband had an open relationship and the movie they made about that experience called Breaking Upwards. We also talked about the one woman show Zoe did years ago in which...more

  • Adults Who Eat Baby Food (with special guest Mike Carano)

    Dec 10 2015

    Greg was sick for this episode and afraid to spread germs to the newest member of the Thursday gang plus the people who care for her so he sat this one out but sent a very special recorded message which was only rivaled in beauty by length. Sitting in for Greg was someone who is vaguely similar, recent Monday show guest Mike Carano. I say vaguely similar because like Greg, Mike also wonders if Jenna, #AL and Mormons in general judge him. On this episode we also talked about being "natural" paren...more

  • Jack Barakat and Justin Siegel

    Dec 07 2015

    Jack Barakat, lead guitarist for the pop punk band All Time Low and co-host of the Full Frontal Radio podcast was scheduled to be the only guest on this episode so I was surprised when two faces greeted me at the door. "This is my buddy Justin," Jack said as he walked in. "Is it cool if he sits in?" I agreed, since I am an agreeable person, but spent the first many minutes before the mics were on saying, "Wait, who are you and what do you do and what's going on?" It's weird when you've researche...more

  • There Was No Curtain! (But There is a Baby!)

    Dec 03 2015

    Samantha Moss makes her Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend debut on this episode and by that I mean she was sleeping like an angel a few feet from the table while we all cooed and our hearts melted. Before the show Greg met her for the first time and announced, "I like holding babies. Holding babies is a thing I like to do." So if anyone is wondering, that's where Greg stands on baby holding. On this episode we got the low-down from Jenna on labor which involved, among other things, a balloon ...more

  • Dana Gould Returns

    Nov 30 2015

    Dana Gould and I sat down for a very rare, honest and unflinching conversation about his recent breakup and divorce along with his experience adopting three children. We also talked about the genesis of his podcast, his thoughts about gun control and the NRA, Al Anon and the two memories that bookend his marriage. I say "rare, honest and unflinching" because I am under the impression Dana doesn't normally pull the curtain back this far. If he does, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW.  I'm pretty convinced thi...more

  • Happy Thanksgiving from Alison's Nose Whistle

    Nov 26 2015

    Daniel and I just had a hearty debate about whether it's a mistake to reveal whose nose was whistling right in the episode title. I pointed out that we already revealed it on last week's show but then he said it's possible people might have missed that one and he personally enjoyed the way it "revealed itself organically." And now here I am, non-organically shoving the info into the show title. Except what are my options, I ask you? "Happy Thanksgiving from Someone's Nose Whistle?" "Happy Thanks...more

  • Josh Wolf

    Nov 23 2015

    Though I only met comedian and author Josh Wolf (Chelsea Lately, The Josh Wolf Show, Fairly Normal with Josh Wolf podcast) over Twitter a few weeks before we did this episode, I felt like we were fast friends. We chatted about all sorts of stuff including toxic work environments and not wanting to work with assholes, covert assholes, his experience being a young single guy raising three kids, visits from the health department, terrible bangs, how he met his wife and relationships in general, tap...more

  • The Make It Worse Theatre Presents: You Don't Think, Kristin

    Nov 19 2015

    Last week Greg regaled us with stories of his fractious former neighbors. What he didn't say, or maybe he did and I forgot, is that they were so loud he was able to record them from his kitchen. He sent me the audio clip but was hesitant to have us play it on the show because he's a decent person. So I did the only smart thing someone in my position could do: listened to it 900 times in order to transcribe it so we could reenact on the show. Also in this episode, Jenna is still extremely pregnan...more

  • Matt Nathanson Returns

    Nov 16 2015

    Matt Nathanson and I went to college together and as I confess to him early on in this episode, I've come to feel like he and I are on similar journeys in life. It's an incredibly squishy and drippy thing to say and if I read it or overheard it, I'd probably roll my eyes. And yet here I am, coughing it up for you right here and also on the podcast. Back in the day (and also on the tenth episode of my podcast on which he guested) we fought good-naturedly about all sorts of stuff with the exceptio...more

  • Make It Worse, Rob! Make It Worse!

    Nov 12 2015

    On this episode which we recorded one day before Jenna's due date (spoiler alert: she's still pregnant) we talked about cervical ripeness, my buying pre-peeled hard cooked eggs because I'm a "useless sack of shit," how to properly boil eggs at home, mint ice cream and whether it's gross or not (#AL and #ALISON say it is), Greg officiating at his sister's wedding, books vs Kindles, eating dogs and cats, googling upsetting things, massages at barbershops, sunglasses and rudeness and so much more. ...more

  • Mike Carano

    Nov 09 2015

    I suspected I would love talking with Mike Carano (The After Disaster, 5 Minutes with Mike, Miscellaneous Adventures from the World of Mike Carano) and I was right because he's incredibly honest and open about all the stuff that goes through his head. We discussed how he feels uncomfortable all the time, trespassing, decision making, his childhood and his stint in a cult, his relationship with his parents, self-help books, meditation, Dr. Drew, how he met his After Disaster cohorts, being afraid...more

  • Racking Pistols, Ignition Coils, Avocado Trees

    Nov 05 2015

    On Saturday night, Jenna and Al had all of us over to their new place for an extra-curricular hangout. On this episode, Daniel, Greg, Jeff, Jenna, Al and I recounted the festivities complete with Greg's assessment of Jenna and Al's avocado tree, pistol racking, more dirty diet coke talk, spear-fishing, Greg's car troubles, whether women can be creepy or not, Jenna's due date, what truly happens when you give birth, being skeptical of real estate agents, whether we should all move to bumblefuck a...more

  • Josh Gondelman

    Nov 02 2015

    Writer and comedian Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight, Billy on the Street, New Yorker) traveled all the way from New York to be on my podcast and while he was in town he stopped by the Emmys. Or maybe I have that backwards. Regardless, he was in town and we talked about all sorts of stuff including his experience writing on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, You Blew It! An Awkward Look at the Many Ways In Which You've Already Ruined Your Life (his new book with Joe Berkowitz), discovering com...more

  • A Romantic Halloween Spooktacular!

    Oct 29 2015

    This was supposed to be our spooky Halloween-themed episode and it started that way, with horrifying talk of my new obsession with Dirty Diet Cokes and some riveting Gal Chat regarding nails but then talk turned to Greg's unanswered questions about how I met Daniel and then how Greg met his wife and how Al first described Jenna to his parents and it became a very romantic Halloween show.  But then we Halloween'd it up again with a shocking revelation about Almond Joy and Mounds, agent dating, je...more

  • Michael Showalter Returns

    Oct 26 2015

    Michael Showalter and I go way back to 2006-ish when I did a series of interviews for Time Out New York/PS1 Radio (they were very early podcasts, actually) and he was the first person I interviewed. Over the years I've interviewed him many more times and I always love talking with him, probably because I'm such a huge fan of his work from The State to Wet Hot American Summer to Stella and now Neftlix's Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp (not to mention The Baxter and Mr. Funny Pants and a...more

  • Dirty Diet Coke, Bonus Fruits and Mormon Funeral Potatoes

    Oct 22 2015

    I included Dirty Diet Coke in this episode title because ever since Jenna talked about it on the show, I can't stop thinking about it.
