Description

A twice weekly podcast hosted by award-winning interviewer and everyone's new best friend Alison Rosen. Mondays are one-on-ones featuring surprisingly honest conversations that are equal parts silly, serious and revelatory. Thursdays are roundtable group shows. You will laugh, think, and feel less alone. (Unless you don't feel alone at all in which case, congrats! You've done it!)

Episode Date
Daniel and Alison (Jason from the Bank and Open Letters)
01:26:49

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!

Jackie's Horse Thoughts, Alison's Trolling, A Ken Reid Quiz
01:28:33

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.

I've decided to spend some of this lockdown time catching up with the cast of character who were regulars on the show when it was a live streaming internet show that I did from my apartment in Brooklyn in 2010.

I also chat with him about where life has taken him in these ten years, fatherhood, how to make good radio (he's a producer and host), his brother Bill Schulz and so much more.

Mary Katharine Ham Finds Love Again
01:25:37

Four years ago political pundit Mary Katharine Ham's personal tragedy was all over the news when her husband Jake Brewer died suddenly in a cycling accident. Theirs had been a picture perfect romance that read like a movie‚ÄĒhe was former Obama staffer, she was a conservative columnist and pundit appearing regularly on Fox News (she's now employed by CNN). They had one daughter and she was seven months pregnant with their second daughter at the time of the accident. As Mary Katharine recounts here, she figured she'd probably not date again, at least not for awhile. And then a couple years later she found herself opening her heart again to a mysterious man who has no social media presence but actually exists (I met him myself). We recorded this episode the night following her surprise engagement. We also talk about masculinity, sexual harassment, hoarding, anxiety, the LadyBrains podcast, being a decisive person and so much more.

Jordan Morris doesn't frost his tips but you'd certainly be forgiven for thinking so. You might not be forgiven for asking him though, which starts a conversation about men and shame around primping. Daniel discusses his desire, at one point, to get more tattoos, and Tony is angry at other people who have beards. I was here too but I forget what I said. Probably something funny, relevant and important. Lemme check the notes. Oh yes! We also talked about religion, the pressure to be religious in our hometowns with the exception of Daniel, and Daniel and my new neighbors who are very intriguing. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and had some hot 'sups.

Kathryn Burns No Longer Keeps Her Emmy in the Bathroom

In addition to her work on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend she's worked on Key & Peele, Workaholics, Another Period, Garfunkel & Oates, Wet Hot American Summer, Better Things, Jimmy Kimmel, Comedy Bang Bang and more. She's a go-to comedy choreographer but she's also worked with Carly Rae Jepsen and Pharrell. She's the first choreographer I've had on the show and I was fascinated to learn how it all works and also that there's no union that represents TV and film choreographers. We also talked about her path, UCB, nursing, body image, her family, serendipity and so much more. Plus we took questions from listeners and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

James Gunn (orig. aired 3/25/12)
01:35:38

I really like James Gunn‚ÄĒI disagree with his firing‚ÄĒand I wanted to replay one of the episodes he's been on. Decided to go all the way back to the near-beginning of this show.

He also appeared in 2015 and talked a lot about Guardians of the Galaxy. What follows is the original show description:

On this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, director/writer/actor/cat rescuer James Gunn (Super, Slither) stops by to chat about relationships, unhealthy relationships, his former marriage to Jenna Fischer, being superstitious, PG Porn and other career masterpieces and simple ways to make yourself happy. We take some calls including one from a 15 year old who wants to know whether to tell his best friend he has a crush on her.

Jeff's Homemade Cheez-Its recipe:

8 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 tsp kosher salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp mustard powder

1 tsp garlic powder

2 to 3 tbsp ice water

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a bread machine on dough setting, mix the cheese, butter, and salt on low speed until combined.

Combine the flour, mustard and garlic powder. Add to the mix on low until pebbly.

Slowly add 2 tablespoons of cold water and mix as the dough forms a ball. If needed, add the additional tablespoon of water a little at a time until the dough forms.

Pat the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Divide the dough into two pieces and roll each into a very thin 10√ó12-inch rectangle (the dough should be no more than ‚Öõ-inch high).

Using a fluted pastry wheel or a pizza cutter, cut the rectangles into 1-inch squares, then transfer them to the baking sheets.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until puffed and browning at the edges.

Immediately move the crackers to wire racks to cool completely, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
