Description

A twice weekly podcast hosted by veteran interviewer and everyone's new best friend, Alison Rosen, featuring surprisingly honest conversations that are equal parts silly, serious, revelatory and sometimes involving a sombrero. Plus an eternal quest to find out if that thing you think or do is normal in a segment called "Just Me or Everyone?"

Jordan's Tips, Daniel's Tattoos, Alison's New Neighbors
01:30:33

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.

01:25:29

Have we landed on a nickname? MAYBE. Also Daniel's doodling leads to a conversation about his alter ego and his secret work life which leads back to nicknames.

01:28:05

It's Tony Thaxton's first official show as producer and we need a nickname for him. As Daniel points out, we also need to name the new studio.

David has a system! Also we talk dysfunctional or less-than-functional relationships, Tony's trip to Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland, Renee and Brene, and so much more including iTunes Comments of the Week.

Jeff's Non-Punk Rock Jobs, Getting Older, SSRIs
01:19:19

This show marks the return of our signature segment (note: not our signature segment) and an update on who won the Saskatoon berry by saying Saskatchewan most authentically. I had a birthday so age is on my mind. Also, I forgot to take a pill and felt like a bean bag. Why is that? Turns out Jeff knows and his info is courtesy of a very non-punk rock job he once had but not as non-punk rock as another job he had cleaning up poop at an animal research lab. And so much more!

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.

Alison has two to three bits of personal news to share, some of which Daniel doesn't even know yet. But first, David shares the important role potato salad played in his life and talks about the experience of  being filmed for the documentary Tig and Last Comic Standing. Then a heated round of our "signature" segment that we don't know the name of, "Yes Puh-leeze, Oh Puh-leeze or Bitch Please?" breaks out regarding milk versus dark chocolate. Tempers flare! Then we determine the best email sign off which gives Alison a new lease on life, discuss grudges and Alison divulges the weird way she takes pills. Plus a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Tiffany Haddish (orig air date 4/24/16)
01:31:57

Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays! Hope you enjoy this replay of my Tiffany Haddish episode with a brand new beginning. Come see me at Sketch Fest!  And buy Tiffany's book!

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 particulars that make her story so powerful. And yet throughout, she’s joking and positive. In addition, we talked about the importance of trusting your first mind, when she was misquoted by TMZ, auditioning for SNL, the help she received from Kevin Hart, arguing with Dane Cook, Six Flags abortions, eating rat meat, peach jello, audition makeup and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.
