Alison Messes Up, Tony Needs a Name, David Does True Crime

Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

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?"

Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

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. Alison messed up a scheduling thing earlier in the day and feels out of sorts given this is the kind of thing she's usually good at and about which she rides Daniel. How does everyone remember stuff? 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. Check us out on Patreon: http://patreon.com/alisonrosen   Buy Alison's Book: Tropical Attire Encouraged (and Other Phrases That Scare Me) You probably need to buy a new ARIYNBF Legacy Shirt! and the HGFY ringtone!
