Wendy's Cleansing, David's Trip, Alison's Roast of Tony

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

I swear I was not intending to roast Tony more than once although that's kind of what I did. Wendy is here and she has a new cleansing routine which we almost talk about repeatedly. David has returned from his South Dakota sojourn. Alison is having a social and professional conundrum. Plus Save the Bell, dealing with hecklers, who merits their own wikipedia page and more.
