91 - Sourdough Housewife with Megan Gailey
I mean, have we got a great show this week or have we got a great show this week? We can assure you it exceeds our wildest "exceptations." After some serious Judge Judy talk and reminiscing about Jerry Hall, we welcome comedian and podcast host Megan Gailey to The Carriage House! You know her from her countless appearances on Comedy Central and the late night shows as well as host of the podcast I LOVE A LIFETIME MOVIE with friend of the show (and (Bryan)'s mortal enemy) Naomi Ekperigin. Megan joins us to give advice on being caught in the middle of two good friends' divorce, how not to be a complete mess, and how to get your man to stop mansplaining.
This week's giveaway is a bottle of the summer's hottest drink...the Negronna! For a true Negronna Summer, get yours today at negronna.com. Remember that tax and shipping are included on all domestic orders, and, if you order the 2-pack, you'll get a fabulous Negronna tote!
Of course, if the winner of the giveaway ends up being a teetotaler, we have just the thing: the coldest, most refreshing coffee around...Ask Ronna Coffee! It's the perfect iced refreshment for those hot summer afternoons. Get it at askronnacoffee.com
90 - Classic Cliffhangers: Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness
We absolutely love giving our Free Feed listeners a little taste of what they're missing in The Carriage House over on Patreon every now and then (though we hesitate to use the word "taste" this week, as you'll see). It's time for another edition of Classic Cliffhangers! For this illustrious volume, we're bringing you some of our dirtiest cliffhangers, and we mean that quite literally. First up is one of the most outrageous cliffhangers we've ever had (the story of a polyamorous hook-up gone awry). Then it's on to a very delicate question on personal hygiene, a new lover who doesn't seem to have any clean clothes, and the story of a Grindr flirtation that goes in a very unexpected direction.
The drinks of the summer continue to be the Negronna and iced Ask Ronna Coffee. What can we say, we've got your summer beverages covered any which way you want them. Remember that tax and shipping are included on all domestic orders at negronna.com and, at askronnacoffee.com, you can subscribe and save. It's a Ronna (& Bryan) kind of summer, pardon me!
The Free Feed gets to at least hear the cliffhanger questions, if not the answers (unless we include them in a Classic Cliffhangers). But thanks to a mistake from Tony this week (who's on thin ice, excuse me), you get to hear both a question and answer that was never meant to be on the Free Feed! Of course, if you became a CHIP and joined us on Patreon, you'd have access to each and every minute of our valuable advice any time you wanted. Visit patreon.com/askronna and join us for bonus episodes every Friday.
By the way, as an added bonus, you can watch video of this entire episode on our YouTube channel at youtube.com/askronna
89 - We Make Fantasies Come True with Justin Kirk
We have a VERY special episode today as we welcome one of our oldest and dearest friends to The Carriage House. He may even expect us to roll out the red carpet, Hollywood star that he is, as this is, technically, his THIRD appearance on Ask Ronna, excuse me. Get ready for the always fabulous Justin Kirk! You know him from WEEDS, ANGELS IN AMERICA, KIDDING, PERRY MASON, and about a million other things. Justin joins us to give advice on what to do when a friend makes inappropriate advances on your boyfriend, financial incompatibility, and leaving a family group chat without offending anyone.
It's a Negronna Summer, and you can't properly enjoy it without your very own bottle (or two). It's the closest thing you'll ever get to a real Negronna outside of Italy, and tax and shipping are included on all domestic orders. And remember that if you buy the 2-pack you'll get your very own Negronna Summer tote to show off your amazing taste in cocktails! negronna.com
This week's giveaway is a gift pack of Ask Ronna Coffee, which, served over ice, makes for a perfect summer treat. Whether it's Carriage House Blend or Shades of Vanilla, get yours at askronnacoffee.com
88 - A Dog in the Bed Is Better Than a Condom on the Foot with Roger Bennett
Summer is officially in full swing. Ronna's 4th of July gala was as good as it's ever been (despite (Bryan) flirting with every man there) and we're sipping Negronnas poolside daily. Life is good! What could make it better? Maybe inviting into The Carriage House our dear friend, and one of the most prominent soccer broadcasters in the US, pardon me, Roger Bennett! You know Roger from his massively successful podcast and NBCSN television show MEN IN BLAZERS as well as his new (and deeply heartfelt) memoir (RE)BORN IN THE USA. Roger joins us to give advice on a roommate overstepping her boundaries, a 44 year old friendship on the rocks, and a new beau who lets his dog sleep in the bed. Roger is a mischief maker, so he (& Bryan) get along famously!
By the way, Roger's book, (RE)BORN IN THE USA, is available at bookshop.org/shop/askronna and https://amzn.to/3Atp3C2
The guests at Ronna's 4th of July gala couldn't have been more impressed with her bottles of Negronna. If you want to bring the same level of taste and luxury to your next summer gathering, order yours today! Remember that tax and shipping are included in the US, and, if you order the 2-pack, you'll get an absolutely fabulous Negronna Summer tote. Visit negronna.com now!
And of course you can still get some Carriage House Blend or Shades of Vanilla (or both, who are we kidding) at askronnacoffee.com to nurse those hangovers after an evening of Negronnas.
87 - A Big Day for F.U.'s with Raiza Licea
OK, Ronner...today's show is filled to the brim with energy and follow-ups, or "F.U.'s" as (Bryan) calls them. In fact, we have so much to get to that we barely have time to chat about all the incredibly exciting things happening in The Carriage House this month (the Negronna launch, our Instagram Live last week, the gorgeous Pride stickers coming with the coffee, etc). So without further ado, we're so happy to welcome actor, comedian, writer, and podcaster Raiza Licea to The Carriage House! You know her as one of the hosts of the podcast SPANISH AQUÍ PRESENTS and her appearance this season on our favorite show HACKS. Raiza joins us to give advice on moving to Miami, some pet drama involving an ex, and dealing with a partner who's sensitive about his birthday.
Negronnas continue to fly off the shelves, as those of you who caught our Instagram Live on Friday are well aware. Bright, boozey, delicious...it's the drink of the summer. And it's shipping NOW! Get yours while supplies last, and remember that tax and shipping are included in all US orders. Exclusively at NEGRONNA.COM
Are you a teetotaler? Or are you perhaps looking for the perfect companion to the Negronna? Either way, you can't go wrong with Ask Ronna Coffee! Whether it's Carriage House Blend or Shades of Vanilla (or both), you're going to get an absolutely delicious cup of coffee, excuse me. askronnacoffee.com
86 - (Bryan) and The Whale
Here we are, just the two of us! It's another back-to-basics Carriage House Catch-Up this week, and not a moment too soon. (Bryan)'s in a mood (you'll never guess who the Lobsterman left him for...), but luckily Ronna's here to lift his spirits! After some great follow-ups (we don't know exactly what a Norwegian Forest Cat is, but it sounds scary) we give some advice on being friends with someone who reveals everyone else's deepest, darkest secrets, what to do when you're in love with your mailman, and a wedding gift drama that might not turn out the way you think.
The drink of the summer is ready to pre-order! We can't stress enough how refreshing and delicious the Negronna is, and with a bottle that was made to impress, you'll want to bring it to all your summer get-togethers. Pre-order it now and it begins shipping at the end of this week. Visit negronna.com or the link in our bio for details!
My love for these two only matches my hatred for Andrew Lloyd Webber!
Love these two. Thank you so much
Surprised how much I like this show
Honestly, I went into this show with low expectations. I was desperate for more content and algorithms were constantly recommending it to me. I was wrong, the math was right. Both hosts are hilarious. They also bring the best out of their guests. It is now one of my favourite podcasts. And I bought myself an egg boiler. Happy days.
