85 - A Little Bit of Vomit in Every Kiss with Jason Mantzoukas
How excited are we that summer is officially here? We can't wait to get to the Vineyard and sip Negronnas all season long. Unfortunately the Lobsterman won't be joining us, as (Bryan) and he have officially ended things, but you know who might join us in his place? This week's guest, the legendary Jason Mantzoukas! You know him from BIG MOUTH, PARKS AND REC, THE GOOD PLACE, and much, much more. He can be seen now in a new movie with Mark Wahlberg, excuse me, called INFINITE on Paramount + AND a new animated series on FOX called HOUSEBROKEN with Lisa Kudrow. Jason joins us to give advice on how to break it to your perfumier friend that their product stinks, what to do when you hate your daughter's fiance, and dating with an age gap.
The Negronna is coming! You'll be able to order an absolutely gorgeous bottle of this perfect summer cocktail starting June 18th at negronna.com. It's the closest thing you'll ever get to Ronna mixing you one personally. Don't miss out!
84 - The First Gay Person Ever with Caleb Hearon
Now wait a minute. Are we excited or are we excited? Not only do we have a great show and an amazing guest, but we have an announcement so thrilling we can't even contain ourselves. After a quick conversation about the magic of Salonpas™️, we welcome to The Carriage House the absolutely fabulous Caleb Hearon! You know Caleb from his incredible Twitter and IG videos (Variety included him on its "10 Comics to Watch in 2020" list, excuse me) and as a writer for the upcoming BIG MOUTH spin-off, HUMAN RESOURCES. Caleb helps us give advice on Facebook invites, how to talk about addiction recovery, and being a boy from the big city in love with a small town guy.
So what's this big announcement we have? Joe Biden might call it a "big f*cking deal" if he were still allowed to swear. After months in the lab, we're SO thrilled to reveal the closest thing you'll ever get to a Negroni personally made for you by Ronna herself: it's the Negronna! In partnership with St. Agrestis in Brooklyn, we've come up with a perfectly mixed, boozey, bitter, and refreshing high-end cocktail that'll help you come out of quarantine in style. And with the absolute showstopper of a bottle it comes in, you'll be the life of any party you bring it to. We'll be drinking this in The Carriage House and on the Vineyard all summer, we can assure you! It's available for purchase on June 18th at Negronna.com, and will arrive just in time for the height of summer BBQ season. Stay tuned!
83 - Strong Female Leads with Lucia Aniello
We have got an absolutely FABULOUS show this week, even if Dante might be trying to sabotage it. After some mind-blowing Hollywood gossip (Ronna is gobsmacked to learn that Tyne and Tim Daly are siblings), we welcome to The Carriage House director, writer, and producer extraordinaire Lucia Aniello! You know her from her work on Comedy Central's BROAD CITY, the movie ROUGH NIGHT, and as the creator of our favorite show on TV right now, HACKS on HBO Max. Lucia helps us give advice on some major bridesmaid drama, cultivating style in your late 30s, and dealing with a particularly frustrating unrequited love.

82 - Kentucky Waterfall with the Doughboys
You'll have to pardon us as we start off this week with a minor crisis. (Bryan) is over-caffeinated it seems, but not even a triple shot of espresso can make us lose sight of what an absolutely spectacular time we're about to have in The Carriage House. We're so happy to welcome the hosts of the delightful DOUGHBOYS podcast, Nick Wiger and Mike Mitchell! If you're a fan of podcasts and you're not a fan of these guys, you don't know what you're doing. Nick and Mike are here to help us give advice on dealing with a boyfriend with a mullet, telling a good friend you're not interested in going to their bachelorette party, and asking for a raise at work.
Don't forget about our Coffee Klatch coming up on June 11th! It'll be a live event just for our subscribers as a little "thank you" for all your support. Not a subscriber? What are you waiting for! You'll save $3 a bag with free shipping and you can cancel at any time.
81 - Mental Health Day
So...we had an epiphany this week. We felt we needed to get back to basics, and for Ronna (& Bryan) to spend some quality time together on the Free Feed, just the two of them. It's time for a Mental Health Day...an intimate Carriage House Catch-Up to reconnect and refresh. And we've got a catch-up for the ages! Chunky smoothies, slutty summers, Sherman, Zabar's rats, and more. Plus we give advice on mending a rocky relationship between bandmates, a delicate surrogacy issue between friends, and what to do after a shocking (and highly disturbing) discovery about an ex.
Attention Ask Ronna Coffee subscribers. We're coming up on the ONE YEAR anniversary of Ask Ronna Coffee. Can you believe it? We're so excited to be able to provide a truly phenomenal coffee product, and we couldn't have done it without you. As a special thank you to our subscribers, we'll be inviting you to an EXCLUSIVE free live event on June 11th. Ronna (& Bryan) will both be there, and it'll be like having a fabulous cup of coffee right in Ronna's kitchen. You won't want to miss it!

80 - Blurt Laughing with Jamie Loftus
There is so much happening in the world right now, but we're DYING to know more about Bill and Melinda Gates' divorce. Who is this former lover that Bill has been spending time with in the Outer Banks? How long has this arrangement been going on? How will it affect their foundation's charitable giving? Enquiring minds! Needless to say, we're giving you a lot to put into your earhole w**k bank this week (not our expression, excuse me). And if that weren't enough, we're also delighted to welcome to The Carriage House writer, comedian, and podcast host Jamie Loftus! You know Jamie from her podcast THE BECHDEL CAST and as an Emmy nominated writer for ROBOT CHICKEN, plus her hilarious presence on Twitter! Jamie is here to help us give advice on planning a wedding from two very different perspectives, coping with living alone after a break-up, and a birthday drama brewing in Cabo.
