    Alison's Mortifying Emails, Life After Late Night, Two Toilet Rich

    Alison's Mortifying Emails, Life After Late Night, Two Toilet Rich

    Josh Gondelman is here and he's still plagued by this pernicious cocaine rumor. Daniel Quantz isn't helping matters. Also joining us is Miles Kahn who used to work at The Daily Show and then Samantha Bee and not only is he the person responsible for bringing Jenna Kim Jones to the show but also he once cut my hair on air and went on a couple casual dates with me years ago. We dig into our sordid history including a reading of some emails and it's extremely mortifying. Miles comes off fine. Plus Big Al, being rich enough to have two toilets, talking yourself into going to an event only to regret the effort, intellectual property, landlords, and more.

    Anthony Bowens

    Anthony Bowens is one half of the hugely popular wrestling tag team The Acclaimed and he's also AEW's first openly gay world champion. Additionally he's an actor and model who has a steadily climbing YouTube channel, Michael & Anthony, with his boyfriend Michael Pavano. He stopped by the show to talk about National Scissoring Day, protecting his voice, going from playing baseball in college to wrestling, working with Max Castor, turning down an offer from WWE to join AEW, auditioning for AEW, coming out, meeting his boyfriend, catchphrases, birthmarks, his relationship with his parents, breakfast, intermittent fasting, collecting toys, Power Rangers, traveling and more. We also answered your questions and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and HGFY.

    Stuffed Stockings, Waiting Tables, Shiny Wrestlers

    Are your Xmas stockings filled with nail clippers and lottery tickets or unshelled walnuts and oranges? Apparently these are the only options unless you're in Canada—where RJ City may or may not live—where stockings are filled with feet because it snows. Also, do you think cavemen got manicures? Robin Shorr, fresh from nearly joining a cult, regales us with a story of choosing the wrong sketch to share with a writer's room and Daniel and I are worried our son has chosen darkness. Plus tales of waiting tables, working an omelette bar, one way flirting, breaking up fights, communication conspiracy theories and I ask the question on everyone's mind: why are wrestlers so shiny?

    Daniel and Alison (Your Calls and Bread Pudding Postmortem!)

    Daniel and Alison (Your Calls and Bread Pudding Postmortem!)

    Daniel and I have gotten together one day after Thanksgiving and we're doing something we don't normally do: attempting to record ourselves on video too. It's all very fancy. We listen to your calls and recount Daniel's big push into bread pudding. Plus Elliot's somewhat alarming gratitude list offering, siblings who are extremely honest, a discourse discord, TGIBF and more.

ALLLISON

Loved Alison when she was on Carolla's podcast. She’s way funnier than Gina Jewtits.

Bitter coffee (tastes good with lots of cream and Splenda)

I started listening to Alison on her other podcast with Greg Fitzsimmons and I found her voice grating and annoying at first. But after listening to Childish for a few months, I found that she’s like bitter coffee. Her creamy sweet guests (Wendy Molyneux, David Huntsberger, Betsy Sodaro, etc), are the perfect compliment and she becomes soooo addictive! Before I knew it I was downloading all 3 of her podcasts and listening almost daily! So give it a try, and listen to more than a few episodes. It takes a while for her to grow on you but it is worth the wait! Alison is extremely witty, humble, vulnerable and so honest and willing to share — qualities that I wish for in every best friend.

Alison is great and likable, but..

I wish she hadn’t adopted the “Adam Carolla ranting persona” some time ago. It doesn’t work on a woman. The “blow hard” schtick. It gets exhausting pretty quickly. Makes for quantity over quality content. Anyway. Enjoy
