    Jackie Johnson's Wedding Dilemma, Helen Hong's Prank Calls, A Passive-Aggressive Candle!

    Helen Hong is back and her fingers are itching to dial some numbers! Also, she recently lost her sweet dog in the mountains for hours and it was scary! Plus there's a mouse in her house and it might be a Penelope or it might be a Belinda or it might be gender neutral. Jackie Johnson is here and she's in the midst of a tough decision. Tougher even than discerning the mouse's name! Also she's appropriately misted and scented for the occasion and we try to guess the notes in her favorite candle. I might have stumbled upon a great dream tweet and Daniel nearly killed me while singing a song from Frozen 2. And we remember Neil Mahoney.

    Michael Buckley

    Michael Buckley experienced tremendous popularity and success in the early days of Youtube with his pop culture and celebrity show What the Buck. He was raking in millions of views and also millions of dollars. He left the world of content creation behind though and is now living in Denver and working as a life coach, although he's the first to poke fun at the label "life coach." We talked about what went into his decision, whether he sabotaged his career and his 13 year marriage, quitting drinking, mantras, post its, dogs, cancel culture, validation, weighted blankets, pansexuality and more. Plus Just Me Or Everyone! Full video at youtube.com/alisonrosen

    Jeff Fox's Fancy Suit, Jenna and Al's Air Fryer Mishaps, Greg's Fish Eggs

    The old gang is back together! Jeff Fox has dressed up for the occasion! Jenna and Al are here and they're still in love with their RV. Also, their air fryer. Have you ever had THE PERFECT TATER TOT? I haven't but I do have a new bidet and a lot to say about it. I'm also wondering how to handle a dirty no good liar who happens to be three. And I have some questions about Real Housewives of SLC! Tony's dismantled his holiday mantle and has lithe thighs that don't touch the bidet control box. Jeff has complicated feelings about Masked Singer promos and Greg Heller drops by to say hi.

    Paul Rust's Big Secret, Michael Cassady's Strip Club Story, Alison's Sidebar Sister's Salad Bar

    It's the last episode of 2020 and we're going out with a bang! Paul Rust (Don't Stop Or We'll Die, Love, The Great North) is here and he's royalty. Michael Cassady, his bandmate in Don't Stop Or We'll Die and cohost of the new Song-a-Week podcast is here to bring a touch of class. Everyone apparently looooooooved high school except me but that's fine because I'm busy making Tony find bubbling sound effects for our new segment. Also, will we be featured in 50 Under 50? Plus HGFY! Happy New Year!

    Alison's Petty, Cranky, Wordy Mood and Your Calls! (Plus a look back!)

    Alison's Petty, Cranky, Wordy Mood and Your Calls! (Plus a look back!)

    This episode was supposed to include Daniel AND an installment of Daniel's Kewl Beanz but things went sideways so instead you're just getting me and my cranky mood plus some wonderfully honest listener calls. It's a high pressure situation! I am still ruminating over this nanny situation and also I think I had a breakthrough regarding the recurring dream discussed last week. Daniel and I are both overly affected by the moods of everyone around us and I'm still processing this year. I bet you are too. I take a look back at the craziness that was 2020 and give a little glimpse of some guests coming up in 2021. Thank you all for being a bright spot this year!

Hanging with the girls

I have been listening to the show for several years and love it so much. Today’s episode with Jackie Johnson and Helen Hong - I laughed, I cried, I felt like I was hanging out with my girlfriends when someone was going through a tough time and not a podcast. Love this show and will never stop listening.

Glad I didn't subscribe! ,

Daniel

This one was too hard to listen to..I wanted him to stop talking
