    Alison's Shower Superstition, Jordan's Bread Bomb, Carlye's Kim K Meeting

    Alison's Shower Superstition, Jordan's Bread Bomb, Carlye's Kim K Meeting

    Theme Park journalist Carlye Wisel joins us for the first time and she wants to know why, if Jordan Morris is only eating two slices of bread a week, he isn't choosing what she dubs "event bread." It's a good question but the heart wants what it wants and Jordan wants Dave's Killer Bread. F**k you, Ezekial. Alison is off her game for the second week straight. Could it be because she ran afoul of her shower superstition? Also, which is better, Disneyland or Disneyworld? And what was the last thing we all did before lockdown? Plus Caryle saw Kim Kardashian up close and it wasn't what we expected.

    Ben Sheehan

    Ben Sheehan is the author of OMG WTF Does the Constitution Actually Say? A Non-Boring Guide to How Our Democracy is Supposed to Work. His premise is simple: the constitution is the user manual for how our government is supposed to run—and it's a government for the people by the people meaning we're the ones who are supposed to be operating it—and yet most of us don't even know what's in this document. He’s a former producer for Funny Or Die, the Hollywood Reporter named him one of entertainment's 35 Rising Executives Under 35 and perhaps most importantly to listeners of this show, he’s engaged to be married to frequent guest Jackie Johnson. We talked about his childhood in DC and Bethesda, MD, his relationship with his brother, civics versus history, hustling, comedy, music, whether Trump can steal the election and so much more. Plus we took your questions. Full video available on http://youtube.com/alisonrosen

    Alison's Slip of the Tongue, Tony's Torrential Typing, Dustin's Itch Cream

    Alison makes a mistake at the top of the show which is nothing compared to the one she made while reading a bedtime story to Elliot. Jackie Johnson has some theories and Dustin Goot is here to commiserate. Also, Jackie is fond of a certain filter that's ruining society, house hunting, leafblowers versus podcasters, accents, Tony's torrential typing, a round of Yes Please or Oh Puhleeze and more!

Love Alison Rosen (and Daniel)

I've listened to ARIYNBF since 2016 and she never disappoints. Bringing in her politically woke husband Daniel is the cherry on top. Listening to them during scary times has been a balm to frayed nerves. They're like a baseline for normalcy while riding out one of the gnarliest bad patches in history. If we weren't quarantined, I'd have Alison & Daniel at my dinner table. They're the best.

Real Conversations That Entertain

Alison’s husband, Daniel, appears to be trying to get kicked off the podcast or out of the marriage with the comments he makes. For our sakes he must remain in both. He is funny and interesting. He is also a hero to men in that he can tease his wife and get away with it. Perhaps it is just the audience, but she’ll even laugh. Anyone can have a podcast, not everyone can record husband jokes without, You think you're funny, but you're not.

Alison interviews are bold without being aggressive and is able to interject her own experiences into the conversation without putting too much attention on herself.
