    Jamie Loftus

    Comic, writer, podcast host and artist Jamie Loftus (My Year in Mensa, Lolita Podcast, Aack Cast, Bechdel Cast) joins us to talk about how stunt journalism led to finding her niche as a podcaster, the decision to switch from writing about her experience as a "dumb slut" who infiltrated Mensa to releasing it as a show, making the Lolita Podcast during the pandemic, wanting to do something lighter for her next project which was Aack Cast where she reconsiders Cathy comics, feminism, scoliosis, eating dog food, butt chugging milk, Dunkin Donuts specialty items, Judy Blume's Deenie, hot dogs and so much more. We also took your questions.

    Jenna and Al's Budget, Jeff's Court Case, Daniel's Tear Ducts

    Jenna Kim Jones and #AL are here and Jenna is due in 3.5 weeks! Jeff Fox is here, but disguised, and he's still riding high from his labor intensive but successful court victory. Daniel is fresh from the eye doctor and they put plugs in his tear ducts. It makes me want to barf. Tony relates to Daniel's duct struggle. Also, we do a drop-off with Betsy Sodaro and Greg Heller drops. I want to know if everyone has a budget and how detailed it should be. Plus Just Me Or Everyone and so much more.

comfort podcast

I’ve been a listener for almost 5 years now, recently I lost one of my best friends to suicide. laughing and doing anything is the hardest thing in the world right now but when I turn on this podcast there’s an instant feeling of comfort and I actually laughed for the first time in weeks. It’s genuinely helping me take my mind off of it and has been the most comforting experience it’s like i’m with a best friend. much love alison and gang.

Minus 2 for Amz

Alison’s show is super entertaining and a source of comfort during these times. However, the recent addition of “shop my Amazon store” at the end of every episode leaves such a sour taste. Amazon is the most horrible and evil corporation really to ever exist, at least in my lifetime. It really doesn’t fit with the views Alison and Daniel have shared on the show (especially during the election). If you want the world to be better for your children, start with your own shopping habits and have more integrity with your revenue streams.

Hope Halper ,

The best podcast!

This is my favorite podcast! Super great and funny segments. Great music for segments! I have been an active listener for about 5 years. I love Alison and love each of the the Thursday show members. She’s cultivated quite a hilarious crew of amazing regulars who constantly make me laugh. Her husband Daniel is a hoot! I love that even when it’s people who have never met before everyone seems so at ease and laughing. I think Alison is one of the best interviewers ever. In my opinion her questions are probing yet thoughtful so they don’t seem rude. You can tell she says what’s on her mind but still manages to frame it in a way that makes it sound not robotic or gossipy.listening is like palling around with my friends. I super appreciated her keeping it so real during lockdown I think as a listener the authenticity helped me not feel alone. I do hope she will continue to do occasional zoom I
shows with former Thursday show members JKJ and thehashtagAL and chef Jeff!

Keep the great stuff coming Alison.
