79 - The Wet Lip with Alaska Thunderf*ck
It's a good thing we've purveyors of some of the best coffee around, pardon me, because we'll need a few cups to deal with our spectacular and vivacious guest this week! After a little conversation about honeycrisp apples and a trip through (Bryan)'s laundry, we welcome to The Carriage House none other than drag performer, recording artist, and winner of the second season of "Drag Race All-Stars" Alaska Thunderf*ck! Catch her all new show "Extra Special Comedy Special" on Apple TV and OUTtv now! Alaska joins us to give advice on the difficulties of being married to an overly protective germaphobe during the pandemic, being in a relationship where a partner is hesitant to introduce the other to their family, and hair removal suggestions for a woman who suffers from PCOS.

78 - Just Add Water with Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
Now, wait a minute. This is it. The time has arrived. One of our most eagerly anticipated guests we've ever had in The Carriage House. Joining us this week is none other than "instant" New York Times Bestseller (just add water) Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney! Her second book, GOOD COMPANY, is out now, and it's a must-read smash hit. Cynthia is eager to make her Free Feed debut, and she doesn't disappoint when she helps us give advice on dealing with a very strained family relationship, the pitfalls of young (and fickle) love, and an intergenerational dog drama.
GOOD COMPANY is officially a New York Times Bestseller, and you can own it today! We can't recommend it enough. Get a copy here & support the show! https://bookshop.org/shop/askronna
It's raw ramen time! We've reached the ramen threshold, and Ronna's going to have to chomp on some raw noodles. Keep an eye out for what promises to be a, shall we say, intense video experience.
There's never been a better time to join us on Patreon. Case in point: we posted our Oscar Wrap-Up show yesterday where we give our two cents on what was certainly a "unique" ceremony, to put it mildly. We have a LOT to say about it, and it's available ONLY on Patreon.
77 - Blew It Out of the Waterpark with Greta Titelman
Now, wait a minute. We may be exhausted from this past weekend (Ronna's tootsies are still hurting) but it's only because we hit it out of the waterpark with our Oscars Preview Party Live Show (if you'll pardon (Bryan)'s mixed metaphor). Thank you all for coming! It was a BLAST, but we're not done entertaining you this week. We're beyond excited to welcome to The Carriage House comedian, actress, and writer Greta Titelman! You know Greta from her podcast THE WORST as well as from HBO's quirky hit series LOS ESPOOKYS. Greta helps us give advice on a very troubling situation with a friend's husband, dealing with sexual compatibility in a new relationship, and the mail forwarding drama to end all mail forwarding dramas.
Thanks again to all of you who joined us in The Carriage House on Sunday evening for the Oscars Preview Party Live Show. As an extra treat for our Patreon subscribers, join us on Monday, April 26th (the morning after the Oscars telecast) for an Oscars wrap-up special. We'll no doubt have a LOT to say, so if you were thinking about becoming a Patreon member, now's the time!

76 - Ronna Spills the Tea with London Hughes
Now wait a minute. You know her as Ronna. A few people call her Ronnie, and only Andy Cohen calls her Rona, but, whatever you call her, she and (Bryan) are here this week with a truly fabulous guest. We're so excited to welcome comedian, writer, and presenter London Hughes to The Carriage House! You know her from her Netflix special TO CATCH A DICK as well as her appearances on THE HISTORY OF SWEAR WORDS. London helps us give advice on offending your in-laws, living a lie with your barber, and what to do when you find a playmate for your dog only to realize that you hate its owner.
It's almost here! Our Oscars Preview Party LIVE from The Carriage House is THIS WEEKEND! Join us on Sunday 4/18 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT for analysis, games, prizes, music, and so much more. With Variety’s own Kate Aurthur & Adam B. Vary as our special guests! Even if you haven’t seen all of this year's movies, you can still count on this being an EVENT, excuse me. Tickets available at askronnalive.com , and we even have a few Meet & Greet Red Carpet Experience tickets left! After the show we'll also have a Zoom room afterparty so you can hang out and chat with your fellow Carriage House cohorts. Will Ronna make an appearance at the afterparty? You never know!

75 - Classic Cliffhangers: Carnal Knowledge, Part Deux
Look, we receive hundreds of letters a month here at Ask Ronna. But with the number of letters we get about issues of the boudoir, we might be two steps away from becoming the Penthouse Forum. Not that we're complaining! You've written in with some, shall we say, titillating questions during the pandemic, and, as you know, we save our most titillating letters for our cliffhangers. So, without further adieu, we present you with Classic Cliffhangers: Carnal Knowledge, Part Deux, a collection of some of our most outrageous letters, including a sexy encounter with a straight friend, the story of the "best gay son" from Cleveland, and an accidental sext.
And you can catch the ENTIRE episode on YouTube! Visit youtube.com/askronna to watch.
Of course, if you joined us every Friday on Patreon, you'd be getting cliffhanger answers every week along with our most intimate Carriage House experience. Give it a try! Just $5 a month gets you access to a bonus show every Friday, and $10 a month gets you VIP Sauna Privileges access with full video of the episode along with other goodies.
Our Oscars Preview Party LIVE at The Carriage House is coming up on 4/18! Predictions, special guests, games...we've got it all. Get your tickets at askronnalive.com !
Today's the day! Carriage House sweetheart Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney's new novel GOOD COMPANY is officially on sale! But if you pre-ordered it, it should be in your mailbox momentarily.

Here's your chance to pick a New York Times bestselling author's brain, pardon me. Need a copy? Get it here: https://bookshop.org/shop/askronna
74 - The Theory of Balls
Have we got a show this week or what? First off, it's Comedy Week on Stitcher and we're absolutely thrilled to be included. And with (Bryan) back in The Carriage House again (and not off on a commercial shoot as Marblehead's most vaccinated actor), we thought it was the perfect time for a good old fashioned Carriage House Catch-Up. And, between you and me, I think we deliver in spades! After covering everything from grooming to television to physics, we give our advice on whether or not to tell your husband you made out with your best friend, what to do when you find out one of your best friends is MUCH older than you thought, and some luxurious gift advice for family members going through a stressful start to this year.
It's coming! Our Oscars Preview Party LIVE from The Carriage House is happening on Sunday, April 18th, at 8pm ET / 5pm PT...and tickets are available NOW! $15 gets you Dolby Theater access, but, if you want the real red carpet treatment with a 1-on-1 Meet & Greet with Ronna (or Bryan), you need to act fast! Those tickets are limited! Visit askronnalive.com for details.
Simply the best!
Better than all the rest.
You need this podcast
Your friends are asking you, “what can I do about my relative who won’t get vaccinated?” And many other questions about the transition to a more normal post-pandemic life. You do not need to come up with the answers in your own little head; listen to this podcast! Not to mention there is so much other really good advice about life and relationships from Ronna, Brian, and their truly stellar guests. ALSO! Let’s face it, a lot of us need to exercise more — It is Spring!! The sun is out! All you need is a good set of ear buds, comfortable walking shoes, and this podcast. You will be laughing out loud but your neighbors already think you are a little nutty.
If you’re not listening to Ronna and Bryan, what are you even doing with your life? I’ve been a subscriber since day 1. I expected to laugh. I did not expect to cry, hear better advice than my actual therapist gives, or get a celebrity guest almost every week that I’m also a fan of. There’s no other podcast around that has perfected the art of balancing humor, sincerity, tough love (Ronna), a few crude jokes here and there (Bryan), class, incredible guests, superb recommendations, and did I mention humor? When my city was dealt the blow of two major hurricanes within weeks, we listened to Ask Ronna for the 8 hour drive to our evacuation destination. For 5 of those hours, we were at a complete stop. Ronna said something that had me in stitches and I jumped out of the car and peed right on the side of the rode....in a traffic jam. I couldn’t hold it. Totally worth it. Subscribe NOW. Join the Carriage House NOW. And last but not least 5 stars ONLY!!! ❤️
