The AV Club described my podcast as "terrific"

…in a longer thing about Pete Holmes. But still!

You Made It Weird #52: Alison Rosen

On the latest installment of You Made It Weird, Pete Holmes says that when he sits down to record a podcast he’s aiming for an organic, free-flowing conversation rather than a conventional interview or Q&A. That’s just what Holmes gets with Alison Rosen of The Adam Carolla Show and Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, a terrific new podcast that had Holmes on as its first guest. Holmes and Rosen have a natural, easy rhythm that allows them to explore some darkly fascinating subject matter, particularly Rosen’s creepy, mildly dispiriting introduction to the frequently creepy, mildly dispiriting world of sex. It’s not always clear who’s driving the conversation here, but that’s part of the episode (and the podcast’s) casual charm. [NR]

This was in the AV Club’s PODMASS, Best podcasts for the week of May 24-30. Yay!

  • Alison, I knew of you from Red Eye and thought you were fantastic. Discovered the Adam Carolla podcast and that confirmed you were sharp, funny, and very fast. It also showed you are a liberal, which is why I'm writing this.

    I'm rooting for you and believe you're going to land something big at some point and when you do don't slam ALL conservatives too bad. I would hate to lose my new best friend. : )

    Keep up the great work and thanks for making me laugh so much.  God Bless.

     I wouldn't classify Alison as a liberal because, to me at least, it would seem to indicate she is overtly political. I've never considered her very political, even when she appeared on Red Eye. I am pretty sure, like most people, politics is not that important to her. So, knock the fuck off with the bullshit.

    I am writing this because I've had a couple beers and it annoys the fuck out of me when people feel the need to substantiate a person's political views when it is fucking clear as fuck that the person's podcast is about relationships, fun times, nice conversation and fuckin, cutsie wootsie baby animals or other cute things that make Alison's voice rise two octaves.

    TrappDog, if you happen to read this, you too are cutsie wootsie.

    OMG! Boink are we fans of a liberal!?!? I thought liberals weren't allowed to use profanity…Alison drops the f-bomb too much to be liberal. Trap can you write a song about cutsie wootsie baby animals destroying relationships?

     That new drop RAWKS dude… also, Alison DOES cuss a lot now!! Sometimes, when her show starts, I sing along to the ARIYNB theme song. However, I sometimes sing, “Alison… Rosen… Alison Rosen has a potty mouth! Alison… Alison… she said “cunt, bitch, fuck, and cock!”

    Very catchy Boink….that is for the  ARIYNBF (adult version) show. I think Hollywood changes people but underneath Alison's new look…her handlers, bodyguards and towel boys…she is still the same sweet person!

  • Best Friends shouldn't be conditional. On politics or otherwise.

    Is it bad to think we're best friend material. I had a conversation yesterday about the awareness people have of their own charisma. Alison and Pete are definitely charmers. Let's be them.
