…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]
