Jeff's Homemade Cheez-Its recipe:

8 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 tsp kosher salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp mustard powder

1 tsp garlic powder

2 to 3 tbsp ice water

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a bread machine on dough setting, mix the cheese, butter, and salt on low speed until combined.

Combine the flour, mustard and garlic powder. Add to the mix on low until pebbly.

Slowly add 2 tablespoons of cold water and mix as the dough forms a ball. If needed, add the additional tablespoon of water a little at a time until the dough forms.

Pat the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Divide the dough into two pieces and roll each into a very thin 10×12-inch rectangle (the dough should be no more than ⅛-inch high).

Using a fluted pastry wheel or a pizza cutter, cut the rectangles into 1-inch squares, then transfer them to the baking sheets.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until puffed and browning at the edges.

Immediately move the crackers to wire racks to cool completely, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Tiffany Haddish (orig air date 4/24/16)

Dec 25, 2017 01:31:57

Description:

Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays! Hope you enjoy this replay of my Tiffany Haddish episode with a brand new beginning. Come see me at Sketch Fest!  And buy Tiffany's book!

I first met comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish (Keanu, The Carmichael Show) when we both appeared on a radio show and ever since then I’ve hoped to have her on ARIYNBF. I’d heard bits and pieces of her story and got the sense she’d had a rough upbringing but I wasn’t quite prepared for the intensity of what she’d experienced. Abusive parents, foster care, living in her car, an abusive first husband, care taking from the age of 8, and even as I write this I feel as if I’m not conveying the particulars that make her story so powerful. And yet throughout, she’s joking and positive. In addition, we talked about the importance of trusting your first mind, when she was misquoted by TMZ, auditioning for SNL, the help she received from Kevin Hart, arguing with Dane Cook, Six Flags abortions, eating rat meat, peach jello, audition makeup and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Tiffany Haddish

Apr 25, 2016 01:29:18

Description:

I first met comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish (Keanu, The Carmichael Show) when we both appeared on a radio show and ever since then I've hoped to have her on ARIYNBF. I'd heard bits and pieces of her story and got the sense she'd had a rough upbringing but I wasn't quite prepared for the intensity of what she'd experienced. Abusive parents, foster care, living in her car, an abusive first husband, care taking from the age of 8, and even as I write this I feel as if I'm not conveying the particulars that make her story so powerful. And yet throughout, she's joking and positive. In addition, we talked about the importance of trusting your first mind, when she was misquoted by TMZ, auditioning for SNL, the help she received from Kevin Hart, arguing with Dane Cook, Six Flags abortions, eating rat meat, peach jello, audition makeup and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Arden Myrin

Apr 18, 2016 01:18:56

Description:

I'm in love with actress, writer and comedian Arden Myrin. I love that she claims to have looked like "a little red-headed gentleman" until she was 19, I love that she describes herself as "silly and rascally" and I love listening to her talk about how for her, stand up has been a spiritual journey. Also, there's the story about what happened to her lady parts while enthusiastically doing the worm onstage but that one just makes me want to cross my legs for eternity. In addition, on this episode we talked about The Bachelor, Arden's parents marrying on a dare and her relationship with each of them, salty dogs, Mad TV and what all the women performers had in common, working as an elf at Macy's, losing her special sauce, body image, insomnia and so much more.

Trash Chat and Buffet Wishes

Mar 31, 2016 01:35:08

Plus drug and injection chat in The Biological Clock, Dustin's wedding, Star Wars and Game of Thrones. And we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Elmo.

Alison's Hugs and Big Pink Cats!

Mar 17, 2016 01:26:13

Description:

Do I give the kind of hugs that could best be described as non-committal and tentative? I think of myself as a distributor of warm snuggly hugs however the feedback I've received of late would suggest otherwise. We delved into this gritty topic along with a discussion of a sex dream involving Jimmy Pardo, my recent consecutive social engagements, a backhanded insult which isn't a thing but it was, Phil Rosenthal's food and travel show, Jenna's tour de force as a cat from the South, St. Patrick's Day, Al getting a tweet from LL Cool J and so much more.

Women wanted to hear him do a "TED talk about relationships" but he was there to do standup. We also discussed his decision to host  a daytime talk show, getting diagnosed with cancer while on tour in Australia, fatherhood, drug addiction and the impact it's had on his marriage, Janeane Garafalo, Oprah, music, sobriety, podcasts, upcoming projects and so much more.

Feb 29, 2016 01:42:58

Description:

Nikki Glaser may be the first repeat Monday guest we've had in Dining Room Studios which puts her in an elite group of one, despite that fact that her therapist Donna tries to impress upon her she's just average. The last time Nikki and I talked, she was shooting a talk show pilot about sex for Comedy Central. She's now moved to Los Angeles and is hosting that same show, Not Safe with Nikki Glaser. On this episode we talked about a video she claimed was satisfying but which slightly traumatized Jeff and me, the guilt she feels for being tired all the time, working with her boyfriend who is also an executive producer on Not Safe, the time she fainted on stage, liking to talk about things people don't normally talk about, getting over childhood hurts, first kisses, feeling betrayed as a teen when friends matured at a faster rate and so much more.

Alex Blagg

Feb 22, 2016 01:47:49

Description:

Alex Blagg is the kind of overachiever who makes you feel as if you aren't doing enough with your life/career, but in a completely charming way. In addition to being the co-creator and executive producer of @midnight, he writes for Workaholics, helms (along with two partners) a successful production company, writes feature scripts and is raising twins. And he doesn't even seem stressed. We talked about what brought him to this point: growing up the son of "cool Jesus" parents, moving around, renouncing the fratboy path he was headed down in favor of film and literature, doing comedy, working as the managing editor for the Best Week Ever site, taking a job in LA that was ultimately demoralizing and then inadvertently turning his own life into performance art/parody as a social media and tech guru also named Alex Blagg.

Gustavo Arellano

Feb 15, 2016 01:47:52

Description:

I knew Gustavo way back when I was leaving the OC Weekly and he was starting there. He came out of nowhere it seemed and was suddenly writing a zillion articles a week which, I heard at the time, didn't exactly endear him to the other writers. He went on to gain attention and notoriety with his now nationally syndicated "Ask a Mexican" column, author three books and become the editor-in-chief of the paper. He also regularly appears on radio programs and is a consulting producer on Fox's animated Bordertown. We chatted about his beginnings and how he got to where he is today including growing up the son of "Mexican hillbillies," not quite fitting in, falling in love with film and Pulp Fiction in particular, being a nerd, being repeatedly unaware of office politics, the satirical letter that changed his life, his relationship with former OC Weekly editor Will Swaim and so much more.

Michael Ian Black

Feb 8, 2016 01:12:47

Description:

I've been a fan of actor, writer and comedian Michael Ian Black for years so it was a real treat to have him stop by my podcast during one of his trips to Los Angeles. We talked about his podcast How to Be Amazing and his approach to interviewing before delving into some of the meatier topics explored in his most recent book—which I loved and highly recommend—Navel Gazing: True Tales of Bodies, Mostly Mine (but also my mom's which I know sounds weird). We chatted about growing up in a home filled with rage, growing up without much male influence, his gay-but-not-aware-of-it-yet mother being subjected to shock treatment by her parents and his theories about what led to this, his choice to live in Connecticut and thoughts about Los Angeles, whether people expect him to be more snarky  than he is and his desire to be a good person. Plus we took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Jake Fogelnest

Feb 1, 2016 01:33:04

Description:

I like to think I was something of a precocious whippersnapper, but writer, director, producer, podcaster, television personality Jake Fogelnest (Wet Hot American Summer, Billy On The Street, Difficult People) has me beat. At age 7 he wanted to be John Waters... and then actually contacted and spoke with John Waters. (I merely wrote a fan letter to animal expert Joan Embery and received a perfunctory written reply.) He went on to host a public access show, Squirt TV, from his bedroom in Manhattan which was later picked up by MTV all before going to rehab at the age of 17. Eventually he found UCB which is when, he says, his real career began. We discussed all this plus Terry Gross, The Monkees, the difference between Adam Driver and Ryan Seacrest, sobriety, resentments, self-care, selling out and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Statistics, Probability, Tension and Soup

Jan 28, 2016 01:39:58

Description:

Ok look, this was a weird show. There was tension, embarrassment, statistics and probability (part of our fledgling "What Does #AL Know" segment), egg talk, a discussion of soup, music and whether it's better to have a lot of lights on or very few. Also we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone!

Kate Micucci

Jan 25, 2016 01:33:25

Description:

I first met comedian, musician, actress and artist Kate Micucci years ago when she and Riki Lindhome performed live as Garfunkel & Oates at my first live Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend show at UCB. I've wanted to have her on the show solo to really delve into all things Kate ever since. On this episode we talked about the ways in which she's the same as she was as a kid, what she was like as a kid and her close relationship with her parents, crying at school because she missed them, being a late bloomer, her first kiss, going to three colleges, her love of sunsets, puppet making, her favorite musicals, school dances, hitchhiking and why she stopped, being poor, how she broke into commercials, meeting Riki and writing their goals on napkins (she still carries one with her to this day), sitcoms, relationships, being sheltered, swearing and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

What Does Al Know???? (And Another Salad Debacle)

Jan 21, 2016 01:36:55

Description:

This episode features the birth of an on-the-fly-off-the-cuff segment entitled, "What does #AL know?" in which we attempt to figure out the titular question and also, how the game works. We also talked about sports and finance which is unusual for us and I detailed yet another salad debacle. Also I just had blood drawn and I think my vein hurts which is neither here nor there and has nothing to do with this episode but just saying, weird arm sensation. And we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and Daniel revealed some of my secrets.

Susie Meister

Jan 11, 2016 01:41:00

Description:

You might know Susie Meister from her many seasons on MTV, first on Road Rules and then on The Challenge. Or maybe you know her from her podcast Brain Candy which she hosts with fellow MTV'er Sarah Rice, or the one she hosted before that, The Meister Piece. When she first popped up on screens she was known for being super religious (pentecostal) but over the seasons her beliefs changed and now she has a different relationship with religion, along with a PHD in Religious Studies.

Magicians, Hypnosis, Things Placed Inside Alison

Jan 7, 2016 01:33:50

Description:

My God, who names these episodes? Just kidding, it's me, the person who was awake for a harrowing surgical prep and who has maybe changed her mind a little about Versed because it turns out certain kinds of discomfort cut right through the haze and wake you right the fuck up. Also waking me up? The steroids they put in the IV during the last egg retrieval. But this episode isn't only fert alerts, we also learned what everyone did for New Year's Eve. One person's evening involved a magician! Also we discussed hypnosis, both the parlor trick kind and the therapeutic kind and then we had an extra special snack chat involving chill pipes and Utah's own chocolate cinnamon bears. Then things nearly came to blows over Red Vines vs. Twizzlers and other controversial candy and we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Jay Larson

Jan 4, 2016 01:22:19

Description:

I met Jay Larson back when I was a guest on The CrabFeast and have wanted to have him on my show ever since. It finally happened and I learned all sorts of things about the man like the fact he has about 12 memories of his father, he now auditions for parts where the characters are described as “surprisingly handsome” which has got to be a bit of a kick in the nuts since he was THE SHIT in high school and definitely handsome in a way that was obvious not surprising, he lives life in the moment and he and his wife ride their bikes to the local playhouse. We also talked about fatherhood, how he met his wife, relationships in general, how he differs from his CrabFeast cohost Ryan Sickler, his love of rude people, Best Bars in America and so much more. Plus we took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

The New York Odyssey and Our Special Year End Episode

Dec 31, 2015 01:47:33

Description:

Sure you could let Ryan Seacrest count down your New Year's eve but wouldn't you rather do it with us, your new best friends? We did a full on count down with noisemakers that you can sync up to midnight. Did Alison's landlord call in the middle? Oh yes. But surprisingly it wasn't about the noise! Also on this special year end episode I recount Daniel and my New York odyssey which included a lot of vomit and an encounter or two with TSA. Plus we talk about our New Year's resolutions, Greg's text exchange wherein he tried to talk his 13 year old nephew out of a Paul Reed Smith guitar, cacao, snack chat, the upcoming new website, Jenna and Al's time in Utah, the significance of this year (recorded on the anniversary of THE EMAIL) and so much more. We also did a round of New Year's Eve themed JMOES. Happy New Year, everyone!

Alex Buono and Rhys Thomas

Dec 28, 2015 01:10:53

Description:

Writer, producer, cinematographer Alex Buono (SNL, Documentary Now!, Bigger Stronger Faster) and writer, director, producer Rhys Thomas (SNL, Documentary Now!, Staten Island Summer) head up Saturday Night Live's film unit which means they're responsible for shooting all those funny filmed bits you see on the show. They also handle SNL's opening credits every year—a discovery which led to my learning two of my favorite new terms: "lens whacking" and "pixel sticking."  On this episode we talked about the experience of working on SNL and the process of shooting the filmed pieces, holding panic at bay, how they met each other, racing against the clock, working with Lorne, Alex commuting to NYC every week, how they each got their start, the process of directing, producing and shooting Documentary Now!, early films they made, other projects they're working on and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me or Everyone.

Winter Wonderland Holiday Spectacular!

Dec 24, 2015 01:20:17

Description:

Our Christmas episode doesn't start out very Xmasy if I remember correctly and warning for those who listen around young kids who still believe in Santa: at one point someone blurted out that Santa isn't real. We also talked about Merry Christmas versus Happy Holidays and my strange relationship with Judaism and why it sometimes feels icky when people make a point of saying "Happy Holidays" or rather, why it felt icky growing up. But this one isn't all conflict and outing Santa. We also talk about soda wars, what everyone's doing for the holidays, Greg's eczema, favorite Christmas programming and an off-the-cuff Christmas-themed #AL quiz. Plus we did a round of holiday themed Just Me Or Everyone. (This just in: on the episode I referred to it as an "extravaganza" not a "spectacular." It's both!)

Bill Schulz

Dec 21, 2015 01:40:11

Description:

Bill Schulz (Red Eye, NY Times) and I go way back to my early-ish days in New York when we both worked for magazines and played on separate competitive skee-ball teams. We forgot to talk about skee-ball but we talked about everything else and I mean EVERYTHING, even when it got a little uncomfortable. Anyway, as I explain on the show, I worked for a magazine and had started appearing regularly on television and thought I was hot shit so when fellow magazine writer Bill told me Maxim UK editor Greg Gutfeld was coming back from England to start a TV show and he was going to be a part of it, I was pretty sure it wouldn't last because I was probably the only writer to successfully make the transition to TV because let's face it, people who work at magazines are not on-camera people. That show was Red Eye and I was spectacularly wrong. Bill was a fundamental part of the program so like a lot of people, I was pretty surprised to hear he was no longer with the show. We discussed his leaving—along with some comparisons of our separate similar experiences—plus some of what led up to the split and his feelings about the situation. We also talked about his writing career, his New York Times column, men's magazines, relationships, his childhood, discovering a dipshit character in Amy Schumer's Trainwreck may or may not have been based on him, lavish company Christmas parties, wardrobe budgets, talking politics, acrimony and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

The Salmon Incident, Al's a Cat, Elevator Fears

Dec 17, 2015 01:32:58

Description:

Greg and his somewhat productive cough are back which means this episode wastes no time in jumping into the most important topic of the day: Jenna and #AL's avocado tree. Also we talk about Daniel and my upcoming trip, The Salmon Incident, what might be on your phone, superhero comics, what kind of kids we all were and whether we wanted to be older, get rich quick schemes, male vs. female therapists and therapy in general and plane and elevator fears and by the way I am still haunted by the elevator discussion! We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Zoe Lister-Jones

Dec 14, 2015 01:14:17

Description:

Zoe Lister-Jones (Whitney, Arranged) stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to talk about Consumed, the dramatic indie thriller she and her husband Daryl Wein recently made which is the first narrative film about GMOs—and we did talk about it—but first we had to chat about the period of time she and her husband had an open relationship and the movie they made about that experience called Breaking Upwards. We also talked about the one woman show Zoe did years ago in which she played multiple characters including a deaf vagina, growing up the child of artist parents in Brooklyn, feeling sympathy toward men, seeking unavailable men, playing Joe Biden's legal counsel in the upcoming Confirmation, how to make a rat scratch itself on cue and animal entourages, sad burgers, shopping for toilet paper and tampons in bulk and so much more. We also took your questions over twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Adults Who Eat Baby Food (with special guest Mike Carano)

Dec 10, 2015 01:44:27

Description:

Greg was sick for this episode and afraid to spread germs to the newest member of the Thursday gang plus the people who care for her so he sat this one out but sent a very special recorded message which was only rivaled in beauty by length. Sitting in for Greg was someone who is vaguely similar, recent Monday show guest Mike Carano. I say vaguely similar because like Greg, Mike also wonders if Jenna, #AL and Mormons in general judge him. On this episode we also talked about being "natural" parents, whether Mike is a good judge of character because he realizes he's a bad judge of character, a couple stories from Daniel and my recent visit with Daniel's mom, bawling through Frozen and other movies and musicals, the stress but also the liberation of self check out, being shamed by bank and fast food employees, adults who eat or have eaten baby food (GUILTY! BUT ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN), the current ordeal I'm experiencing thanks to spinach, suspecting you'll be irritated by Flea and the Jackass guys and so much more. We also did a round #SNACKCHAT and a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Jack Barakat and Justin Siegel

Dec 7, 2015 01:18:51

Description:

Jack Barakat, lead guitarist for the pop punk band All Time Low and co-host of the Full Frontal Radio podcast was scheduled to be the only guest on this episode so I was surprised when two faces greeted me at the door. "This is my buddy Justin," Jack said as he walked in. "Is it cool if he sits in?" I agreed, since I am an agreeable person, but spent the first many minutes before the mics were on saying, "Wait, who are you and what do you do and what's going on?" It's weird when you've researched the crap out of only fifty percent of your guests. As it turned out, I shouldn't have worried. Justin (who himself is a musician and music exec) and Jack go way back and having Justin there brought a fun dimension to the interview since he was able to provide another perspective and first hand account of many of the topics we touched upon including Jack's investment in rock and roll bars, his relationships and friendships with Holly Madison and Abigail Breslin, his dating habits, writing new material, anorexic aliens, a bathtub full of cheese, black Amex cards, how he met Holly, breakups, whether he's still just a guy from Baltimore, how someone becomes big in Japan, major labels, signing a record deal in high school, partying, chasing a hit single, Bod body spray and what his bandmates smell like, recording his podcast on the road, his childhood, fleeing war torn Beirut when he was a baby, music theory, Rivers Cuomo and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

There Was No Curtain! (But There is a Baby!)

Dec 3, 2015 01:35:36

Description:

Samantha Moss makes her Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend debut on this episode and by that I mean she was sleeping like an angel a few feet from the table while we all cooed and our hearts melted. Before the show Greg met her for the first time and announced, "I like holding babies. Holding babies is a thing I like to do." So if anyone is wondering, that's where Greg stands on baby holding. On this episode we got the low-down from Jenna on labor which involved, among other things, a balloon and a hairbrush. It did not involve modesty or a curtain. We also talked about insomnia and my attempts to rid myself of it, everyone's Thanksgivings, pomegranates, toilets, afterbirths and so much more. And we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Dana Gould Returns

Nov 30, 2015 01:29:00

Description:

Dana Gould and I sat down for a very rare, honest and unflinching conversation about his recent breakup and divorce along with his experience adopting three children. We also talked about the genesis of his podcast, his thoughts about gun control and the NRA, Al Anon and the two memories that bookend his marriage. I say "rare, honest and unflinching" because I am under the impression Dana doesn't normally pull the curtain back this far. If he does, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW.  I'm pretty convinced this is an exclusive and also a hot scoop. You know, the kind of thing that would have made me yell "podcast boner!" if I weren't so calm and collected. Anyway, I love Dana and think he's one of the best comics around and loved this chance to get to know him a little better, cold hunk of peanut butter and all. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Happy Thanksgiving from Alison's Nose Whistle

Nov 26, 2015 01:21:55

Description:

Daniel and I just had a hearty debate about whether it's a mistake to reveal whose nose was whistling right in the episode title. I pointed out that we already revealed it on last week's show but then he said it's possible people might have missed that one and he personally enjoyed the way it "revealed itself organically." And now here I am, non-organically shoving the info into the show title. Except what are my options, I ask you? "Happy Thanksgiving from Someone's Nose Whistle?" "Happy Thanksgiving from a Mysterious Nose Whistle?" Actually, both of those would have worked but as the woman who did my makeup at my wedding said to me when she put the wrong shade of lipstick on me and I pointed it out, "That ship has sailed, sister!" (I AM TOTALLY OVER IT AND I DEFINITELY DON'T BRING UP MY BURNT SIENNA LIPS WHENEVER I TALK ABOUT MY WEDDING.) Anyway, on this special Thanksgiving episode which was recorded before Jenna had her baby, we talk about all the things we're thankful for as well as toxic pans, Twilight Zone and even more egg talk. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone. Happy Thanksgiving you guys!

Josh Wolf

Nov 23, 2015 01:29:06

Description:

Though I only met comedian and author Josh Wolf (Chelsea Lately, The Josh Wolf Show, Fairly Normal with Josh Wolf podcast) over Twitter a few weeks before we did this episode, I felt like we were fast friends. We chatted about all sorts of stuff including toxic work environments and not wanting to work with assholes, covert assholes, his experience being a young single guy raising three kids, visits from the health department, terrible bangs, how he met his wife and relationships in general, taping socks to his armpits, opening for Sam Kinison at the start of his career, Chelsea Handler and Joey Diaz babysitting his kids, getting kicked out of the ocean and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

The Make It Worse Theatre Presents: You Don't Think, Kristin

Nov 19, 2015 01:23:32

Description:

Last week Greg regaled us with stories of his fractious former neighbors. What he didn't say, or maybe he did and I forgot, is that they were so loud he was able to record them from his kitchen. He sent me the audio clip but was hesitant to have us play it on the show because he's a decent person. So I did the only smart thing someone in my position could do: listened to it 900 times in order to transcribe it so we could reenact on the show. Also in this episode, Jenna is still extremely pregnant and had a contraction, Greg and Daniel have app ideas and I have an idea for a cologne and also a shoe-musement park, Greg cries during movies and which way to lean while hugging. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Matt Nathanson Returns

Nov 16, 2015 01:26:09

Description:

Matt Nathanson and I went to college together and as I confess to him early on in this episode, I've come to feel like he and I are on similar journeys in life. It's an incredibly squishy and drippy thing to say and if I read it or overheard it, I'd probably roll my eyes. And yet here I am, coughing it up for you right here and also on the podcast. Back in the day (and also on the tenth episode of my podcast on which he guested) we fought good-naturedly about all sorts of stuff with the exception of the couple of times it felt not so good-natured. But these days we totally get along. On this episode we talk about ego states, parenthood, the necessity of being totally honest if you're an artist, fame, poetry, Matt's childhood and boarding school experience, his new album, infidelity, his family, his relationship with his parents, the Taylor Swift Incident, Bill Murray and so much more. We also took your questions over twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and he played a song.

Make It Worse, Rob! Make It Worse!

Nov 12, 2015 01:15:38

Description:

On this episode which we recorded one day before Jenna's due date (spoiler alert: she's still pregnant) we talked about cervical ripeness, my buying pre-peeled hard cooked eggs because I'm a "useless sack of shit," how to properly boil eggs at home, mint ice cream and whether it's gross or not (#AL and #ALISON say it is), Greg officiating at his sister's wedding, books vs Kindles, eating dogs and cats, googling upsetting things, massages at barbershops, sunglasses and rudeness and so much more. Plus we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Mike Carano

Nov 9, 2015 01:48:28

Description:

I suspected I would love talking with Mike Carano (The After Disaster, 5 Minutes with Mike, Miscellaneous Adventures from the World of Mike Carano) and I was right because he's incredibly honest and open about all the stuff that goes through his head. We discussed how he feels uncomfortable all the time, trespassing, decision making, his childhood and his stint in a cult, his relationship with his parents, self-help books, meditation, Dr. Drew, how he met his After Disaster cohorts, being afraid to disappoint people, drinking, meds, The Madonna Inn, driving, snacks and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Josh Gondelman

Nov 2, 2015 01:36:47

Description:

Writer and comedian Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight, Billy on the Street, New Yorker) traveled all the way from New York to be on my podcast and while he was in town he stopped by the Emmys. Or maybe I have that backwards. Regardless, he was in town and we talked about all sorts of stuff including his experience writing on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, You Blew It! An Awkward Look at the Many Ways In Which You've Already Ruined Your Life (his new book with Joe Berkowitz), discovering comedy, writing the @modernseinfeld Twitter account, why Twitter is better than OK Cupid, the fragility of adult friendships, job searches, elementary school Spanish, ramadas, porches and so much more. We also answered your questions and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

A Romantic Halloween Spooktacular!

Oct 29, 2015 01:49:07

Description:

This was supposed to be our spooky Halloween-themed episode and it started that way, with horrifying talk of my new obsession with Dirty Diet Cokes and some riveting Gal Chat regarding nails but then talk turned to Greg's unanswered questions about how I met Daniel and then how Greg met his wife and how Al first described Jenna to his parents and it became a very romantic Halloween show.  But then we Halloween'd it up again with a shocking revelation about Almond Joy and Mounds, agent dating, jealousy, course titles, costumes, avocados and a scary round of Halloween-themed Just Me Or Everyone.

Michael Showalter Returns

Oct 26, 2015 01:14:03

Description:

Michael Showalter and I go way back to 2006-ish when I did a series of interviews for Time Out New York/PS1 Radio (they were very early podcasts, actually) and he was the first person I interviewed. Over the years I've interviewed him many more times and I always love talking with him, probably because I'm such a huge fan of his work from The State to Wet Hot American Summer to Stella and now Neftlix's Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp (not to mention The Baxter and Mr. Funny Pants and all the projects I'm forgetting). It was fascinating to find out how he regards his own success and how the Netflix series, he says, "changed the narrative." Also he recently made a film called Hello My Name is Doris starring Sally Field and Max Greenfield and it was heartbreaking and beautiful. We also talked hypnotherapy (I was inspired to make an appointment after our conversation), kids, NY work ethics vs. LA work ethics (and the cultural differences in general), cats, tennis and sportiness. Plus we took your questions over twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone. (BTW, still trying this thing where I write the episode summaries in EXTREME FIRST PERSON. Is it still working? Lemme know. Ok bye.)

Dirty Diet Coke, Bonus Fruits and Mormon Funeral Potatoes

Oct 22, 2015 01:35:41

Description:

I included Dirty Diet Coke in this episode title because ever since Jenna talked about it on the show, I can't stop thinking about it. I am to Dirty Diet Coke as Greg Heller is to Mormon Funeral Potatoes. Also, I've decided to write these show descriptions in a different way. What do you think? Lemme know. I can easily go back to taking myself out of the description however let's be real, I am writing these words. Anyhoozles, Jenna and Al and Greg were back on this episode and joined Jeff, Daniel and me for a chat about almost getting run over by a bike on the sidewalk (while I was texting), tap dancing, Adoption vs. IVF and people being kinda dickish online, Greg's fishing and surfing trip, bathroom habits, peach air freshener, the extendo version of The Fruit Song, Greg's dream about Anderson Cooper, shaking hands with the unemployed (i.e. masturbation), Pretty Little Liars, Gilmore Girls and more.
