Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

United States

Writer, comedian and unabashed crappy television fan Alison Rosen (you know her as Adam Carolla's news girl) shares all the junk in her head in a fun and silly (but sometimes serious) weekly interview show touching on relationships, pop culture and current events, listener interaction and trying to figure out if that thing you do that you think no one else does is normal.

Episodes

Alison's baby isn't budging, Jenna and Al have a skunk situation, special guest Sean Jordan agrees with Jenna's sauce-to-taco ratio and Daniel is singing a Sting song that too many people don't seem to recognize. Also Sean witnessed his mother give birth, Daniel's over breasts, Alison got into it with someone on Facebook and also Twitter and everyone has thoughts on the circus closing, Apple's potential iPhone "theater mode" function and Taco Bell's taco shell made entirely of fried chicken. Plus a round of Just Me Or Everyone.
