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 finally saw privacy-prone Daniel using the toilet and can't stop talking about it. Also the gang accidentally received someone else's birthday bundt. Alison's recent ant problem leads special guest John Henson to share a similar but much more upsetting story. Plus being a good person, English muffins, some sad news from Jenna, a round of Just Me Or Everyone and an adoptable dog named Bailey.
