About Us

A twice weekly podcast hosted by veteran interviewer and everyone's new best friend, Alison Rosen, featuring surprisingly honest conversations that are equal parts silly, serious, revelatory and sometimes involving a sombrero. Plus an eternal quest to find out if that thing you think or do is normal in a segment called "Just Me or Everyone?"

Erin Gibson Will Make You Love Santa Fe

Erin Gibson (Throwing Shade, Feminasty, Groceries, History: The Shequel) stops by the show to talk about buying a multi-unit property in Santa Fe for her sick father, mother-in-law and husband's brother to live in and turning the other units into chic rentals. She shares about the process of advocating medically for her father, watching him nearly die in front of her, relocating him, learning how to effectively take care of him and the effect the experience has had on her. Turns out Santa Fe suits her in such an overpowering way that in the course of writing this summary I've sold my home and now I live in Santa Fe. Also she took advice from a witch. We also chat about her feelings about the industry, family members' reactions to Feminasty, astrology, coincidences, her many podcasts and more. P.S. Very much almost named this episode, "Erin Gibson Says 'Eat Sh*t, Denise.'"
