Today I was on CNET’s The 404 podcast which is one of my favorite things to be on. The title of the episode (“Where we meet Alison Rosen’s mother”) comes from the way none of us understand the plot to How I Met Your Mother, as opposed to anything having to do with my own mom, btw. You can watch the episode here:
last night’s Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend recap plus online dating Qs, horror stories, where to see me
Last night’s show was really fun. First we talked to writer A.J. Jacobs, who was delightful, and then comedian Brendan McLaughlin came over to talk comedy and teach us how to professionally taste beer. He was a hoot, and I mean that in the sincerest way. At some point I also spoke Spanish and we did the wavey pencil dance and it was the greatest wavey pencil dance ever (Dustin took a solo) and we also talked about dating and my plans to do some online dating and document it on the show because I don’t go anywhere without my viewing audience.
Which brings me to a question: Have you had luck with online dating sites and which do you recommend?
And at the end of the show I invited you all to share your dating horror stories (either put them in the comments or email them to alisonrosenisyournewbestfriend AT gmail DOT com) and I will read some of them on the next show and name a winner. I’m not sure yet what the winner will win.
Oh and also, also, also, I need a logo so I can get some stickers made up. Anyone have any ideas for a logo that would look good on a bumper sticker? Maybe it should just be the name of the show. The thing that flummoxes me is that most sites where you order stickers have a button where you upload artwork. So that’s what I need. You know? Okay then.
Oh and also I had super fancy new title cards and we did a segment called “Just me or everyone?” where it was determined that many things I do are just me. It felt less reassuring than I’d hoped.
And one more potentially obnoxious thing. If anyone would like to make highlights on the videos for some of the moments I mentioned above, I will link to them.
And Friday morning at 11am ET I’ll be on CNET’s The 404 podcast. YAY!
James Sleeth made this and I’m honored to be included!
As you perhaps well know, I was on my favorite podcast—The 404—on Friday. Perhaps you want to watch it? I think so.
Go here for more on Natali Del Conte. You know you want to!
And here’s a picture of me and Jeff. (Maybe I’ll start putting photos in here more?)
I embedded it because I’m fancy. Not too fancy though. Just fancy enough.
