78 - Just Add Water with Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
Now, wait a minute. This is it. The time has arrived. One of our most eagerly anticipated guests we've ever had in The Carriage House. Joining us this week is none other than "instant" New York Times Bestseller (just add water) Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney! Her second book, GOOD COMPANY, is out now, and it's a must-read smash hit. Cynthia is eager to make her Free Feed debut, and she doesn't disappoint when she helps us give advice on dealing with a very strained family relationship, the pitfalls of young (and fickle) love, and an intergenerational dog drama. GOOD COMPANY is officially a New York Times Bestseller, and you can own it today! We can't recommend it enough. Get a copy here & support the show! https://bookshop.org/shop/askronna It's raw ramen time! We've reached the ramen threshold, and Ronna's going to have to chomp on some raw noodles. Keep an eye out for what promises to be a, shall we say, intense video experience. There's never been a better time to join us on Patreon. Case in point: we posted our Oscar Wrap-Up show yesterday where we give our two cents on what was certainly a "unique" ceremony, to put it mildly. We have a LOT to say about it, and it's available ONLY on Patreon.

77 - Blew It Out of the Waterpark with Greta Titelman
Now, wait a minute. We may be exhausted from this past weekend (Ronna's tootsies are still hurting) but it's only because we hit it out of the waterpark with our Oscars Preview Party Live Show (if you'll pardon (Bryan)'s mixed metaphor). Thank you all for coming! It was a BLAST, but we're not done entertaining you this week. We're beyond excited to welcome to The Carriage House comedian, actress, and writer Greta Titelman! You know Greta from her podcast THE WORST as well as from HBO's quirky hit series LOS ESPOOKYS. Greta helps us give advice on a very troubling situation with a friend's husband, dealing with sexual compatibility in a new relationship, and the mail forwarding drama to end all mail forwarding dramas.

76 - Ronna Spills the Tea with London Hughes
Now wait a minute. You know her as Ronna. A few people call her Ronnie, and only Andy Cohen calls her Rona, but, whatever you call her, she and (Bryan) are here this week with a truly fabulous guest. We're so excited to welcome comedian, writer, and presenter London Hughes to The Carriage House! You know her from her Netflix special TO CATCH A DICK as well as her appearances on THE HISTORY OF SWEAR WORDS.

75 - Classic Cliffhangers: Carnal Knowledge, Part Deux
Look, we receive hundreds of letters a month here at Ask Ronna. But with the number of letters we get about issues of the boudoir, we might be two steps away from becoming the Penthouse Forum. Not that we're complaining! You've written in with some, shall we say, titillating questions during the pandemic, and, as you know, we save our most titillating letters for our cliffhangers. So, without further adieu, we present you with Classic Cliffhangers: Carnal Knowledge, Part Deux, a collection of some of our most outrageous letters, including a sexy encounter with a straight friend, the story of the "best gay son" from Cleveland, and an accidental sext.

74 - The Theory of Balls
Have we got a show this week or what? First off, it's Comedy Week on Stitcher and we're absolutely thrilled to be included. And with (Bryan) back in The Carriage House again (and not off on a commercial shoot as Marblehead's most vaccinated actor), we thought it was the perfect time for a good old fashioned Carriage House Catch-Up. And, between you and me, I think we deliver in spades! After covering everything from grooming to television to physics, we give our advice on whether or not to tell your husband you made out with your best friend, what to do when you find out one of your best friends is MUCH older than you thought, and some luxurious gift advice for family members going through a stressful start to this year. It's coming! Our Oscars Preview Party LIVE from The Carriage House is happening on Sunday, April 18th, at 8pm ET / 5pm PT...and tickets are available NOW! $15 gets you Dolby Theater access, but, if you want the real red carpet treatment with a 1-on-1 Meet & Greet with Ronna (or Bryan), you need to act fast! Those tickets are limited! Visit askronnalive.com for details.

73 - Mr. Secretary with Julián Castro
Now wait a minute. First off, yes, (Bryan) is back with us after his star turn as the new face of Barry's Tow Trucks, but we have GOT to get to our guest today. We've had some heavy hitters on recently, including some high-ranking government officials (we're looking at you, Senior Advisor to President Biden on COVID Policy, Andy Slavitt, excuse me), but we may have outdone ourselves this time, and you deserve nothing less. Joining us in The Carriage House this week is none other than former mayor of San Antonio, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Obama, and our VERY FIRST Presidential candidate, the host of the podcast OUR AMERICA, The Honorable Julián Castro! Secretary Castro joins us this week to help us give advice on dealing with in-laws who have been too lax during the pandemic, a boyfriend who may be sharing too much with his ex, and a young campaign worker trying to balance work and family. And we have a big announcement. Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 18th. We'll be hosting an Oscars preview show LIVE from The Carriage House! We'll have it all: predictions, music, games, prizes, and more...and, just like last month's live show, you'll have a chance for a one-on-one meeting with Ronna or (Bryan). Tickets go on sale this Friday for Patreon members, and next week for the Free Feed. Be there! This week's Carriage House Book Club on Patreon is Lydia Millet's A CHILDREN'S BIBLE. We'll be joined by acclaimed mystery author and LA TImes critic Charles Finch, who's fabulous. Our usual book club cohort, Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, is busy promoting her new novel GOOD COMPANY which you can pre-order now ( https://bookshop.org/shop/askronna ). Plus, Cynthia will be a guest on the Free Feed next month. Be sure to read her new book so you'll be in the know when she makes her Free Feed crossover!

72 - Grody Jody with Jessica St. Clair
After getting a Sputnik vaccine from Yadvina's husband, (Bryan) is off shooting a commercial for a local business in Marblehead and isn't with us this week. Of course he'll be back next week, but, until then, we've managed to find an absolutely delightful celebrity guest/host, excuse me... star of PLAYING HOUSE, host of the upcoming podcast DEEP DIVE, and Ronna's dear, dear friend Jessica St. Clair! After a quick catch-up, Jessica helps us give advice on a best friend who's missing in action, a next door neighbor's noisy dog, and how to dress after pandemic weight gain. Don't forget to pre-order our dear friend Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney's new book GOOD COMPANY from the link in our bio. Of course, Cynthia is a New York Times bestselling author, but our CHIPs know her from her many appearances on Patreon for Carriage House Book Club (patreon.com/askronna).  On April 27, she'll be making the jump to the Free Feed to discuss her new book. It'll be our first ever Free Feed Book Club, and we couldn't have a better guest for it!

71 - The Bridger of Madison County with Bridger Winegar
This week we welcome to The Carriage House utterly delightful writer, actor, and host of the wonderful podcast I SAID NO GIFTS, Bridger Winegar! He helps us give our pearls of wisdom on topics ranging from body image to befriending neighbors to suspicions about a spouse with the "itch." Some exciting things are happening over on Patreon! March's QUIFF selections are past Oscar winners THE APARTMENT and CASABLANCA. And this month's Carriage House Book Club selection, courtesy of (Bryan), is Lydia Millet's A CHILDREN'S BIBLE.

70 - Cruelty-Free Cruelty with Margaret Cho
With his Wi-Fi mishap from last week behind him, we're happy to report that (Bryan) is back! And not a moment too soon as we welcome a living legend to The Carriage House. There's no way you're ready for this guest. Brace yourselves! We're thrilled to welcome legendary comedian, actor, and producer Margaret Cho! Now THIS is a get, excuse me. Margaret joins us to give advice to an essential worker trying to find some personal time for herself, how to ask a coworker about her perfume without being a creep, and calling your lover "daddy" in the bedroom. We had no idea raw ramen would be such a hot topic in The Carriage House! Your messages and DMs have been coming in nonstop. But Ronna has a little proposal for you to make it interesting: when we get either 2600 Patreons or 10,000 followers on Insta, Ronna will release a video of herself eating raw ramen. This will be MUST WATCH TV! Help us make it a reality by joining us on Patreon (bonus episodes every Friday) or following us on Instagram if you're not already.

69 - Dear Ronna & Naomi with Naomi Ekperigin
Are you ready for some Carriage House firsts? We've had quite the week in Marblehead, excuse me. We had a HUGE guest planned for today, but they were affected by the horrible situation in Texas and had to cancel because they didn't have any power. Then, speaking of electricity, a power line went down right in front of The Carriage House and Ronna lost power! Public works got an earful from her, rest assured. So Ronna headed up to her brother's cabin in New Hampshire and (Bryan) stayed with the Lobsterman...who, it turns out, doesn't have any Internet. But the show must go on! No one can replace (Bryan), of course, but, in a Carriage House first, we had to find our first ever GUEST HOST, and, lucky for us, a favorite of ours was available. It's the always delightful Naomi Ekperigin! Naomi joins us to give advice on roommate problems, enjoying New York City as a first time visitor, and knowing more about a friend's relationship than the friend does. Special guest host Naomi Ekperigin only subscribes to one Patreon. Who are the lucky recipients of her endorsement? Us, of course! And we couldn't be happier to win the Naomi seal of approval. Join us on Patreon for bonus episodes every Friday! patreon.com/askronna

68 - Bring in The Banana Boys with Kurt Braunohler and Scotty Landes
Now wait a minute. Was last weekend great or was it great? The Live Show was a HUGE hit! There were plenty of Negronnas to go around, @roryography danced the night away, and we all know a little more about entertainment mogul (Bryan). Thanks so much to everyone who joined us! But if you think we're resting on our laurels after our success, think again. We've got a double dose of guests this week in The Carriage House as we welcome the hosts of the fascinating and hilarious BANANAS podcast, Kurt Braunohler and Scotty Landes! Kurt and Scotty help us give advice on dealing with a parent's overzealous dental hygiene, a sister-in-law who keeps using problematic language, and what to do when an ex owes you money. Did you enjoy the Live Show as much as we did? Did it make you wish you could have more Ronna (& Bryan) in your life? Consider joining us on Patreon! There's a brand new episode every Friday, and, if you upgrade to SAUNA PRIVILEGES, you'll get video of each show in addition to some extra goodies. You deserve it!

67 - The News Never Made Me Wet with Sydnee Washington
Baby, it's cold outside! Marblehead has been slammed with yet more snow. It's gorgeous, though (Bryan) has an awkward quandary he wants to raise at the next town council meeting that's sure to win him lifelong friends. In the meantime, we've got another multi-talented guest in The Carriage House this week. It's actor, model, comedian, and host Sydnee Washington! You know her from her Comedy Central specials and her hit Instagram Live cooking show SYD CAN COOK. You can also hear her on the podcasts HOBBY HUNTER and THE UNOFFICIAL EXPERT. Sydnee helps us answer questions on a midlife career change, getting your partner to stop talking shop at home, and magical thinking about a recent ex. The live show is THIS WEEKEND! Join us on Saturday 2/13 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT for VALENTINE'S EVE: LIVE FROM THE CARRIAGE HOUSE.

66 - “Buccal" Up with Meaghan Rath
Now wait a minute. How excited are we this week? We're a mere ten days away from our live show (we're polishing our tap shoes as we speak), it's Groundhog Day (and we're feeling good), and we're welcoming a return character back to The Carriage House. That's right...after proving herself as one of the best advice givers we've ever had on the show, she's back to grace us with her insight and wisdom. It's Meaghan Rath! Meaghan joins us to give advice on mending a broken friendship after some birthday drama, rekindling a sexually adventurous relationship, and protecting your children from the whack-a-doodle views of your in-laws. It's coming...VALENTINE'S EVE: LIVE FROM THE CARRIAGE HOUSE on February 13th 9pm ET / 6pm PT!

65 - Finnish for "Wet" with Cole Escola
Now, wait a minute. How fabulous was the inauguration? The history...the pageantry...the fashion...Amanda Gorman. We LOVED it. Some exciting things are in store! And speaking of excitement, we couldn't be happier to welcome actor and comedian Cole Escola to The Carriage House! You know Cole from AT HOME WITH AMY SEDARIS, DIFFICULT PEOPLE, and, one of Ronna's favorite shows, SEARCH PARTY (new season out now!). And if you're not subscribed to their Instagram, you're truly missing out. Cole joins us to give advice on under eye skincare, dealing with an ailing father with whom you've had a turbulent relationship, and getting your husband to date you again.

Join us on Saturday, February 13th, at 9pm ET / 6pm PT for Ronna (& Bryan)'s VALENTINE'S EVE: LIVE AT THE CARRIAGE HOUSE! Games! Prizes! Dancing! ADVICE and more! And, of course, we'll be taking some of your questions LIVE. There's also a chance for a Meet & Greet afterwards where you can hang out with Ronna (or Bryan) one-on-one, pardon me.

64 - Swiss Cheese Model with Andy Slavitt
Now wait a minute. I mean did we return last week or did we return last week? Conan was a HUGE hit in The Carriage House and everyone was so excited, but there seemed to be an air of "Oh, Ronna (& Bryan) have outdone themselves." You should know we're always reaching for the stars here, excuse me. Our influence extends beyond the world of culture and entertainment, and, we hate to tell you, we delivered again. This week we welcome former administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services during the Obama administration and current senior advisor on COVID-19 to the Biden administration Andy Slavitt! Andy, host of the podcast IN THE BUBBLE, answers our pandemic policy questions with detail and expertise, and then helps us give advice on dealing with a coworker who believes in dangerous conspiracy theories, the murky ethics of infidelity, and discovering that your friend is a plagiarist. We've never had a more topical guest! It was a January Watch Party on Patreon last week! We watched Tonya Harding's "30 on 30" along with some of the most gorgeous (and infamous) figure skating routines of all time. And we had a LOT to say about it. Did you miss out? Join us for new episodes every Friday only on Patreon! Need any more incentive to join? Coming up on the 29th it's Carriage House Book Club with Brit Bennett's THE VANISHING HALF. patreon.com/askronna Could the start of 2021 be any more exciting in The Carriage House? Yes, it can! We're so excited to announce our very first "Ask Ronna with Ronna (& Bryan) LIVE SHOW! It's on Saturday, February 13th. Lots of details to come, but mark your calendars now.

63 - It's a Bummer with Conan O'Brien
We're back! After our little hiatus from the Free Feed we're excited to get going again...though (Bryan) might be a little TOO excited (Ronna's going to have to pull every string she has at the town council to fix that). Zoom scandals aside, we have reason to be excited. We've teased you for weeks about our huge guest for the new year, and we think we've delivered in a BIG way, excuse me. Joining us in The Carriage House this week is the one, the only, the legendary Conan O'Brien! Conan helps us give advice on bringing up hurt feelings with friends, dealing with a friend who has a questionable love life, being in love with your boss, and what, exactly, the world's best toilet paper is. Are you looking to pamper yourself in 2021? Join us on Patreon! In addition to an extra show every week, there are always other goodies thrown in as well. This week we'll be hosting a January Watch Party featuring some of the most famous (or infamous) figure skaters of all time. The grace! The beauty! The costumes! The scandal!

62 - Classic Cliffhangers: Only in 2020
We made it! The last Free Feed of the year! We can't thank you all enough. We appreciate when you say that we helped you get through a rough year, but, really, it's us who should be thanking YOU. 2020 was a horror show, yes, but it also gave us some, shall we say, "interesting" cliffhangers...cliffhangers that could have only happened in this monstrosity of a year. So, without further ado, we present to you the next installment of Classic Cliffhangers: "Only in 2020!" Join us as we relive a sticky situation in the bedroom, a stuffed cat that may have been used to hit on a woman's husband, a klepto with a spelling problem, and a downstairs smoker who made quarantine a smelly hellscape. And don't forget you can watch the ENTIRE episode on our YouTube channel at youtube.com/askronna As we mentioned, this is the last Free Feed of the year, and next week we'll be taking a short break...but when we come back fresh on January 12th, we'll have a guest so big it'll knock your socks off. And of course if you want to join us on Patreon (and why wouldn't you, excuse me), now's the time! Our break from the Free Feed won't stop us from releasing ALL NEW episodes on Patreon this week, next week, and beyond!

61 - Olfactorily Assaulted with Gayle Rankin
Ronna's house looks beautiful in ANY season, excuse me...but there really is nothing like seeing it wrapped in a blanket of fresh snow. Marblehead is stunningly gorgeous after this week's snowfall, even if (Bryan) needs a moment to 'settle his feathers' before he can fully appreciate it. And speaking of being appreciative, how blessed are we to welcome Gayle Rankin to The Carriage House this week! You know her from PERRY MASON, GLOW, HER SMELL, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, and more. Gayle helps us give advice on balancing work and parental caregiving while also being the parent of a newborn, what to do when your best friend wants you to leave your boyfriend to be with her, and how to tell a coworker they smell bad. And you'll definitely want to join us on Patreon once you hear one of the most BONKERS cliffhangers we've had in a while. Speaking of Patreon, you'll all continue to get a new show every Friday through the holidays (we're especially excited to give you a little Christmas surprise this week). As for the Free Feed, we'll be taking a break during the first week of January, but we'll be back on January 12th with a guest too big to be believed. Stay tuned! The Ask Ronna Coffee Gift Boxes are officially sold out! We hope you were able to snag one! Of course, Ask Ronna Coffee is still available, and, if you fell in love with the Ronnukah Blend, we have good news: while you won't be able to buy it individually after December 31st, you can still get it as part of a subscription if you sign up before the end of the month! Subscribers save $3 a bag and can cancel at any time.

60 - Eighty Dozen Christmas Cookies with SuChin Pak & Kulap Vilaysack
Ronna is absolutely glowing today. Maybe it's her fresh cut peonies, or maybe it's the oil from all the latkes she's been making. In any event, everyone in The Carriage House is in high spirits! And what better way to keep things festive than with our second week in a row of having TWO guests! This week we welcome SuChin Pak and, back for her second time in The Carriage House, excuse me, the absolutely delightful Kulap Vilaysack! SuChin and Kulap are hosts of the new podcast ADD TO CART, a subversive take on consumerism that digs into what we buy and what it says about who we are. They're also here to help us answer questions on letting your nanny go during the pandemic, baking 80 dozen (!!) cookies for your possibly unappreciative friends, and helping your partner continue to feel eager on the journey to sobriety. A little housekeeping: while we'll continue to have new episodes on Patreon through the holidays, we'll be taking a little break on the Free Feed during the first week of January. But when we come back on January 12th, we'll be joined in The Carriage House by a HUGE guest. 2021 is starting off with a bang in Marblehead, we can promise you. Want one of our GORGEOUS Ask Ronna Coffee Gift Boxes (as featured in Vulture, excuse me)? You better get one quick! Supplies are limited and they're selling fast. Go to askronnacoffee.com and get them while you still can. Join us in the Patreon Carriage House for bonus episodes every Friday. A Sauna Privileges membership gets you video podcasts, and much more.

59 - Four Hours, Two States with Kara Klenk & Liza Treyger
We have a very rare treat in The Carriage House this week, as we're joined by not one but TWO special guests, though Ronna has some trepidation in having two nice Jewish girls on to talk about murder (isn't that against the Talmud?). But when the guests are this witty and fabulous, who cares! This week we welcome the multi-hyphenate talents of Kara Klenk and Liza Treyger! You know them from their stand-up specials on Comedy Central and Netflix , but they're joining forces for "That's Messed Up: An SVU Podcast" that breaks down episodes of "Law and Order: SVU" and dives into the true crimes they're based on. Kara and Liza are here to help us give advice on breaking up with your first love, whether to bring your estranged father into the lives of your children, and being in love with your best friend. As you heard on the Ronnukuh episode, we have a new sponsor for the month! Rare Tea Cellar in Chicago specializes in the finest and rarest tea and gourmet ingredients in the world, and they've teamed up with Ronna (& Bryan) to curate some special gift sets just for you! Do you want to make your home chef feel like a Michelin star chef? Visit rareteacellar.com and use the offer code BRYAN for 20% off your first order.

58 - Ronnukah 2020!
Ronnukah, O Ronnukah, come light the menorah! It's finally here! We've been busy for weeks curating a list of our favorite gifts for the holiday season, and we think you won't be disappointed. If you don't have any gift ideas after this, then we don't know what to tell you, excuse me. Our suggestions run the gamut from the simplest and most inexpensive of presents all the way to our fantasy gifts (it won't be long before Ronna is cruising around the Vineyard in her new Land Rover). Don't forget, this is a "scratch and sniff" episode! Look for some trivia questions about the episode to be posted later. Answer them correctly for a chance to win some VERY exciting gifts.

57 - Classic Cliffhangers: Family Matters
Now, wait a minute. Are we Thankful. How did we get this far? There were moments we thought we wouldn't get here, but we kept going, and, with some hard work and a LOT of support from you, we're still going strong over one year later AND we're able to bring you the best selling Hanukkah blend ever! Talk about a lot to be thankful for, excuse me. This past summer's installment of Classic Cliffhangers was such a hit we wanted to bring you Volume 2 for the holiday! These cliffhangers were mentioned on the Free Feed, but only answered on Patreon, and they are, as (Bryan) puts it, a real "Dooze McBooze." Classic Cliffhangers: Vol. 2 involves, appropriately enough for Thanksgiving, problems with family. We tackle four of our most outrageous letters, including finding your cousin's husband on Tinder, the most insensitively decorated powder room in all of Canada, being stalked by your wife on your home security camera, and, maybe our favorite of all time, discovering your preachy father-in-law secretly smoking your used cigarette butts. If this doesn't want to make you join us in The Carriage House every Friday on Patreon, we don't know what will! patreon.com/askronna And, as our Thanksgiving gift to you, the ENTIRE episode will be available to watch on our YouTube channel at youtube.com/askronna . Enjoy! As we mentioned, the Ronnukah Blend is a HUGE hit! And our Ask Ronna Coffee gift boxes are as delightful as can be, and they'd make an amazing gift for the coffee lover in your life. Visit askronnacoffee.com for all the details!

56 - 90 Day Cat Fiancé with Lennon Parham
2020 may have been a trying year (to say the least, excuse me), but the end of it is shaping up to be a VERY exciting time in The Carriage House! We're getting ready to end the year with a bang, and who better to join us as we kick it all off than actress and TV maestra Lennon Parham! You know Lennon from her work on PLAYING HOUSE, BLESS THIS MESS, VEEP, WOMP IT UP and so much more. Lennon helps us answer questions about dealing with family members who don't share your politics, apartment searching, and being a newly single parent looking for ways to balance responsibility and self-care during the pandemic. As we mentioned, there's SO much happening in The Carriage House in the next month! First off, the Ronnukuh Blend is here! It's a stunning organic chocolate mocha inspired by the gelt enjoyed during the Festival of Lights. Available for a limited time, it's not to be missed! Get it TODAY at askronnacoffee.com It’s also just about time for Eight Days of Ronnukuh! Our special episode is on December 1st, so be sure to send us your gifting questions and suggestions before then. This year's event will prove to be bigger and better than ever!

55 - Classy, Bougie, Ratchet with Dan Savage
This past week has felt like a MONTH, excuse me. We couldn't be happier now, but we recorded this episode the day before the race was called. We were feeling good, but still on pins and needles. What better way to pass the time as we awaited results in The Carriage House than with our very special guest, author, journalist, activist, and internationally renowned columnist Dan Savage! Dan, no stranger to giving advice, of course, helped us answer questions about age differences in relationships, befriending a former lover's ex after a tragedy, and how to cope with your child being friends with someone whose parents are incredibly controlling. We have SO many exciting things happening in the next month that are certain to make your holidays a bit brighter. You'll all find out in due time, but, if you want exclusive access to what promises to be a month to remember, become a Carriage House insider and join us on Patreon! Carriage House Members and those with Sauna Privileges will be the first to know. With the weather turning is there a better time to try our exclusive Carriage House Blend and Shades of Vanilla coffees? We think not. You #coffeeandvoted, and now it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Remember you can subscribe and save $3 per bag. Domestic shipping is free and you can cancel at any time. askronnacoffee.com

54 - Best Friend Taste Test with Sabrina Jalees
We admit it...we're on edge. Today is SUCH an important day. We voted (several times in Ronna's case) and (Bryan) is downing Advil and Prozac to get through the evening. We figured it was too fraught to have an American on the show today, so instead we have a delightful Canadian! We welcome actor, comedian, writer, producer (talk about 'multi-hyphenate,' excuse me) Sabrina Jalees! You know her from CAROL'S SECOND ACT on CBS as well from her stand-up specials and impressive list of writing and producing credits (SEARCH PARTY, HARLEY QUINN, CANADA'S GOT TALENT...the list goes on). Sabrina is here to help us give advice on navigating a "Groundhog Day" relationship, proper grief etiquette, and reading plays at home. VOTE. And then be sure to snap a selfie with your #coffeeandvote sticker and tag us on Instagram! Let the world know you have both a sense of civic responsibility and fabulous taste in coffee. askronnacoffee.com

Her new album, A GIRL LIKE ME: LETTERS TO MY LOVERS, is out now! After a quick catch up with (Bryan)'s Lobsterman situation (he wants to open up the relationship with an unlikely third person), Peppermint helps us give advice on fashion, sibling rivalry, and accidentally posting nudes on Instagram. It's ONE week until the election! If you have a plan to vote, NOW is the time to do it!

52 - Cheetos Can Be Self-Care with Cody Rigsby
Now, wait a minute. We're a bit out of breath because we had to do a quick 20 minutes on our Peloton right before the show. But we're warmed up and ready to welcome Ronna's personal Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby to The Carriage House! After a quick report on what's sure to be a lawsuit from Yadvina (maybe Ronna does need an HR person after all), Cody helps us give advice on long distance relationships, anxiety dreams, and the art of the dick pic. Of course Ask Ronna Coffee is still a hit. Of course you should subscribe to get $3 off per bag with free domestic shipping (cancel at any time). And our #coffeeandvote stickers are now shipping!

51 - Shtetl Clairvoyance with Ari Shapiro
Could the news be any crazier these days? Really? Excuse me? Not possible, but this week we are as up to the minute as we can possibly be thanks to our very special guest, host of ALL THINGS CONSIDERED on NPR, Ari Shapiro! After a quick update on (Bryan)'s fall TV favorites (please heed Wendy Williams' advice and protect yourself from the CORNOVA virus), Ari helps us answer questions about decorating your home on a budget, finding a more welcoming place to live, and whether or not you should hang out with your masseuse socially.

Now, wait a minute. We've reached a true milestone this week. It's our 50th show on the Free Feed! And have we got a treat for you. We've had some big guests lately, but now we're moving into huge. Who's worthy of being our 50th guest? None other than comedy icon and director extraordinaire Paul Feig! Whether it's TV ("Freaks and Geeks," "The Office," "Arrested Development") or film ("Bridesmaids," "The Heat,”), he's made his mark on American comedy. Mr. Feig joins us in The Carriage House to help us give advice on how many times is too many to move for your husband's job, planning something special for a proposal, and gift ideas for someone about to undergo medical treatment. Many of you know Paul Feig has his own brand of gin, Artingstall's, and, from it's packaging to its taste, it's spectacular. To help celebrate our 50th show, we want you to get inspired and create a gin cocktail just for us! Post your Ronna, Bryan or Ask Ronna (& Bryan) inspired beverage to IG. When we get enough of them, we'll choose our favorite. Be sure to tag @askronna so we know to look out for it! Do you have a plan to vote yet? If not, make one!

49 - How Often Should I Wash My Sheets with Clarissa Ward
Wait a minute. There's no way you're ready for this. Clearly we've risen to a level of quality you can't handle. For this week's episode, we put on our newscaster hair and brushed up on world affairs as we welcome CNN Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward to The Carriage House! Her new book, ON ALL FRONTS, covers her life on the front lines of today's power centers and hot zones. Clarissa takes a break from her very important work to help us answer questions on what to do with your bridal shower gifts if your engagement is called off, what skincare products are good at addressing prolonged mask wearing, going back to your old job if you hate your new one, and how often to clean your linens and towels. If you read our Instagram post this past weekend (and, really, as a listener, you should already be subscribed) then you know the good news: we're officially VERIFIED!! Which means you're also verified! This is a collective win for The Carriage House, and we can't thank you enough. Three words: Ask Ronna Coffee. The perfect vessel to drink it in? Three more words: Kiss Kiss Mug.  They're both flying off the shelves.

In addition to her podcast WILL YOU ACCEPT THIS ROSE?, she also has a new book called LITTLE MISS LITTLE COMPTON that is an absolutely delightful read!

The wait. Is. Over. AS SEEN IN THE CARRIAGE HOUSE, it's the Kiss Kiss Mug! The IDEAL drinking vessel for your Ask Ronna Coffee, or any other beverage, excuse me. Sip from this gorgeous mug while you listen to the podcast, curl your hands around it while you enjoy a good gossip, or swirl your beverage as you plot your next revenge.

Now, wait a minute. How excited are we about today's guest? Ronna is popping out of her chair and (Bryan) is a pitter patter. We're so thrilled to welcome expert baker, season one champion of the GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF, and author of the new cookbook ONE TIN BAKES, Edd Kimber! After some light banter about parallel parking and the differences between Darwinian and Lamarckian evolution, Edd joins us to give advice on what to do when your boyfriend's demanding job begins to get in the way of your relationship, how to celebrate your 30th birthday in style during a pandemic, and how to delicately tell your boyfriend that his artwork doesn't belong on your walls.  (Bryan) is giving us "lobster eyes," which must mean that he wants us to get our very own Harry's Home-Delivered Lobsters t-shirt!

You know him from INSECURE on HBO, his stand-up specials, and his new hit podcast MY MOMMA TOLD ME. Langston helps us answer questions about dealing with family members who believe in QAnon conspiracy theories, the challenges of a May/December romance, and what the best meat thermometers are.

45 - Classic Cliffhangers: Carnal Knowledge
Here we are with ANOTHER Carriage House first. Free Feed listeners know that we read a cliffhanger at the end of each episode to be answered on that week's Patreon show. Now, for the first time ever, we're releasing some of our most outrageous cliffhanger questions and answers to the Free Feed! Talk about Free Feed Behavior, excuse me. For our first volume of Classic Cliffhangers, we're really earning our "'E' for explicit" rating (though Ronna might not be very pleased with the staff that compiled it all). It's "Carnal Knowledge," and these are the most hot under the collar questions we've ever received, including the dilemma of the molested minister, the massage table mishap, the STI Guy, and, maybe our most risqué question ever, the saga of the SLUTZ. As if you needed more proof that you're missing out every Friday, this is it! Come join us in the Carriage House on Patreon!

44. What Would It Take For Me To Get In Your Tub with Kristian Bruun
Pour your coffee and put on your tap shoes and short shorts, because we've got a lot to cover in The Carriage House this week! After a follow-up from the (regional) flight attendant with the worst grandma and another from the confused friend with the flaky acquaintance, we welcome, “Ready or Not," Kristian Bruun to the podcast! You know him from "Orphan Black" and the show "Carter" on IMDb TV. Kristian is here to help us answer questions about taking time off to get perspective on a very complicated relationship, how to deal with a flaky but possibly vengeful landscaper, how to ask someone you barely know if you can use their gorgeous marble bathtub, and how to talk to girls when you're a ten year old boy...who also happens to be Ronna's nephew. If you're not following @AskRonna on social media, first of all, how dare you? Secondly, follow us! Help Ronna get that blue checkmark. When it comes to Ask Ronna Coffee, we'd "rather be looking at it, than looking for it” as Ronna likes to say! A great way to make sure you always have it is to get a subscription!

43. Thank You for Calling Gap Kids with Sasheer Zamata
(Bryan) may be a bit under the weather today, but it's nothing a little Tylenol and red wine can't handle (though Yadvina is standing by with the neti pot, just in case). Once (Bryan) is breathing easy, it's on to an absolutely delightful time in The Carriage House! This week we welcome SNL alum and star of SPREE and the upcoming WOKE (with Lamorne Morris, excuse me) Sasheer Zamata! Sasheer helps us give out advice on whether to buy an Airstream Travel Trailer, how to navigate the complexities of a good friend’s role in your wedding party, and what to do with a very personal message from a friend's family member...two years after it was written. It seems Harry the Lobsterman isn't selling many lobsters these days...or any lobsters, for that matter. But he's staying flexible, and he's willing to adapt while he keeps his eye on the prize. So he's now in the t-shirt business…with an eye to the lobster business! Visit teepublic.com/stores/askronna to see the wide selection of t-shirts on offer. Get yours today and help a man realize his dream of home-delivered lobsters around the world...or at least the Marblehead metro area. Unlike Harry's Lobsters, Ask Ronna Coffee is a huge hit! And now all shipments come with a little added bonus of Ronna's Kiss Kiss stickers. They're adorable! Get your subscription today at askronnacoffee.com and save $3 per bag, and, of course, shipping is always free on domestic coffee orders.

We loved hearing from all of you, whether it was about whiskey or dessert or books or Chilly Witches (keep those coming, by the way!). But now it's time to clean up the mess in the Carriage House and welcome actor, comedian, and prolific podcast host Jon Gabrus! Jon helps us give advice on how to handle a sister who's struggling with mental illness, what to do when an opinionated friend disapproves of your relationship, and how to stop the waking terror that is Tigger the Asshole Cat. PLUS, join us this Friday on Patreon when Jon Gabrus becomes our VERY FIRST guest to crossover from the free feed to Patreon! He’ll put his “Action Boyz” skills to work, and help us discuss this week's Quarantine International Film Festival (QUIFF) summer blockbusters JAWS and TERMINATOR 2! Just $5 a month, and $10 gets you SAUNA PRIVILEGES aka access to the video podcast! $2 from every Sauna Privileges membership will once again go to World Central Kitchen, who are helping to feed people and aid workers devastated by the explosion in Beirut.

Sit back, relax with a nice cup of coffee (you know where to get it), or maybe even a Stone-fruit Sangria, and let us share all our ideas with you for getting through quarantine with a level of luxury that only Ronna Glickman (& Bryan) can provide. We'll cover it all, from daily rituals to recipes to accessories to home-delivered lobsters...and everything in between. And be sure to listen carefully and follow us on IG, as we have some AMAZING giveaways that we're sending to a few lucky (and attentive) listeners. Kiki? Oui oui! As if that wasn't enough, excuse me, we're doing something we've NEVER done before...we're releasing video of the ENTIRE episode for FREE on our YouTube channel! If you want to see what Ronna (& Bryan) are recommending for the COVID Kiki, go to youtube.com/askronna and indulge! And be sure to follow us on Instagram.

39 - A Little Va-Va-Va Voom with Naomi Ekperigin & Andy Beckerman
It's chaos at The Carriage House! Ronna's driveway is being repaved, (Bryan) can't stand the noise, Jürgen and the Lobsterman might come to full on fisticuffs, and Ronna is livid about not having a blue checkmark on Instagram...and where's a Googler when you need one? Luckily, with the help of Kris Kristofferson fantasies and the oil rig sex appeal of Stellan Skarsgård, we're able to pull ourselves together before we welcome a pair of absolutely delightful guests, from the podcast COUPLE'S THERAPY, Andy Beckerman and Naomi Ekperigin! They help us give advice on a range of prickly problems, including whether or not to stay in a relationship that needs some va-va-va voom, what happens when you find out your son is in an open marriage, and dealing with a needy dog during family mealtime. It's been a long year, we know, and we think it's time for a little midsummer celebration. Do you have any plans next Tuesday August 4th? No? Then let's have a kiki...a COVID Kiki in The Carriage House! Ronna (& Bryan) want to share the details and finer points of their social distancing, and they want to hear from you! How are you getting through quarantine? Food? Drinks? Recipes? Music? Activities? Online buys? Let us know what's giving you that extra boost. Send us mail at askronna@gmail.com or post and tag us on social media, and we'll share all our ideas at the kiki. Will there be special guests? Probably! Will there be gifts and giveaways? Of course! Don't miss it! Please help Ronna get the blue checkmark she deserves. Be sure to follow @askronna on Instagram, if you haven't already, and tell your friends!

38 - The Worst Grandma with Lamorne Morris
Is Marblehead in the midst of a summer crime wave? The smashed window of (Bryan)'s BMW rental (pardon me) seems to suggest so. And we thought the only thing we had to worry about here were the lobster fighting rings. Not to worry, though. It's Ronna's BMW guy, Jürgen, to the rescue! Then we're joined in The Carriage House by none other than actor, comedian, TV star, and now MOVIE star Lamorne Morris! You know him from NEW GIRL, but he's also got an upcoming Hulu series called WOKE, not to mention the #1 movie on Netflix right now DESPERADOS (featuring one or two other familiar faces). Lamorne helps us grapple with some particularly tough issues this week, like dealing with a flaky friend, how to handle an estranged grandma, and how to stand up to a belligerent guest. Want more of Ronna (& Bryan)? Join us on Patreon every Friday for bonus episodes! We've got the Carriage House Book Club on July 31st (Sidney Sheldon's THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT), and we're also continuing our Quarantine International Film Festival (QUIFF).

37 - Take a 'Butt Breath' with Paul Scheer
I think we determined long ago that this was the "mogul" podcast, excuse me. And we're not disappointing this week with our special guest, actor, comedian, writer, producer, and podcaster Paul Scheer! It was a fabulous holiday at Ronna's house in the Vineyard. (Bryan) was so well behaved as a guest in the art barn that he might actually be invited back! But for now we're all back in Marblehead, and Paul joins us in The Carriage House to give advice on how to make a coronavirus diverted wedding in a public park not feel like a consolation prize, what to do when your roommate is terrible at washing his hands during the pandemic, and how to navigate the delicate terrain of a family member who follows porn accounts on Twitter but doesn't realize everyone can see who he follows, including his own family. Ask Ronna Coffee is still flying off the shelves! Get yours at askronnacoffee.com And, as always, join us at patreon.com/askronna for a bonus show every Friday. $5/month gets you into The Carriage House, and $10/month gets you SAUNA PRIVILEGES — our VIDEO podcast tier! $2 from every Sauna Privileges membership in July will go to Color of Change, whose mission is to “move decision makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people, and all people.

36 - Quarantreats with “Hungry Girl” Lisa Lillien
No. Absolutely not. You're not ready for this. Our very special guest this week is entrepreneur, podcast host, New York Times best-selling author thirteen times over (pardon me), and creator of the Hungry Girl brand Lisa Lillien! After we dive into our quarantine indulgences (“The Price is Right,” dreaming about cycling through the south of France, and the auras of Steve Harvey and Dr. Phil), Lisa helps us give advice on the right time to disclose your pregnancy during a job interview process and the best seafood to have delivered. Plus, something we haven't had in a while: a caller! We help her with the thorny issue of an in-law growing more and more impatient (and angry) over quarantine rules and social distancing with the grandbaby. And once the advice is doled out, Lisa gives us a few of her favorite quarantine recipes, like the Big Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pie in a Mug. Yes, please! How good is Ask Ronna Coffee? All beans have been personally fingered by Ronna herself! Get yours at askronnacoffee.com And, as always, join us at patreon.com/askronna for a bonus show every Friday. $5/month gets you into The Carriage House, and $10/month gets you SAUNA PRIVILEGES — our VIDEO podcast tier! $2 from every Sauna Privileges membership in July will go to Color of Change, whose mission is to “move decision makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people, and all people.

35 - Don't Scam Yourself Out of That Lady Box with Laci Mosley

It's finally arrived! After MONTHS of experimenting and tasting and quaffing, we're ready to share with you the fruits of our labor: the official Ask Ronna Coffee blends are here! And as if that wasn't enough to make this week's episode a must-listen, we've also got writer, actor, speaker, and activist Brandon Kyle Goodman with us in The Carriage House!
