Now wait a minute. (Bryan) was kicked out of his hotel in Prague. He doesn't really want to talk about it, even though Ronna is highly amused by the whole thing ("and now we close the circle, Mr. Safi"). But if there's one person who can change (Bryan)'s mood for the better, it's this week's guest. We're thrilled to be joined by comedian and entertainer extraordinaire Michelle Collins!

Is it all a plot to get (Bryan) and the guest to finally bury the hatchet? It may be! Joining (Bryan) in The Carriage House this week is none other than our dear, dear friend and talent Naomi Ekperigin! Naomi (& Bryan) give some advice on dating a friend of a friend, communicating with an ex during the entirety of a 20 year marriage, and sharing dog custody after a break-up.

Now wait a minute. If you joined us at the Lonely Hearts Live Show this past Sunday, you already know how much we LOVE Valentine's Day. This week, along with a Carriage House Catch-Up, we thought it would be fun to revisit some of our classic love related cliffhangers from Patreons past. In this installment, we look back on Derek the "masc tormentor," the Danny/Gennaro/Tony Grindr ménage-à-trois, the possibly Scandinavian "Miserable in Love," and our "ostensibly straight" narcissist, who we REALLY let have it. Ronna (& Bryan) listen to their past advice to see if it still holds up (spoiler alert: of course it does). Throw in some real talk about Tom Brady and Charles Barkley, and you've got a show that's willing to show off its spectacular crack! Did you miss the live show this past Sunday? You missed a gem! Luckily, you can still buy a ticket to watch a recording of the proceedings in its entirety! We've got songs. We've got games. We've got Trixie Mattel, Naomi, and Andy!

It's a classic Carriage House Catch-Up this week with Ronna (& Bryan). (Bryan)'s getting over a cold and the only thing that can help, apparently, is $500 cash, though Dr. Glickman has a second opinion on that particular treatment. But these amazing questions could also cure what ails you!

Now wait a minute. There's a reason (Bryan)'s screaming "hip hip hooray" at the top of his lungs. We've got a repeat customer this week. When we first met him a couple of years ago we knew he'd be big, but we didn't know just how big, pardon me. This guy is a real bopper. We're so happy to welcome back to The Carriage House none other than TV star, dancer extraordinaire, and the King of Peloton Cody Rigsby! Cody joins us on this extra long Free Feed to give advice on a tricky job referral and a parent inserting themselves into what was going to be a solo vacation.Top it off with a cliffhanger so infuriating that Ronna (& Bryan) can't help but start answering it, and you've got yourself an episode worth traveling ronnameters for!

Now wait a minute. It's not everyday we have a national treasure in The Carriage House, but you better believe we do this week, pardon me. After a quick style guide addendum from Naomi Ekperigin (which you better commit it to memory, honey), we're joined by none other than author, actor, and all around fabulous man John Hodgman! You can catch John on tour beginning this weekend, excuse me, with a live version of his hit podcast JUDGE JOHN HODGMAN. Can't see him on tour? Then listen to the pod wherever you get your podcasts. This week we've got a follow-up letter for the ages, so prepare yourselves as John helps us give advice to Kid Hater in Kansas. That's right...BROOKE IS BACK, and this letter is OUT. OF. CONTROL.

We're back! It's a new year and a new season here in The Carriage House, and we're raring (roaring?) to go. And, really, could we have asked for a more fun guest to start the year, excuse me? Joining us this week is the co-host of one of our favorite podcasts, BITCH SESH. It's Danielle Schneider! After some Real Housewives chat (obviously), Danielle helps us give advice on a long distance relationship and a possible pity invitation to be in a bridal party.

Now wait a minute. We've got one more week off until we return with all new episodes on January 17th, but we've got a special treat for you this week. It's another "feed drop," this time from the fabulous new podcast from Reboot, THE JEWISH BIZARRE. Dig into bloody murders, rioting mothers, anarchist parties, and pseudoscience; everything you never learned in Hebrew school and that your rabbi still doesn't want you to know. Join Dr. Eddy Portnoy of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, Dr. Tony Michels of UW Madison, and some other host (we're not sure what she's really adding to the proceedings, frankly) for a discussion on the strangest corners of Jewish history. Look for it wherever you get your podcasts! And we'll see you NEXT WEEK for ALL NEW EPISODES on the Free Feed! Sponsors: ZocDoc helps you search, find, and book the right doctor for you!

Yes. we're still on break for another week, but we've got a New Years treat for you! As you may know, our dear, dear friends Kulap Vilaysack and SuChin Pak host their own podcast ADD TO CART, and if you're not listening to this show, we don't know what to tell you. It's fabulous, and we wanted to do a "feed drop," as the podcast industry calls it, pardon me, to share one particular episode with you. If you loved Kulap and SuChin when they were on Ask Ronna, then you'll love Ronna as a special guest on Add To Cart. Enjoy! Join comedian-writer-director Kulap Vilaysack and veteran journalist SuChin Pak, in a subversive take on consumerism. Each week, they have honest, revealing (sometimes TMI) conversations about all the big and little things they're adding to, or removing from, their carts. They decide what's worth the monetary/emotional investment, and what's not. From beauty products and health trends, to celebrities and philosophies they're passionate about, our hosts dig into anything we buy into and what it says about who we are. In this episode, Ronna dishes on the most gorgeous and ballsy L.A. art Ku and Su have yet to see. Plus, she's getting rejuvenated at a retreat that's as incredible as its price tag.

We know, we know. We said we were taking a holiday break from the Free Feed...but we wanted to give you a little taste of what you're missing over on Patreon. As a post-holiday treat, here's last week's Patreon episode for you to enjoy. And if you're missing us during our Free Feed break, there's NEVER been a better time to join us on Patreon. We've got ALL NEW EPISODES EVERY FRIDAY...even during our break. patreon.com/askronna From Patreon 150: It's Christmas Eve...Eve! Look, we know you have to bundle up, go get in the car, look at the traffic, and figure out how long it'll take you to get out of town (and then add an hour), but you better believe we're going to give you an incredible episode before you go. First off is a cliffhanger about how and when to tell a small child about an estranged grandparent. Then we have a ball helping a young doctor in med school compile his residency rank list. We're biased to Boston, excuse me, but what about Chicago, San Jose, or Minneapolis? Or even Columbus? Listen and find out! The December Social Club / Holiday Kiki is tomorrow, and we're beside ourselves with excitement. We hope to see you there! But if you're not a member, or didn't buy one of our fabulous gift boxes, we have good news for you: we're now accepting members for January! Join before January 1st at arsocialclub.com for an invite to the first Kiki of 2023.
We did it! It's our 150th Episode, if you can believe it. We can't tell you how grateful we are to still be a part of your lives after all this time, and we'll be here for 150 more episodes...or until (Bryan) breaks out of The Carriage House like the Kool-Aid Man. After some quick follow-ups, including one from over 2 years ago, pardon me, we give advice on avoiding making comparisons to others when you're a new mother, how to deal with a neighbor who's probably a grifter, and navigating living with an ex 10 years after the break-up. It's a fabulous way to end the season! Speaking of, this is our Season 3 finale, so we'll be taking a little break from the Free Feed. But we'll be back in January with all new episodes. And of course if you miss us too much, remember that we'll be posting ALL NEW EPISODES on Patreon every Friday throughout our break.

Joining in The Carriage House is actor and comedian Jeff Hiller! You know Jeff from literally a million things, but you can see him now on SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE on HBO Max and AMERICAN HORROR STORY: NYC on Hulu. Jeff helps us give advice on a burning karaoke jealousy (an INSTANT classic Ask Ronna letter), how to embrace changes in a friendship over time, and tips on checking grumpy behavior at 31. December's AR Social Club may be closed, but we're now accepting members for January! Dry January's for the birds!

Joining us in The Carriage House is our new friend and comedian extraordinaire Chris Estrada! You can catch Chris on his acclaimed Hulu series THIS FOOL, which was just renewed for a second season, pardon me. He's an utter delight! Chris joins us to give advice on a smelly carpool mess, a professional name dilemma, and a circle of gift-giving friends caught in a Triangle of Sadness.

Now wait a minute. If you thought Ronnukah was our last hurrah of the year, you've got another think coming, excuse me. We couldn't be happier to welcome a living legend into The Carriage House this week as we're joined by the delightful and hilarious Patton Oswalt! Of course you know Patton as one of the most gifted comedians working today (his new Netflix special WE ALL SCREAM is streaming now). And if you needed a reminder, his acting resume is a mile long, from THE KING OF QUEENS to RATATOUILLE (a Ronna favorite) to his most recent award-winning film I LOVE MY DAD. Patton helps us give advice on some major brother-in-law drama, talking about an untraditional relationship with friends, and throwing a party in a co-op. Ronnukah was a huge success, pardon me. We've heard from so many of you already that you've added Ronna (& Bryan)'s suggestions to your collective carts. But we couldn't be happier with our own Ronnukah offerings this season, including a gorgeous personalized Kinto tumbler, ultra luxe drinking chocolate with Irish Cream and Créme de Menthe, Ronna's Custom Holiday Glühwein, and more! Find it all at ronnukah.com And, needless to say, December's AR Social Club Kiki will be one for the books. Join before December 6th to get an invite to the holiday party of the year.

Because an AR Club box would make an excellent gift (obviously), we're doing something different and revealing what comes inside December's box early: you'll be getting a special champagne that redefines holiday luxury along with TWO stunning champagne flutes from which to drink it. And for those who've asked us for a non-alcoholic option, we're offering a version of this club box with an alcohol free champagne.

Now wait a minute. Ronna may still have her Halloween nails, and (Bryan)'s can barely see straight from the sugar hangover he's suffering from, but none of this takes away from the absolutely STELLAR guest we have this week, pardon me.

Then we're beyond thrilled to welcome legendary comedian, writer, and activist Lizz Winstead to The Carriage House!

Ronna might be in a mood, and (Bryan) may or may not be the recipient of fox eye surgery, but it really doesn't matter because of the caliber of guest we've got in The Carriage House this week, excuse me. We're so pleased to welcome writer and former executive editor at TEEN VOGUE Samhita Mukhopadhyay! She's the author of OUTDATED: WHY DATING IS RUINING YOUR LOVE LIFE and co-editor of the anthology NASTY WOMEN: FEMINISM, RESISTANCE, AND REVOLUTION IN TRUMP'S AMERICA.

With the way Ronna (& Bryan) start this episode, you'd think we're on Patreon, but no! It's just time for a good old fashioned Carriage House Catch-Up! (Bryan)'s in need of a rejuvenating vajazzle after a night of double tequila shots and hot dogs, but that won't stop Ronna and him from dishing out their always fabulous advice. First they give their two cents on being romantic as a 29 year old with dentures. Then it's on to some advice about a "DTR" conversation, and finally they share their thoughts on an issue involving remote work and...camping? This month's AR Social Club Spoo-kiki is going to be an absolute blast, pardon me. Did you miss the chance to sign-up? Well, you can still join us for November! Visit arsocialclub.com today!

This week's guest has got the stuff, pardon me; a real thinker, no two ways about it. We are beyond thrilled to welcome to The Carriage House our dear friend, playwright, and podcast host Liza Powel O'Brien! Her fabulous podcast, SIGNIFICANT OTHERS, is available wherever you get your podcasts, and if you're not listening to it, we don't know what to tell you. Where else can you learn about Mary Todd Lincoln's shopping addiction? Liza joins us to give advice to a motley crew of letter writers. First it's a battle royale between sisters-in-law married to twins, then we hear from a book club that's been hijacked by a baby, and finally we give advice to someone outraged that their friend has stopped giving money to NPR and has, instead, started supporting shows on (gasp!) Patreon. We're now accepting members for the November AR Social Club!

Joining us in The Carriage House for his SECOND appearance, pardon me, is none other than star baker and our dear, dear friend Edd Kimber! Of course you know Edd as the winner of the first season of THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF, but he's also got a new book out this week called SMALL BATCH BAKES.

This week we find (Bryan) in an absolutely wonderful mood (as is Ronna, of course), and, with a guest as delightful as this, there's really no doubt why, excuse me. Joining us in The Carriage House is actor, comedian, writer, and podcast host Andy Daly! You know him from only about a million things, like the brilliant show REVIEW (now on Paramount Plus), EASTBOUND & DOWN, SILICON VALLEY, and much more. Andy helps us give advice on dealing with religious differences in a serious relationship, a rather serious request from an old high school acquaintance, and some tips on self-care. This is the last week to register for the October AR Social Club Kiki! Or should we say Spoo-kiki! It's going to be a Halloween spectacular not to be missed.

Now wait a minute. (Bryan) may have caught Ronna slinking through the streets of Marblehead like the luxurious jaguar that she is, but there's no time to wonder why (Bryan) was stalking her because we have GOT to get to this week's guest. Joining us in The Carriage House is internationally acclaimed author, poet, comedian, and public speaker ALOK! They help us give advice on finding platonic friendships in the gay community, and a couple of family issues, one involving a rift with a grandmother and the other dealing with family who still talk trash about your ex. This episode is so good it'll knock you over like a one-two punch from a kangaroo. The September Kiki, much like the fall, is coming fast. Want to join the most exclusive club around in time for October? You can! Visit arsocialclub.com and subscribe before October 1st to join us for what promises to be a Halloween to remember.
Now wait a minute. (Bryan) may be looking like the Virgin Mary, which reminds Ronna of her trip to Florence with Mr. Cleveland, but have we got a great guest this week or what? We're joined in The Carriage House by none other than actor, writer, and comedian Anthony Atamanuik! You know him as the orange one himself on THE PRESIDENT SHOW and his work on WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. He's also the co-host of a podcast called THE PHONEY AND CALL-Y SHOW with his good friend John Gemberling. Listen to it wherever you get your podcasts! Anthony joins us to give advice on a major work snafu, and two tricky neighbor situations, one involving smoked meat and the other involving a potentially parasitic personality.

Now wait a minute. This week's episode was recorded a few weeks ago, so we're coming to you from the time machine. (Bryan) was still hungover from the double debauchery of his birthday and the Social Club Kiki (leaky tops!), but if we know anything (and we do, pardon me), it's that this week's guest is worth the wait. Joining us in The Carriage House is none other than writer, actor, and comedian Peter Grosz! You know him from literally a million things, whether it's his classic commercials for Sonic, his work on VEEP and THE PRESIDENT SHOW, or his Emmy winning stint as a writer for THE COLBERT REPORT. You can also catch Peter in his monthly New York show WE FIXED IT at Caveat on the Lower East Side. This month's show is on September 9th! Peter joins us to give advice on making a high flying career change, dealing with a recluse neighbor, and a work crush that's going nowhere. An official Ask Ronna Coffee Kiki may be brewing! In the coming month or two we'll be making an announcement about it, but to make sure you're invited, become a a coffee subscriber today at askronnacoffee.com September's AR Social Club Member list is set, but it's not too late to become a member for October! If you know how much Ronna loves Halloween, then you also know we've got some serious plans in store for the club. Join us before October 1st to be invited! arsocialclub.com
Now wait a minute. Once again we have what the industry calls a "get" on the show this week. We're so excited to get to our guest that (Bryan) is (almost) willing to put aside his raging jealousy that Ronna's going to the Emmys this year, so let's get to it. Joining us in The Carriage House is none other than writer, producer, and creator of Marvel's SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW on Disney Plus Jessica Gao! Jessica joins us to give advice on dealing with a family member's socially unaware girlfriend, a problematic new grandparent, and some friendship drama revolving around a baby shower. August's AR Social Club Kiki is on Wednesday 8/31, and it's going to be one for the books. A White Party (get those linens pressed!) celebrating this month's drink selection: a trio of impeccable rosés. But remember, if you're not already a member you only have until 11:59pm ET Thursday 9/1 to join the AR Social Club for the month of September! arsocialclub.com
Now wait a minute. (Bryan) is coming to us from a beautiful location outside The Carriage House, but it's probably for the best (Ronna's still dealing with the Massachusetts Health Department because of his recent pool party). But we've got a FABULOUS guest with us this week. Joining us is none other than our dear, dear friend, comedian, and Ask Ronna superfan Gearóid Farrelly! He's appearing now at the Edinburgh Fringe through August 28th, and his Glamour Hammer Tour kicks off in Ireland on September 16th. Gearóid joins us to give advice on some brother-in-law baker drama, dealing with rejection after a promising first date, and whether it's tacky or not to open a gift registry for a housewarming. The countdown is coming to an end soon for those of you who want to join us for the September Social Club Kiki! Visit arsocialclub.com and subscribe before September 1st to be a member in good standing and start building your bar into the best around, excuse me.
Now wait a minute. Ronna may be feeling like a frisky feline after receiving feedback that she shouldn't sing on her own g.d. show, excuse me, but that doesn't change the fact that we've outdone ourselves yet AGAIN with our guest this week. Joining us in The Carriage House is none other than "it" girl, Emmy nominee, and star of HBO Max's HACKS Hannah Einbinder! Hannah joins us to give advice on dealing with a friend who can't seem to stop copying others, and a couple of etiquette questions on bachelorette parties and babysitting. August's AR Social Club is going to be DIVINE, pardon me. If you're not a member yet, a) what are you waiting for? and b) there's still time to join us in September! Just visit arsocialclub.com and subscribe before September 1st to be invited to September's Kiki. As an added bonus, one lucky Social Club Member in September will win a chance to appear in their very own segment on an episode of Ask Ronna! It's a prize we shouldn't even be handing out, excuse me, but for our club members, they deserve it. Luxurious club, luxurious rewards.
Hello, Dolly! Have we got a show this week or what? First, a disclaimer: we did this interview a couple of months ago, but we held on to it because we wanted to wait until the premiere of this guest's fabulous new show. And, truly, we've outdone ourselves yet again with the quality of stars that we're getting, pardon me. We're so excited to welcome to The Carriage House our dear friend D'Arcy Carden! Of course you know her from shows like THE GOOD PLACE and BARRY, but her new show, a television adaptation of A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, premieres on Amazon Prime this Friday August 12th! D'Arcy joins us to give advice on raising the issue of oral hygiene with a partner, a bonkers problem of animals attacking a London flat (a letter for the ages), and making friends with people who have different views and perspectives than yourself.
Now wait a minute. We don't think anyone saw this coming. (Bryan) is away today, and we've got a very special guest host...a real dark horse who's made the jump from guest to co-host to potential Carriage House Co-op Board President. It's our dear friend, writer and essayist Scarlett Curtis! Scarlett joins Ronna today to give advice on what to do with a sister who equates her cats to children, how to make friends after a move to a new neighborhood, and how to move on from a complicated relationship involving some VERY deep feelings.
It's a Carriage House Catch Up for the ages this week! Just Ronna (& Bryan) sharing their love together. After Ronna shows off more of her musical chops, and after a stern talking down to listeners who don't take Ronna (& Bryan)'s advice and yet write in for more, we're so excited to share Co-op Board President Josh Camson's Carriage House Style Guide! Read it, memorize it, and FOLLOW IT, excuse me. Then we give advice on finding a path to an elusive orgasm, not looking a gift "Wayne" in the mouth, and the best way to load a dishwasher. It's almost time for July's AR Social Club Kiki, a.k.a. (Bryan)'s Shampoo Buzz Hour. Members can join us on Sunday July 31 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT. Not a member yet? You'll definitely want to join us for August's Kiki. Be sure to visit arsocialclub.com and subscribe before August 1. Feeling left out of the Social Club because you're a teetotaler? There's always Ask Ronna Coffee! Gorgeous coffee awaits you, and summer is the perfect time to try Carriage House Blend or Shades of Vanilla over ice. askronnacoffee.com
Now wait a minute. Ronna's recording issues aside, the show must go on, and have we got a show for you this week or have we got a show for you this week? We couldn't be happier to welcome our dear, dear friend (and original troublemaker, excuse me) Sona Movsesian! You know Sona as the personal assistant of another dear friend of The Carriage House, Conan O'Brien. Sona is co-host of the wildly successful podcast CONAN O'BRIEN NEEDS A FRIEND, and, as of TODAY, pardon me, a celebrated author! Her new book, THE WORLD'S WORST ASSISTANT, is out now and we couldn't recommend it more. Go read it! Sona joins us to help give advice on dealing with (possibly) cheap friends, looking for a partner interested in creating a blended family, and surviving a mother-in-law who refuses to wash her hands after being in the restroom. This is an episode for the ages! July's cocktail for the AR Social Club is going to be such a delight we really can't wait to share it with you. And we've got something equally fabulous planned for August. If you want to join in on the fun, make sure you visit arsocialclub.com and subscribe before August 1st to be invited to August's Kiki! And if you're not a drinker, we've still got the most delicious coffee you'll ever taste, pardon me, with Ask Ronna Coffee. An iced Carriage House Blend or Shades of Vanilla is the perfect summer treat. askronnacoffee.com
Good day, dear Carriage House Members! We're here enjoying some delicious Ask Ronna Coffee and giving you a little ASMR with some Queen's Jubilee cookies (Ronna is a royalist, after all), but who are we kidding? We have GOT to get to today's guest. It's none other than our dear friend Carl Clemons-Hopkins! You know them from one of our favorite shows, HACKS, and they're fresh off their Off-Broadway show LESSONS IN SURVIVAL: 1971 at the Vineyard Theatre. Carl joins us to give advice on feeling left behind when friends are coupled up, dealing with a child who might be a budding sociopath, and living with a spouse who doesn't want to share any part of life outside of the house. There's a LOT to cover, and June, or, in this case, July, is truly bustin' out all over! July's AR Social Club boxes are being packed as we speak, and it's going to be another spectacular month. Are you missing out? Come join us for August! Just subscribe before August 1st at arsocialclub.com Of course, our gorgeously bottled Negronna is still available for anyone looking for our killer take on a negroni. Get it at negronna.com And, as if you needed reminding, our Ask Ronna Coffee on ice is a summer treat to savor, pardon me. askronnacoffee.com
Now wait a minute. Not even (Bryan)'s crawdaddy attitude can put a damper on this week's episode, excuse me. We have a genuine superstar in The Carriage House. Joining us this week is none other than actor, director, and co-host of THE TALK on CBS Jerry O'Connell! Jerry, coming at us from the front seat of his '81 Corvette, pardon me, helps us give advice on a sticky step-family situation and a newly widowed mother who's struggling with getting back into the dating pool. With a guest like this, you'll definitely want to wade in these waters! July's AR Social Club is closed! Members will be receiving their boxes and Kiki invitations later this month, but we've also got something very special planned for August's Club. Be sure to visit arsocialclub.com and subscribe before August 1st to be a part of it all!
Now wait a minute. The show hasn't even started yet and Ronna's already had it with (Bryan) thanks to the crate of diabetic chocolate bars he brought her back from Peru. Luckily we have a delightful guest to help ease us out of this unpleasantness. Joining us in The Carriage House is writer, newlywed, and co-host of the podcast HOMOPHILIA Matt McConkey! Matt is here to help us give advice on dealing with flaky friends, discovering a spouse's suspicious text messages, and moving into a new building and finding a big surprise next door. June's AR Social Club Kiki was a HUGE success! Thanks to all the members who joined us to learn how to mix a wicked chilcano. Are you sad you missed out? You should be, excuse me. Luckily, there's still time to join the club for July! Be sure to visit arsocialclub.com and subscribe BEFORE JULY 1 in order to get an invitation for the social event of the summer.
Now wait a minute. Our CHIPs over on Patreon already knew this was happening, but Ronna's lifting the information embargo now and letting the cat out of the bag. While (Bryan) was on vacation, our dear friend Naomi Ekperigin not only guest hosted over on Patreon, but she also recorded a Free Feed with Ronna, and we're THRILLED to share it with you this week! As we've mentioned, be sure to watch Naomi's appearance on David Letterman's Netflix show THAT'S MY TIME. Two comedy greats in one place! Naomi joins Ronna to give advice on a spouse who doesn't want to be a game buddy, a friendship conflict caused by a fiance and his bunny, and some student loan drama putting a strain on a close relationship. Our first AR Social Club Kiki is THIS FRIDAY at 7pm ET / 4pm PT. It's going to be absolutely spectacular. Believe us when we say you'll regret missing this if you're not a Social Club member. But don't worry...you can always join us for July's Kiki! Be sure to subscribe to the AR Social Club before July 1st to guarantee your spot! arsocialclub.com Summer's almost here!

Now wait a minute. This is a HUGE get. How do we keep topping ourselves week after week with these guests? We'll never know, but, once again, you're in for a treat, pardon me. This week we're joined in The Carriage House by none other than Jesse Tyler Ferguson! Of course you know him from MODERN FAMILY, but not only does he have the cutest podcast in the world, GAY PRIDE & PREJUDICE, he's also a TONY Award winning actor as of two days ago, excuse me, for his role in TAKE ME OUT! From accepting a TONY at Radio City to chatting with us in The Carriage House in less than 48 hours. We can't believe it!

Now wait a minute. Of course you know our guests in The Carriage House are the cream of the crop, but our guest this week might be in the midst of having his best week ever, pardon me. We're so excited to welcome none other than actor, writer, and activist Ryan O'Connell! You know Ryan from his delightful Emmy-nominated Netflix show SPECIAL, but he's got TWO new projects coming out this week, excuse me. His new book, JUST BY LOOKING AT HIM is being released TODAY, and his new TV series, a reboot of QUEER AS FOLK, premieres June 9th on Peacock.

Just visit arsocialclub.com (or, yes, arsocial.club works too) and subscribe before July 1st for entry.
Yes, Ronna's a classic...but don't say it to her face (it sounds a little too close to "sage," pardon me). You know what else is classic? These cliffhangers! It's time for another installment of Classic Cliffhangers! For this volume we're using the heading MYOB: Mind Your Own Beeswax. These are letters from people who, rightfully or not, couldn't leave well enough alone. We've got Grimelda the upstairs neighbor, a gay / straight friendship and a perturbed girlfriend, an accidental (and troubling) YouTube post, and our very first Carriage House Dateline mystery. Tomorrow at 11:59pm PT is the deadline to join the AR Social Club for the month of June! Get those subscriptions in so you can take part in June's Monthly Kiki.
Wait a minute. Is it really him? It is! He's back! After his fabulous trip to England and Scotland, (Bryan) is back for a Carriage House Catch-up for the ages. And when we say "catch-up," we mean it, excuse me. We get so excited to chat that we literally set off the fire alarm. Then it's on to giving advice on a husband's dental issue, a deteriorating relationship with a roommate, a flatulence problem, and, on a more serious note, dealing with a personal loss. The AR Social Club sign-ups are in full swing! Join what's sure to be the most exclusive club around this summer with gorgeous cocktails and virtual tastings with Ronna (& Bryan) in attendance. Visit arsocialclub.com OR arsocial.club ...they both work!
Now wait a minute. (Bryan) is still galavanting abroad in gorgeous England and Scotland, but have we got a special guest for you this week or what! Joining us in The Carriage House is none other than Nahant, Massachusetts' favorite son Jason Mantzoukas! You know him from literally a million things on TV and in the world of podcasts (HOW DID THIS GET MADE? is a pure delight, excuse me). Jason joins Ronna to give advice on a very unexpected development in a familial relationship, an upstairs neighbor from Hell, and dealing with working with your ex. And if you love Jason as much as we do, join us on Patreon on Friday where he'll pull a double-double and act as special guest host once again! patreon.com/askronna It's finally here! Welcome to refinement. Welcome to luxury. Welcome to the AR Social Club. This is your opportunity to receive expertly curated cocktails every month and spend some quality time with Ronna, Bryan, and other Social Club Glitterati. Visit arsocial.club for details.
(Bryan) is off on his wanderlust walkabout, which means Ronna is in need of a guest host this week. And who better to join her than the man behind one of her favorite Insta accounts, actor and comedian John Milhiser! You know John from his work with UCB, College Humor, and SNL along with shows like DRAMA CLUB and FOURSOME. And you should do yourselves a favor and follow his IG account today. John joins Ronna to give advice on setting friendship boundaries, dealing with your boyfriend's family, and what to do when a roommate's significant other insists on bringing his dirty dishes to wash in YOUR kitchen sink. It's enough to make you furious fast!
You'll have to forgive (Bryan) for being a bit out of sorts this week. He chipped his tooth eating lobster salad that was way too creamy, and, to top it all off, he thinks his dentist is much more chic than he is. But, as Ronna insists, the show must go on, and have we got a show for you this week, excuse me. Joining us in The Carriage House is none other than our dear, dear friend Mary Holland! You know Mary from literally every show on television, pardon me, but she's got a new Netflix movie coming out on May 13 called SENIOR YEAR with Rebel Wilson which we can't wait to see! Mary helps give advice on dealing with an out of control friend of a friend, adding some luxury to a new apartment that had a recent bedbug infestation (yikes!), and uninviting people to a wedding.
Now wait a minute. Any time we have authors in The Carriage House they become INSTANT best-sellers, and we're sure this week will be no different. We are so fortunate to welcome writer, actor, comedian, and our dear, dear friend Jessi Klein! Jessi is having one of the best weeks of her life, pardon me. Not only does she premiere her new show I LOVE THAT FOR YOU this Friday on Showtime, but her new book I'LL SHOW MYSELF OUT comes out TODAY! What an incredible week! Jessi joins us in The Carriage House to give advice on refusing a widower's unwanted advances, dealing with a friendship on the ropes, and what to do when a hot, hot man has some funky B.O. We end it with what is perhaps the BEST cliffhanger we've ever received. If it's not enough to make you join us on Patreon, we don't know what to tell you.
Now wait a minute. We always joke about how close we are to becoming a legitimate show, but we're long past that. It's already happened, excuse me...especially when we land guests like this. Joining us in The Carriage House this week is our DEAR friend (and Ask Ronna superfan, pardon me) Richard Lawson! Richard is the chief critic for VANITY FAIR (maybe you've heard of it?) and his podcasts LITTLE GOLD MEN and STILL WATCHING are available wherever you get your podcasts. Superfan Richard joins us for some Gilded Age talk and then helps us give advice on a pair of vacation dramas (one with family, one with friends) as well as giving some ideas for groomsmen activities at a wedding.
