Alison Rosen, Former OC Weekling, Boasts 1 Million Downloads of Her Newish Podcast Show
A day before her birthday, the writer-broadcaster-Adam Carolla newsgirl, can boast that there have been 1 million downloads of her Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend podcast, which only launched on Feb. 13.
Her newscast, with the Cronkitesque "Zip it, cunt" tagline, have always been one of the best parts of The Adam Carolla Show, which has been recognized as one of the country's, nay, universe's top downloaded podcasts.

Hitting the 1 million download mark so soon into the show is boast-worthy, but just imagine the pressures of typing a million "Happy Birthdays" to her new BFFs on Facebook or pretending each new haircut makes the BFF's face look thinner.
"Having a million BFFs is difficult at first," Rosen concedes, "but then they start taking care of each other, like dogs."
Funny story, when I went to grab the iTunes link, my eyes deceived me into thinking her most recent guest was Jim Varney, which would have been quite a booking feat considering the "Hey, Vern"/Ernest Goes to ... guy is quite dead. Turns out it's comedian Janet Varney.
