Podcast Picks: Just Between Us
Hosted by: Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn // Forever Dog
There's something magical about how well Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn work together. For years, they've been a comedy team, and in April 2014, they debuted their YouTube channel, called Just Between Us. Over the years, their regular talk show has amassed more than 680,000 subscribers and over 150 million views. In March of 2019, they started the podcast version of Just Between Us. Raskin and Dunn are best friends and have amazing chemistry in any medium. Their personalities have a perfect interplay together, with Raskin generally being the voice of reason and Dunn being the more impetuous host. They're both extremely honest and caring, above all else. In the podcast, they examine relationships, mental health, sexuality, and what it means to process all the crazy things that life throws at you, all while being consistently hilarious and sensitive at the same time. They're generally joined by guests, most often authors – check out episodes with Janet Hardy, Ellen Forny, or You're Wrong About's Sarah Marshall as a good place to start. The shows flow with regular segments, like "International Questions," "Would You Stay With This Cheater?," and "Is This Person an Alien or Just Rude?" If you listen for a moment and Raskin and Dunn happen to be your thing, you'll become a lifelong convert, ready to laugh at life and maybe even understand it a little bit better than you did before.
