Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Katherine Ryan
At the top of the show, Adam recalls one of the worst weeks of his life, which involved guest starring on ‘Dawson’s Creek’ while juggling ‘Loveline’. Adam then takes a call from ‘Billions’ producers Brian Koppelman and David Levien. The guys chat about how great TV is these days, and the difficulty of getting good content on the air. Later they discuss Piers Morgan, adults using Facebook, and listening to cool TV theme songs. Bryan then reveals a repressed memory about getting rejected, and Adam takes phone calls about the accuracy of celebrity net worths, genders for robots, and how to apply for jobs you don’t want.
Comedian Katherine Ryan is in studio next, and the guys talk about enjoying Mangria. Adam asks her about her international background, and the group chats about owning rabbits, dogs with human names, and how the comedy scene differs from the UK to the US. Gina then begins the news talking about Playboy returning to nude pictures, and the impact of tears on arousal levels. They also discuss a guy suing Uber because of a glitch that alerted his wife to his cheating, and a pilot replaced after going on a bizarre political rant over the intercom. Along the way, the guys talk about the political atmosphere all over the world. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about porn traffic on Valentine’s Day, and a man who foiled his own murder-for-hire plot.
