Commander Kirk Lippold
At the top of the show, the guys discuss the unfortunate incident of Larry Miller’s head injury after leaving last night’s podcast. Adam also responds to a fan letter about parenting in the black community, and polls the entire staff for their age and number of children. Alison then jumps into the news with stories about baseball stadiums offering peanut-free seating, and a pepper-spray incident at Santa Monica City College.
Commaner Kirk Lippold, ex-commander of the USS Cole, comes in studio next and talks about Al Qaeda’s attack on his ship. He describes the hole in the side of the boat, and the moments that followed as the sailors recovered and sailed out with their heads held high.
Alison then returns to the news and talks about an airport security officer being arrested after dumping coffee on a pilot. The guys also talk about a potential Naugles comeback, weird t-shirt designs from the 70s, and the discontinuation of Canadian pennies. Later, the guys talk about how parking meters mess with our citizens. As the show wraps up, Adam talks about his friend who beat a superior officer with a shoe, and Commander Lippold discusses his rise through the naval academy.
