Dana Gould


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

Dana Gould joins Adam and the gang right from the top of the show. The guys talk about the glory of Van Halen, and also point out things about one sex that the opposite sex does not care about. Dana also talks about his new show with Dave Grohl, and Adam rants about the new Tyler Perry film. Later, the guys take a call from the guitarist on the Taboo 2 theme song.

The top news story is about Donald Trump’s support of Mitt Romney. Adam points out that Trump’s hair is part of his identity, and the guys discuss stars that purposefully disguise themselves as opposed to going out as they’re normally portrayed. The group also talks about Bloomberg’s donation to Planned Parenthood, and Adam breaks down the nation’s mixed message about gambling.

Also in the news, Adam Sandler is going to be writing a new film based on the board game Candyland. Alison also mentions some exciting news about friends of the show Patton Oswalt, and Bryan Cranston, both of whom have exciting new TV opportunities. After other stories about Jay Leno and Christina Aguilera, the show wraps up with a hilarious round of This Week in Rage.

    God, I hope they get into some Planet of the Apes talk. “…and then there was our most precious cargo: Steward. She was to be our new Eve…”

  2. Badger

    Just starting now. Dana always brings it. Looking forward to a good show.

    I better hear some goddamn Huell this time! I’m still pissed about last time.

  4. Maccaguy

    Given the upcoming “Battleship” film, I was joking with my wife last week about a Candy Land movie. With Sandler’s involvement, we can only hope it holds it’s own against his other cinematic classics such as Bucky Larson, Jack and Jill, or Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.

  5. Trevor

    I don’t think Adam has changed his shirt all week.

    • Poochie's Uncle

      Dana has the same outfit he had on last time too. Weird.

        Funny pooch 🙂 Trevor, I’m pretty sure it’s an old photo, with that being said, Trevor, It’s Radio!
        Listening to Deep Tracks today heard some old Lou Reed and Elvis Costello, pretty pretty pretty good…

    • Nick

      That’s hilarious! Adam always gets so much crap for wearing sweats and looking sloppy he must just keep a button-up on hand now haha

  6. Cyrus

    when you’re 84 years old the least of your worries is some tattoo you got in your twenties…i imagine you’re more concerned about keeping the shit out of your underwear and making it to the bathroom!

  8. Boomer

    And the shirt day count rolls to 4…..

  9. Cyrus

    Best show in a while. Def made up for the Kevin Smith debacle.

  10. Halo909

    Adam you should ask the taboo musician to do a song for you.

  11. Moe

    Love it when Carolla busts out his fat black chick voice…

  12. Chad

    Dana Gould is probably the best recurring guest on this show. I love it when he’s on. Yes, I’d blow him.

    • Job

      gorrgghhrrggghh…I couldn’t agree more…guurrrgghhhgllhghhh

    • Riggz

      YES! Dana Gould is hilarious! He actually makes those boring news segments fun to listen to.

  13. MoneyLendingArab


  14. Bretton

    How many of these were done in the same day? When are guests going to start taking the pic with Ace and holding their nose? Or am I missing a joke about him wearing the same shirt for every photo.

    • Jonesin44

      You’re not missing the joke, you’re just a moron. He’s wearing a different undershirt everyday.

    I saw the unedited pics of Miley and the penis cake and had them stowed away in a warm cozy area of my spank back catalog. Then I saw pic 15 of 15 today and all I can say is thank you ABN! I’m scarred for life now!

      I wish I could un-see that pic. Barf.

  18. Sarah

    Alison– its sad that the gentlemen know whats going on with Xtina’s crotch and her sweat than a chick.

    Sometimes, you are one of the most unrelatable chicks I’ve ever heard.

    Yes, it IS self-tanner on her legs and when her now-husky thighs rub together, friction creates heat. She also has a donkey booty- thus, her volumptious skin rubs, then sweats.

    Get more relatable Alison. As a lady and a huge ACP fan, make me proud. Get it back on girl!!!!

    • Michael Pemulis

      Fewer exclamation points!!!!!! As in none. Also, learn to create coherent sentences.

    • May Kadoodee
      May Kadoodee02-03-2012

      Oh my god that was funny Sarah, you’re not that Sarah are you? The one that Brian and you tried and later regreted getting me voted into office? Huh!

      • May Kadoodee
        May Kadoodee02-03-2012

        Deja Vu, I’m getting old, I think I asked Sarah this question before????????

    • Logic.

      Ok, fatty, we get it. Your shit leaks. Don’t take it out on Alison. She is gold.

    • Cyrus

      “Get more relatable”?

      That’s rational.

    Adam’s wearing a shirt today 🙂

  21. Flatulator

    I love how Adam is more interested in the Taboo 2 guitarist than he is in 97% of the guests booked on the show.

    • big jim
      big jim02-03-2012

      You could actually hear the joy in his voice when he learned the guitarist’s own mom sang backup on “Gotta Get It On”.
      Have to admit, it made my day, too.

  22. Hot Nikks

    What’s wrong with the Caesar?

  23. Jim

    Dude I love the podcasts, but it’s getting to a point where it’s almost painful to listen to. For the love of god please tell Bryan to cut out the “WHO!?!?” drops any time you mention ANY name. On second though, just take the drops out completely. I would pay for the podcast daily if you could cut out his stupid annoying bullshit.

    Keep up the good work Ace Man

    • Poochie's Uncle

      I love that drop.

      “I should fire you and burn down your house”

    • a

      fuck you dude. The dr bruce”uuuugh resveratrol?” drop is hysterical, and tumor sulcus bryan jumped on it and played it to a satisfying degree. Also the daily end of show drops are always funny.

    • Badger

      The good news is — your fired.

    • rik

      Everyday I consider abandoning the podcast because of Bryan’s torturous drops.

    • marco

      Dude, are you gay?

  24. Alex

    “Gayer than cum on a mustache”- Chris Hardwick

    • Tracy

      Or you could just say, gayer than Chris Hardwick.

      • Dave

        Who is straight and has thousands of adoring nerd-girl fans?

  25. Lindsay

    If you watch the video of Christina Aguilera, she enters the stage feeling uncomfortable in the first place, visibly wiping her legs both against one another and with her hands. This behavior reminds me of a time when I was about 4 or 5 years old, hiking a trail through the woods with my dad, and having to pee worse than I’ve ever had to in my entire life. No bathrooms for half a mile, and with a man who never makes bathroom stops, even on five hour drives. I remember that day making the same embarrassed motions as Christina is here.

    My conclusion is this: She was on stage next, had to go really bad, and her ol’ pee dam lost a few bricks during childbirth. That, paired with the fact that she probably did in fact use a thick, most likely metallic bronzing cream that day, resulted in the unfortunate situation.

    I suspect, had Christina been hiking in the woods at that moment rather than singing at Etta James’ funeral, she would have found a nice, private Laurel shrub and relieved herself, and then wiped the evidence away with some very absorbent moss.

  26. gulliver

    YES! Finally, Adam brings This Week in Rage to the show.

  27. carlosvega

    seriously… 4 days with the same shirt? lol… you’re literally a millionaire. c’mon… C’MON!!!

    Urine and menstrual blood lead in the “Death Row Madam” book. Nice review by Porcelain.

  31. Tread

    No mention or discussion of Kool and the Gang opening for Van Halen? Fail…

  32. JessMan

    dynamite taboo 2 discussion! i’ve got to see this movie…

  33. Jeff

    This is one of the funniest shows I have heard in a long time. Dana Gould is always great and this one is hilarious from start to finish. Especially when they talked to the musician from the Taboo 2 soundtrack, some great jokes from Adam and Dana. I was in tears. Please make Dana Gould a weekly guest.

  34. stuart

    I MISS HULE’s JEWELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dana is the man! I can’t wait to hear his podcast.

  36. B-Real

    Gould is always gold. Great episode.

  37. Johnny

    Does anybody know what the background music in This Week in Rage is?

    • Cyrus


  38. Terri

    I love Adam and am a loyal fan but damn I wish he would start letting his guests get a word in. Sometimes he does but lately not so much. Not a fan of the news.

  39. Murphy


    I just read a Bill Simmon’s article that says you picked the Pats. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Don’t do this. Please, PLEASE change your pick before it’s too late.

    I beg, ney, I implore you to do this.

    “Oh great” (Jim Carolla)

  40. GargantuJuan

    This was the best show in months. The Taboo 2 discussion with the guitar player was SOLID GOLD!

  41. Randall

    Dana Gould is a good pallet clenser for a rough week.

  42. Jessiey

    Nothing against the Pink Floyd guy but today’s ep was the best Behind the Music I’ve heard since Rivid appeared on the Big Three podcast.

    • Jessiey

      Rivet that is, slight difference. You may know them as Retribution.


    Same shirt theory:

    Adam comes into the studio early every day to help with the renovation. The t-shirt he wears while working inevitably gets a bit sweaty and dusty. The long sleeve plaid shirt you see him wearing is a shirt he keeps at the studio.

    He has this plaid shirt there to throw on over top the t-shirt he was working in. He wears this during the podcast to hide the pit stains and dust particles that he may have gotten from his participation in the renovation.

    Mystery solved. Your welcome.

    • Sig

      They shoot a couple of these shows a day.

      “Allllll damn night!”

      • Marko

        No, (except on rare occasions) they shoot one show a day, 5 days a week. You can clearly see that Adam is wearing a different t-shirt underneath the plaid in all the photos.

        • marco

          That makes sense, otherwise the news would get stale.

  44. Maui

    Nothing comes close to Dana Gould as a guest…maybe Patton Oswalt…but Dana is the best….

  45. eric-the-ded


    That is all.

  46. Joe

    “It’s like Make-a-Wish Foundation for guys who beat off into hampers.”


  47. Ivan

    Eric Stromer was an awesome guest on the radio show. Why isn’t he on the podcast???

  48. medicinedog


  49. Shew

    I, too would pay for the podcast if Bryan were eliminated. Enough.

  50. Chester

    The “This Week in Rage” segment is always an unmitigated disaster. I really wish that Adam would realize that being angry and being funny are not always the same thing. His “rant guy” persona got old a long, long time ago.

    • Cyrus

      And folks like you should realize that the show isn’t 100% comedy. FFS. Get over yourself.

    • Me

      why do you think this guy has endured for about 20 years now, and has the biggest podcast in the world? Maybe it’s because what he does WORKS you idiot. If you hate him so much WTF are you listening?

  51. José

    fucking paisano wop……..

    Dana by far the BEST guest ever! Love it!!

  54. GinaG

    Lately there seems to be a lot of guys on here becoming obsessed with Ace’s clothing. Why is he wearing the same shirt? Who the fuck cares?!

    “Dude, are you gay?”

  55. leadoff

    I think Dana is awesome but being someone who is Pro Choice I cant stand it when some says those who arent “Hate Women”…. Its like saying I know you are but what am I?… Common Dana you are smarter than that… We dont hate babies just because we feel women have the right to chose. Comments like that do us all a great disservice.

  56. Craig in Seattle

    Ace- How would you feel about Sonny taking a strong liking to the Taboo theme song? So soothing and melodic… Sleep well thinking about that!

    Dana is funny but you can see the very tip of a giant blowharf liberal ahole iceberg just wanted to suface.

  58. JJ

    This was a great show. Listened 3 times. Hilarious.

  59. Mart

    The first 15 minutes of this show was better than the entire hour and a half of the Kevin Smith one. Funny and smart.

  60. donewithidiots

    Good pod. Good chemistry. Platinum asshole. Adam ranting and forgetting what his original point was was almost as funny.lol

  61. John in PDX
    John in PDX02-06-2012

    1:10 am Monday morning and no new podcast… I miss Donny.

  62. Mike

    Get that guitarist on the show. He’s a riot. Have him create a couple of songs for the podcast.

  63. Tom

    anywhere to find the midi version of the “Taboo 2” theme song??

  64. Susie-Q

    Would love to see Dana Gould do more Huell Howser again, the 2009 radio recording of Dana Gould and the colossal colon with Teresa Strasser is comedy gold!!!!

  65. L'huomo d'Ace
