Dr. Drew is opening another episode with Brad Williams filling in for Adam, They’re joking about the overwhelming positivity for Brad filling in for Adam, and Brad is getting it low.
Drew is doing a no choice to get it on and says Adam will be back next week, Brad is thanking fans for telling him to take Adam’s place, and Drew and Gary are praising his willingness to fit them into his busy schedule.
Brad is now giving an example of filling in for Ralph Garman on Kevin and Bean, Drew is citing Loveline and how it effects his schedule.
Gary and Chris are telling Drew about Bard showing up at Irvine and getting booked on the show last minute, he’s now sharing some advice from an improv teacher.
The teacher told him that “nobody cares about you” and Drew is bringing up how his generation that never even considered having to come to that thought, they knew it.
Drew is now quoting Bob Forrest describing the entitlement of this generation, entitled to everything and interested in nothing.
Brad is now summing up the Patent Troll case and what a scam it seems to be, Drew is now saying that’s the pervasive attitude of society where people plot to steal form rich people and justify it by telling themselves they must have cheated to earn it.
Brad is now sharing an anecdote of someone asking him for rent money and the assumption that his money is theirs.
Drew is plugging his upcoming show with Dennis Prager and getting the guys to help him come up with the name of the venue.
Brad is sharing Dennis Prager’s “you’re not bored, you’re boring” line of advice, Drew is too busy getting to the plug to bring up addiction and its role in boredom.
Drew says it’s a chance to hear him wax poetic on topics he never gets to, philosophical stuff.
Brad is now mocking Adam and joking about him being receptive, he’s got some kind words in the buildup before the sting, Drew is giving his take on what gets boring I person vs. on a podcast.
Drew spilled his coffee, Gary replaced it and cleaned it up, Brad is sharing how he was told “it’s impossible to talk” on the show before he guested, he says it tested him as a comic.
Drew is now getting to his dynamic with Adam, he’s citing how Adam will witch gears on him and hang him out to dry.
1st Letter Teresa, she’s listening to the podcast I host and inspired, Classic Loveline on Podcastone and she’s noticing the different tone between Adam and Drew in 1996.
She wants to know if Drew genuinely disliked Adam.
She says “old couple” instead of odd couple or Chris messed it up, I’m gonna blame her mostly due to the wording of her question being possibly anti-Adam.
Drew is explaining how he had to prepare for Adam on Loveline, he assumed he was “dangerous” like former co-hosts and he would have to reel him in more and that Adam got less extreme.
No, Adam got less eager to entertain within his 1st year, he stopped dancing for the man, once everyone was clear whose face and mouth was the cash register.
Drew took almost 3 years to get less strict on Adam, less likely to yell or tell him to move on when he was working on a bit or a riff, it’s a slow progression but even by 1997 Drew is already joking around with his own drops that he threatened to walk off the show in response to in 1996.
Keep listening Teresa!
Drew is further citing Adam’s riffs and now Brad is calling out Adam for repetition and Drew is stepping up to tell him that Adam doesn’t care for that, it’s not accurate.
Adam has more hours logged on air and less repetition than any other radio or podcast host, I’ve actually crunched the numbers, its staggering, Adam operates at over 90% fresh material at almost all times on the podcast.
