Jakob Dylan and David Wild


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

The show opens up with the gang discussing the pros and cons of leftovers. Adam also tells more stories from the road, and tries to figure out if he was being a dick for correcting the people he was talking to. Later he rants about the new wave radio station and terrible cab conditions, and the guys listen to a sample of the new Showgirls commentary Adam taped with Dana Gould’s Huell Howser.

Adam welcomes Jakob Dylan and David Wild to the studio next, and the guys talk about the history of The Wallflowers. Adam also asks Jakob about the experience of being raised by his dad Bob, and Jakob talks about raising his own four sons. After choosing the songs of the week, Alison rolls through news stories about James Holmes, Jonah Lehrer, and the craziness surrounding Chick-Fil-A. As the show wraps up, the guys discuss the latest Westboro protest, reality TV shows, and an upcoming Pixar sequel.

    VIVA LA RAZA07-30-2012

    So how many podcats now is this been with only white guests? 100?

    Why wont Adam have on any latinos, blacks, asens? Oh thats right he is a RACEST. This is why I listen to SModcast cuz it is more funny and not racest like the Adam Corolla racesm hour.

    • Brad

      I totally agree VIVA LA RAZA, he needs white people all the time. I bet most of the “asens” are working on his computers and we don’t want to hear from them. Just interesting people and less Hispanics are what we want.

    • Paul

      Dameshek, is that you?

      David Allen Grier, Alonzo Bodden and Mike Tyson have been on the podcast. Adam would have DAG on often if he were available. What about Ozzy? He’s one of Adam’s closest friends. Adam even gave him a leading role in his movie! What racist does that?

    • Boone

      Alonzo Bodden, DAG, LeVar Burton, Ice-T……Looks like somebody doesn’t really listen, hasn’t done the research or maybe they’re the RAC”I”ST. SModcast blows! GET IT ON!

      This show is not racest! I would never listen faithfully to a racest show. It is, however, very racist.

    • david

      In recent memory, David Allen Grier, Alonzo Bodin, Arsenio Hall. Now go troll somewhere else.

    • Steph

      I shouldn’t reply to your pathetic attempt to call out “racism” but I couldn’t help myself. Look at the past guests, learn how to spell, and get a life. Now, I’m going to listen to the PODCAT while eating some ASEN food, yum!

    • hash

      Yet, you leave a comment on the “adamcarolla” website? I like to think he’s an equal opportunity racist though. Good Stuff..

    • c

      because alonzo bowden, levar burton, DAG, wyatt cenac, ice-t, steve byrne, and nahnatchka khan aren’t minorities? and if you’re going to call someone a ‘racist’, at least spell it correctly.

    • Benjo

      12 podcasts ago he had Steve Byrne (asian). 18 ago was Alonzo Bodden (black). 21 ago Levar Burton (black). Shortly before that he had Wyatt Cenac and Ice-T (though not at once).

      He might still be racist but I don’t think you can say it’s because he has only white guests.

      Also, spelling is a thing.

      • Robert

        Now that you mention it, has anyone ever seen Wyatt Cenac and Ice-T in the same room? Say, you don’t think?…..nahhhh

    • PR

      you gonna post the same comment every day Mayor Vilar? Don’t you have a city to mismanage?

    • whitey

      Dude, before you submit a comment, especially a stupid one, you should really try spell-checking what you wrote.

    • Dustin

      Why are you on this message board? If you dont like the show, please stop listening. The word is spelled racist, not racest. Idiot.

    • Rrrrr

      Why don’t you go listen to a latino podcast. then you would be happy.

    • Scott

      Racist, you fucking idiot. If I was retarded and didn’t know how to spell I would google the word “racist” before I wrote it on a message board…..but then you wouldn’t be a retard.

    • GOD

      No ASENS!!!! Now that IS racist…. err RACEST!

      Someone didn’t take advantage of affirmative action when they were in “skool”.

        Funny sh!t God.

    • donny obvious
      donny obvious07-31-2012

      You misspelled racist. Isn’t it kind of racist to have to try and make sure that there is an even amount of each race on a show? That means you are picking people because of their race. Smodcast doesn’t really have guests on it so that is a poor choice for comparison, and furthermore, Smodcast has never had any black guests on, so why are you not calling Kevin Smith “racest”? Oh, you also misspelled Asians.

    • Bitter_One

      Really? Wasn’t DAG on while they were in New York? Lavar Burton isn’t black enough?

    • Hugh G Rection
      Hugh G Rection07-31-2012

      I do have to admit that Adam has NEVER had a single Asen to the show. So he is actually anti-asen…

    • Evildead

      he does, david allen grier and levar burton were on a while ago

        “liberalsRstupid”, you really need to stop saying that. Myself and at least one other person just called you a Dumb Englishman only 5 days ago.

        One more time…YOU ARE A DUMB ENGLISHMAN!!!!!!!

        Now STOP saying no one has ever called you that. They have, multiple times.

      there’s always DAG… Adam’s token black friend

    • Dave

      He’s right. Adam is much faster than the dudes on SModcast.

    • what?!

      First, I suggest if you want to be taken seriously on a comment board, learn to spell, i.e. racist*…Asians*…racism*

      Second, isn’t actually more racist that you notice that kind of crap? Why don’t you grow up and move on?

    • Tony

      @VIVA LA RAZA Alonzo and DAG not too long ago. Also to notice that he has had mainly white people is racist within itself, I have never noticed what ethnicity the majority of guests are because I don’t look at the world that way.

    • Jesusgarza31

      I’m a Mexican American and I don’t consider Adam a racist! He is a comedian genius that has great points on life.

      You’re the racist Sir your part of a group that excludes other individuals that aren’t your race. I also believe that you’re silly to try to promote your lame podcast on Adams Website.

      Good Day Sir!!

      Good Day!

    • John

      Steve Byrne is Asian. He was on a week or two ago. Alonzo Bodden and LeVar Burton were also on at the beginning of the month. I’m pretty sure they are black. I’m not sure if you are a troll or an idiot…regardless, please learn how to spell.

    • ButSeriously

      * Racist *Asians *Racism *Carolla.
      If you actually listened to the podcast, you would know Dom Irrera, Wyatt Cenac, Lavar Burton, Ice-T and Steve Bryne have been on in just the last month. On top of the fact that David Allen Grier is a podcast regular….not that any of this means anything to you because you can’t fight stupid.

      • DonnySac

        Dom Irrera isn’t asian – he only looks asian.

    • ramon

      amigo, you’re embarrassing me. You’re the racist for looking at peoples race as a qualifier for them being an interesting guest rather than their own merrits. That alone makes you more racist than the ace man. Also please, as a 1st generation mexican american, stop pushing forward a latino agenda, there’s bigger problems facing the community.

    • Graham Wellington
      Graham Wellington07-31-2012

      I agree. This show continues to be racest until it has someone like Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards or Elliot Sadler on. Until then, racest show on the planet

    • Ryan

      Cleary this ‘Viva La Raza’ guy is a spoof of some kind. Pay his comments no mind….

    • Yak

      How did you figure out how to turn on your computer, you ignorant troll? I’m speechless, (which is why I had to type this).

    • Racest Asen
      Racest Asen07-31-2012

      This guy liked Cop Out and Jersey Girl I’m sure. The only show on Smodcast that’s entertaining is HBO and that’s because Ralph Garmin (Adam’s former roommate and still his friend) is funny. Too bad his humor never rubbed off on Kevin Smith…

      • Lauren

        Clerks was good and I saw another movie by that dude, but I don’t recall seeing any minorities in leads in any of those flicks…

        I don’t think it’s racist to believe that people should be encouraged to integrate and better themselves. In the US, no one is prevented from getting off their butts and working to make a good life for themselves.

        The anger comes from the shame of someone who realizes that they are the only ones that are holding themselves back.

        LA RAZA is an offensive and racist organization.

      This MUST be Kev Smith…

      • Robert

        I’m fairly certain it’s Jakob Dylan. He was trying to hijack the discussion so everyone would forget what a turd he was on the show.

    • Kelsey

      Learn to spell “racist,” and we might take your complaints more seriously.

    • mushroom-destroyer

      he has had black asian and latino guests, you are a idiot

      You have no idea what the fuck you are talking about. Alonzo Bodden and DAG are practically regulars on this program. Not to mention that some of the past guests include Ice T,, Carlos Mencia, Natasha Leggerio, Gabriel Iglesias, John Leguizamo and Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele ..just to name a few. What you closed minded fools don’t understand is that Adam is so un-racist and un-biased that he doesn’t even consider factoring in booking his guests based on race. Only talent and RESPECT for them as an artist. Something neither of you gentlemen have ..nor I have for you. ….and on that note.. I say good day. to you…………………I SAID GOOD DAY!

      • elizabeth

        Thank GOD! Chris Cholak! MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION: WHY……….. do these BOZO’s say crap that is sooo wrong and WHY the FLIP are they here!?? DOUCHES like these are the ONLY THING Adam is Racist against! What dumb fuckers! WIsh Podcast wasn’t r free the we could CUT LOSE the dead weight!

    • Bill

      I believe DAG is black…He takes over the show, you cant get rid of him….

    • weskanaloa

      Worst trolling attempt of the day.

    • Voiceover

      Not even close to true. He has Alonzo Bodden, David Allen Grier, Lavar Burton, Ice T, Arsenio Hall, etc…..al black the last time I checked. There are Latino and Asian guests as well. Yes most of his crowd and material appeals and happens to be more common with whites but that doesn’t mean anything. It certainly doesn’t mean he is racist. In comparison, Chris rock appeals to more black than white, George Lopez appeals to more Latino than black or white. I don’t think there is anything wrong with tailoring your material to the majority of the people that listen to you. You have to find a niche and stick to it to be successful. Adam is among the most genuine and honest people alive and we can all learn from it. Try to take an objective approach. Cheers!

    I can’t keep telling people about this podcast unless you give me a reason too. I love ya, Ace Man, but Sheck and Wild are not what I find interesting …at all…

    Jesus…Jakob got just a tad defensive when Adam asked if his dad was affectionate: “Of course. Why would anyone think otherwise!” And speaking of rotten mouth breath: Bob Dylan! When a joke was made during the podcast, Jakob’s response: “Hmph.” This guy must be a thrill at parties.

    • MC White
      MC White08-01-2012

      No, I didn’t take it like he got defensive, I took it, like he couldn’t understand why the question would be asked. Maybe he never heard Adam rant about his Dad who is never affectionate, and the main reason why Adam was asking, not because Adam was very interested in Jakob’s father.

    • elizabeth

      ADAM!!!!!!!!!!! Jakob was a podcast GAFF! He is one fucked up b0ring fuck! EGO!! Hello?? I would screen these wanna be’s – before hand. BooHoo He almost Black night when asked about his daddy! What a VAGINA!

  17. sadpodcastlistener

    Slowly falling out of love with Adam. Seriously becoming too right-wing. I find myself having to read the summary prior to decide if I want to listen. More and more I find myself fast-forwarding through his podcast to bypass all of the right-wing nonsense.

    • Chad

      Adam isn’t all right wing–and I get what you mean. But I have to say, if this is where the right wing currently exists as a political party, look forward to the left being in control for a long time.

    • Dustin

      Nobody cares if you don’t like the podcast. What are you people expecting while posting your negative comments? Do you think you are going to listen to every second of every podcast, and agree with Adam on every topic? If so, you are insane. Please go listen to something else or maybe just eat rat poison. Your choice.

      • elizabeth

    Anyone wonder why the only music stars worth caring about appear when being chaperoned by Wild? Whats the deal with that? They’re just hanging out with Wild, but wouldn’t appear themselves?
    I do get the urge not to appear, Adam asks stupid questions for like 5 minutes then hits the freaking news. Really squanders and insults his guests, sometimes they hang out for 2+ hours to get 5 minutes worth of interviewing.
    David Wild looks like a fatter, uglier Parry F Karamello. Long live the Big 3!

        I’ve heard the same thing said about Lady Gaga, i.e. A doesn’t like Gaga, then B tells A that A couldn’t do what Gaga does.

        B is missing the point. What Lady Gaga does is make shitty music. The fact that millions of drones will buy said music doesn’t make it less shitty, regardless of the effort.

        Personally, I don’t think Adam necessarily needs a guest every day. No guest is certainly better than Dameshek.

    I always get a kick out of hearing Adams road stories. Funny stuff. You would think the airline’s rep could provide him with logical (creative) alternatives. Flying to Toronto from Montreal (1 hour) then driving to Buffalo (aprox. 1.5 hours) would have saved Adam & company several hours compared to driving all the way (and it’s all within the eastern time zone). At least present the option. Then again, you’re dealing with an airline that puts white sauce on a chicken parm.

    Still, he is a giant kiss-ass and name dropper.

    You’ve never been to a “Robert Evans”? That place is great! Next time you’re in the midwest (where there is like 1.7M of them) got to get the Biscuits-n-gravy; then wash it down with a loaf of their Banana nut bread (yes, the whole thing), followed by one of their whole delicious pies for desert (a jug of whole milk to accompany is in order, per “Not Taco Bell Material”). Be aware that they do not serve beer (to go with the flapjacks when hungover at 11:00am) – so, you will have to be equipped with pre or post diner brewski.

    While us midwesterners know how to eat to become fat, BobEvans is one of the more clean, respectable diner type joints in the midwest. Founded in Ohio; their tag line used to be “down on the farm….”

    The reason why Cabs are so disgusting isn’t due to a LACK of Govt involvement. Why does the Govt even license Cabs? Thats the real problem. More Govt regulations will just make Cabs more expensive for the USERS. Adam, as always immediately jumps to the conclusion that MORE Govt regulation is always the correct answer. It’s ALWAYS the wrong answer.

    Please Adam pull ur head out of ur butt. I really want to like your show and do at times, but dang, youre really dumb/ignorant about anything outside of your extremely narrow view point. The “because I dont like it sucks” mentality belongs at recess at any 3rd grade class not in adult conversation.

      Yeah!! Pesky government keeping chemicals out of food! And what business do they have locking up murderers!!?!?! Or licensing drivers!?!?! Or keeping out illegal immigrants??!??!?

      “What in God’s holy name are you blathering about?”

    • RoyalDryness

      The idea that more government regulation is always the wrong answer is one of my biggest problems with modern Republican/conservative politics. Black and white thinking is wrong. The world is one big gray area. Despite what you claim to espouse, I’m certain that there are plenty of areas in which you agree that government regulation is a good thing. Like say, food and drug safety. We can argue about the effectiveness of the FDA, what they should or shouldn’t do, but I can’t believe any intelligent person believes that there should be no regulation on the producers of foods and medication. The financial and business sector is one of the place that we need regulation the most. Again, how to go about doing that is a matter of debate, but left completely deregulated business will by their very nature do whatever is necessary to maximize profits. It’s the job of the government to make sure that businesses don’t engage in behavior that is detrimental to society. Will that impede growth to some extent? Probably, but if done correctly and in a balanced way, government can regulate business to protect citizens, and ensure that growth is stable and sustainable. The less regulated the financial sector is the more it becomes a cycle of boom and bust with extreme highs and lows. With proper regulation those wild swings can be minimized which I’m sure you’d agree is a positive for our economy.

      Lastly, (most) conservatives need to abandon their mantra of “smaller” government. They don’t want government have any less power or be less intrusive in the lives of citizens (in fact I’d argue they want a MORE powerful and intrusive government) they just disagree over what issues the government can dictate behavior. The best way to eliminate spending and waste from government is to eliminate redundancy and make power and control more centralized, which would actually shrink government. Ironically though more centralized control goes against conservative thought, making it just one more hypocritical and nonsensical conservative tenet. True liberals aren’t stupid, they recognize the nuance and uncertainty of government and constantly strive to find solutions, and understand the purpose of government is look out for what’s best for the largest possible group of citizens. Unfortunately, many Americans can’t look past platitudes and sound bites to look for real solutions.

      As for your argument that lack of government regulation not being the issue with stinky cabs, it’s a little of both. Cabs are licensed to ensure having a licensed driver and are in good working order and are safe (i.e. have seat belts and other safety features). The government as far as I know says nothing about the “funk” of cabs, so in that way the lack of government regulation in the atmosphere of a cab does contribute to them having an unpleasant atmosphere. However, as unpleasant as body odor and remnants of ethnic foods are, they pose no real risk to passengers so there is an argument that the government shouldn’t be regulating it. But, if they did say randomly check the stench of cabs and fined operators or cab companies you’d probably see them being a lot less funky. Therefore, government regulation and enforcement could change the situation for cab riders. Again, there is definitely an argument that regulation of cab funk is not the job of the government but that doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t make a difference. And if such a program were instituted properly, fines would offset much of the cost.

    Can you give me ANY example of why you say Sarah Palin is “Nuts”? Anything not twisted by the morons you surround yourself with that is. You say the Aurora shooter is nuts, though I firmly disagree with that assessment but at least you can supply an example to back up your statement. With Sarah Palin its crickets on examples based on reality.

    • RoyalDryness

      How about instead of “nuts” we say Sarah Palin is incompetent, lacks an understanding of even basic foreign policy issues and despite her national profile was (and appears still is) woefully ill-informed about the machinations of government.

  54. HotBlackDesoto

    Serious question:

    Is Taco Bell really extremely cheap in California? Adam keeps bringing up 39 cent tacos and here in the midwest they’re like a buck for one measley, nearly meatless taco. The double deckers are $1.49 and I ate four of them Mo-Fos tonight.

    Anyway, am I paying too much???

    • MC White
      MC White08-01-2012

      I already posted on this a while back HotBlackDesoto, Adam is “stuck in the 80’s.” I think he is secretly fascinated with what he has been denied as a kid (job at Taco Bell). Here in California…tacos run about $1.09 each. Burritos, easily $1.49 each and more. Whenever he says $.99 sodas at Marie Calendar, try $2.99 for free refills (not exactly free). He under exagerates prices in cheap restaurants, to make his points, but he’s usually WAY under. I heard him say a load of tacos and burritos for under $20 for his work crew. BULLSHIT!!!! Easily $40 and up for so much food from Taco Bell for his work crew. Trust me..I DID get the job at Taco Bell, when I was his age.

      It may be WAY under Buckhorn Grill, for instance, but Taco Bell adds up, and 20 of shit is still shit!

    • Poochie's Uncle
      Poochie's Uncle08-01-2012

      Adam still lives in 1982.

    • Adam's Hypocrisy
      Adam's Hypocrisy08-01-2012

      No, they are the same price here. I think what has happened with Adam is what happens to many people who become successful or wealthy, and become disassociated from the reality of the average person. This is probably the price as he remember it when he last actually had to be concerned about the price of Taco Bell tacos. Even if he has gone to a Taco Bell in recent months and has seen the prices as you have stated them, to him it still has the feel of free because he has millions of dollars. So what he is noticing when he looks at the price on the menu is how cheap everything is, and seemingly free, but he doesn’t actually pay attention to the dollar sign. Then when he gets in the studio and talks about them and how cheap and almost free they are, he is speaking from his perspective, not from the average person’s who whould dissagre with him on that. And when he says an actual price, as he did not note the actual price on the current menu, he defaults back to the only Taco Bell prices he still has in his head, from years ago.

      I almost never go to Taco Bell when getting fast food for the very reason that it is too expensive. It’s very easy to pay around $5 for next to no food, and not great food at that. It’s not that $5 is expensive, but if I’m going to get fast food any way I would sooner spend that on Carl’s Jr and get something with substance to it for my money.

      I wish Taco Bell was as cheap as he says. I would go there all the time if that were the case, but it’s not. Adam needs to drop that bit from his repertoire. It’s not funny, because it’s not true and none of his listeners can relate, and it just goes to show how out of touch with average, none rich people Adam really is.

    • RoyalDryness

      Like a few others said, Adam way under-exaggerates how much many things that he sees as “practically free” thus undermining his own argument. The truth is Taco Bell is fairly cheap, but when you start taking about getting 10 tacos for 4 bucks it becomes unbelievable and people just tune it out because it’s ridiculous,

    Some of you people are so dumb. Do you think they give guests personality tests before booking them?? No they dont. Also, is Jakob Dylan supposed to totally change the way he is because he was invited on a podcast to plug his new album. No he doesnt. He probably wont be invited back, but there is no way for them to know how he is going to act. Idiots.

  71. Speed-man!

    The reason that there haven’t been any Latino guests lately is mostly because very few Latinos do anything noteworthy. He did showcase George Lopez’s special, which had “Lowrider” playing as the intro music. You know, because there is no better song for Latinos than Lowrider.

    Adam–totally agree with cabbies (I’ve taken the airport cab from MSP to Saint Paul, so I can sympathize) lacking respect for their passengers. I’ve been in clean ones and town cars which is such a torture to end up in poorly maintained cab. Unfortunately I’ve also been in a cab (a few months ago) where the driver was smoking through an open window–in Minnesota during February.

    If there were a minimum sense of pride by the cab company owners to sell their business as advertising: ‘before our drivers start their shift, they will be dressed in a clean polo or oxford shirt with our logo, with no body odor or cologne, and in a clean cab equipped with audio & climate controls installed in the back seat.” they would be the busiest taxi operation on the planet.

    Even companies that use words like courtesy cab, star taxi, comfort ride, or other great catch phrases always seem to fall short. And I think taxi companies need to be a bit more selective in who can drive–some verbal, on-the-road, and ol factory testing is a good start.

    I have attended municipal meetings for taxi licensure as well and the cab companies are contstantly begging the city for more taxi permits–so you can feel free to blame local government for setting the bar pretty low and flooding the streets with idling taxis to shake down taxi drivers for thousands per year in fees.
