Adam opens the show by asking Mike Judge about the return of Beavis and Butthead. Adam says that the show used to crack him up, and Mike says that while the two animated stars are still the same, they’ll now be making fun of contemporary MTV programming like Jersey Shore and various music videos. Adam also praises some of Mike’s other movies, all of which have become classics despite originally flying under the radar.
Adam then talks to Mike about his relationship with his parents and growing up in New Mexico. Mike talks about pursuing a degree in Physics, and the struggle that ensued after he graduated to find a job that he liked. All the while he’d been thinking about comedy and music, and he talks about how he eventually transitioned into a career that would allow him to engage in both. Adam also asks about the origins of the characters of Beavis and Butthead, and congratulates Mike on 13 seasons of King of the Hill.
In the last part of the show, the guys talk about being a celebrity and the love-hate relationship of being recognized in public. Mike tells stories of being with famous people when they are recognized, and admits it’s kind of nice to only get recognized himself only once every couple of months. As the show wraps up, Adam talks about his made-up middle name, and the guys complain about airport workers doing nothing of use on the job.
