Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam complains about the mildew in his shoes, and silly Year In Review shows. He proposes that the lists would be more interesting if they were talking about things that happened 20 years ago. Adam also discusses having to pay his assistant for the week, even though he’ll be going into surgery on a Monday.

Alison starts the news with the video of soldiers peeing on Taliban corpses. Adam suggests that the Taliban will always hate us, so the video will not be used as a recruitment tool, even if some people think it will. The guys also talk about a controversial safe sex video, and workers in an X-Box factory threatening suicide. Adam recalls why he hates video games, and talks about trying to get a picture of himself playing an X-Box he gave as a gift.

Later in the show, Adam jumps to the phones. The first caller wants to know which charity Adam is playing for on Celebrity Apprentice, and Adam recalls his experience being a Catholic Big Brother. Adam also tells a story about the Moore Theater in Seattle, and wraps the show ranting about the trashiness of LA.

    I kinda agree with Adam on the Pissing Marines of 3/2 but if those were Afghans pissing on dead Americans I would be fucking livid and looking to go on a 3rd tour in the mid east. I can picture scenarios where these Marines felt justified doing this but don’t record it ya morons.

      I always have trouble w/the Carolla app for android. The buffer drops out like every 5 minutes and I hear the super annoying ding and, “an error occurred while playing episode. playing again.” Maybe it’s just my phone.

      Miss Shegas01-12-2012

      I hadn’t thought of it, but I’m convinced that you are 100% correct.

      Soaking wet, only INSIDE the bag. Sounds like piss.
      Additionally, having lived with total college drunks, I can confirm that piss will mildew like that, if not discovered and cleaned up immediately. Yeah.

    I like to listen adams rants, but everytime he talks about forgein politics he is just so way-off.
    Example almost every western country are already trying to eliminete terrorism but just waaay more subtle way. Also I think that usa isn’t in danger to lose freedom like every USAA commercial suggest so why are we using so much money to wars?

    • Daniel
      Daniel01-12-2012

      I’ve got to agree, its these rants that make me go off the show for a while

    • donewithidiots
      donewithidiots01-12-2012

      It’s painful to see libtard posts going after Adams political views. Especially when they’re based on evidence. Spain bows to the train bomber and that’s after they withdrew troops. Spain has projected weakness and has paid for it. Parents need to make sure those public schools stop churning out participation trophy embryos that end up occupying wall street.

    • Miguel
      Miguel01-13-2012

      Why don’t you worry about your own country? Adam is spot on. All his rants are based on common-sense and logic.

      Cocky sniff, coined by Dan McDowell of BaD radio. Much better than saying “long self-satisfied sniff”

    Bobby01-12-2012

    Good pod. Also listened to latest “For Crying Out Loud” episode in which Lynette and Adam do a little fussing at each other and the two kids grab some airtime. I hope Adam lives to be a hundred years old but when he does leave this earth I believe he’s going to meet that “make believe guy in the sky”. Adam’s obviously a sharp dude. As such I wish he would listen to the brilliant former atheist C.S. Lewis’s book (audio) “Mere Christianity”. It takes a very calm reasoned intellectual approach that is immensely powerful and has converted zillions of atheists in the 70 years since its release.

    • Tony
      Tony01-12-2012

      @Bobby I’d love to see some numbers to back up your “zillions” claim. To admit to being an atheist at this point is a conscious decision. Most of us have thought it out and have come to the conclusion ourselves that religion is bogus on our own. You believe what you believe because of where you were born. You were born here so you’re a Christian. If you were born in Saudi Arabia you’d be a Muslim, and if you were born in India you’d be a Hindu. Unless you believe there is something particularly special about your geography then you shouldn’t find anything particularly special about your religion over all the zillions of other ones. After all, they can’t all be right. In fact Most of them dictate that only theirs is in fact correct. If you believe that a zillion – 1 religions are bogus why not just take the extra leap and include yours in the heap. Once you boil it down it’s pretty similar to many many others anyway.
      You’re entitled to your own beliefs, but please stop trying to push them on others, even if you are trying to be friendly. Envangelising is inherently pushy and dickish no matter how nice you are trying to come off.

    • Rex Montana
      Rex Montana01-12-2012

      If you think about existentialism and the Humanist Ethic that Sartre talked about, I.E. living an authentic life, realizing that because you know the “Good” you have to abide by it (Socrates/Plato said the same thing) it doesn’t really matter whether it’s because of God or not.

      One thing that’s common is: once you realize your place in the world you decide to shut up.

      That would be a bad career move for Adam.

      Okay Bobby, settle down. Go do your convertin’ somewhere else.

    • Matt
      Matt01-13-2012

      Why does everyone need to be saved and always take a moment to save someone? I think atheists need to start converting from other religions. So we can enlighten others to being good people without needing a rule book.

    Dylan Duddy01-12-2012

    I’m going to be honest. I fastfowarded, a new word i made up, to just the rant about L.A that Adam went on. Growing up in La Crescenta til i was 22 then moving to Oregon where i’ve been the last 4 years. I’m 26 now, just doing the math for Ace man cause i know he was like Gilbert Grape in mathematics during the school years. When u finally escape from L.A.(rim shot) it never gets old to hear about why one leaves that cesspool so don’t think ur it’s a bit gettin old cause us ex SoCos who now live in the northwest love to be reminded that were not in living the movie Falling Down a lil bit every day waking up in mini Mexico.

    • Rex Montana
      Rex Montana01-15-2012

      You are an intelligent young man about to ruin your life. And I’m being honest; you need to think about yourself — not Adam nor anyone else. Then think about what you want to do, and realize it’s nothing to do with you.

    What kind of half ass job are we getting with the show summary and images posted on this episode! Matt you really need to step up your game. I realize you work hard punishing the porcelain but you need to stop phoning in these summaries and photo documentations. Don’t you realize many people who stumble upon this website who have never heard Adam before will judge if they should listen to this podcast based n how nice the web pages look.

    Adam,

    I love the show. My favorite part of todays show was when you complain about how you have to pay for your “Personal Assistant” and “Nanny” to go on vacation. I can relate. Last Christmas I lost my job. I was unemployed for 10 months last year. Had to move in with my Mom so I didn’t take food stamps. Had no insurance. Got a job now with a 1/3 pay cut, but hey it’s a job. Us common folk need to stop worrying about Va-ja-ja surgeries or Terminal Brain Tumors and really think more about Nannies Vacations. I can’t imagine what you and Lynette would do without your Nanny for 7 days.

    Sincerely,

    Andrew

    What’s worse than a year in review. Predictions for next year. Here are predictions from 100 years ago that came true.

    This might make the room spin, but it was an engineer, not a spiritualist who made the predictions!

      I’ve been tempted to say “Fuck them”, but i don’t think that’s the goal. We can’t fuck them; it’s a Society (a group of friends).

    Why is the Rich Man, Poor Man book not a coffee table book? It would seem perfect for that? More exposure for Ace Man, shorter book that people can read through and discuss… why not Ace?

    Anyone know the name of the xbox game Adam was trying to play? I thought it was Medal of Honor :Pearl Harbor, but it doesn’t look like it. You start out in the bunk of the U.S.S. Arizona apparently.
