Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam, Alison and Bryan talk about the Sandusky scandal, and how the cuddling part is especially creepy. Adam also complains about fake Christmas trees, and gives his recipe for delicious, easy-to-make cranberry sauce. Alison then starts with news with stories about dolphin death, overpaid actors, and why Adam Sandler’s latest film is terrible.

Adam talks about his first facial massage, and breaks down an unimpressive photo that sold for millions of dollars. He then jumps to the phones to talk with callers about their Holiday Disaster stories, and learns about a couple alcoholic breakdowns and DEA drug busts.

Author Barry Eisler joins the podcast next, and talks about turning down a major book deal so he could self-publish his books through Amazon instead. Adam relates the book industry to the auto insurance industry, which is equally ‘old-school.’ Adam then relates some domestic issues with the housekeeping, and the show wraps up with a discussion about Barry Eisler’s service in the CIA, as well as why you can’t joke with a guy giving a polygraph.
