Adam opens the show talking about the upcoming Ward vs. Kovalev 2 fight on HBO this weekend, and how quickly his rich and successful friends get back to him. Adam then talks to a fan about cheap parents and life in Israel. After that, Adam takes a call from Sam Gordon, and chats with her about her amazing highlight reel and owning her skills as a football player. She explains that she wants to play football at the high school level, but feels that she has to focus on soccer because of her size. Adam also asks her about surprising injuries, and the future of women playing professional football. Before the break, Adam takes more calls about identifying fools, ‘me days’ at work, and teaching the kids how to fire a gun.
Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys is in studio next, and Adam talks to him about his new solo album, ‘Waiting on a Song’. Adam asks Dan about how to keep your songs sounding original, what some of his musical influences are, and the early days of The Black Keys. They also talk about how the music business has changed, the benefits of working with a record label, and how different music genres fare in today’s digital culture. Gina begins the news talking about Dennis Rodman’s return to North Korea, as well as the release of an American student held prisoner there. They also talk about the Golden State Warriors unanimously declining their visit to the White House, catching ‘porch pirates’, and Richard Hammond’s car accident. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about some cool Hollywood items up for auction.
