12 Jan David Rubenstein
Adam opens today’s podcast sharing his thoughts on how horror movies jumped the shark a long time ago. He goes on to discuss the Pope’s comments about humans being selfish, and then plays a very disturbing clip from his recent viewing of The Love Boat. Jeff Ross then calls in to share some thoughts on Bob Saget, and Bob’s unlikely friendship with John Mayer. Adam then plays a clip of today’s guest, David Rubenstein, interviewing Fauci about pandemics back in 2019, and contrasts it to the way Fauci actually handled the pandemic. Before the break, Adam introduces ‘1970s Guy’.
Adam welcomes David Rubenstein to the podcast at the top of Part 2. The guys talk about how David first came to interview Fauci prior to the pandemic, and the notion that we’ve become a nation of interviewers. Adam then asks David about ‘The Giving Pledge’, and the guys go on to discuss David’s career path, thoughts on the country’s current challenges, and how money and happiness are not mutually exclusive. Later they discuss the Bernie Madoff scandal, the truth about campaign funds, and why politicians need to stop arguing (but never will). In the last part of the show, Gina reads news stories about the first man to receive a heart transplant from a pig, Clay Aiken running for congress again, the death of Magawa the mine-sniffing rat, updates on the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and the death of GLOW icon Deanna Booher.
