Adam opens the show with Anna in studio making her ACS debut, she never guested on Loveline despite having success in the early 2000’s and never guested on the KLSX morning show either despite its proximity to her mid/late 00’s series of movies, like ships in the night she never got to be on air with Adam until her own podcast.
As listeners to The Film Vault are aware BB is a huge fan of Anna’s work and often brings up her roles, in particular her work in ‘Just Friends’ from 2005, so it’s a countdown to him either jizzing in his pants or getting weirdly aggressive with the “comedy” aimed at Adam, dominance hierarchy stuff.
Adam has an excited “share” intro with Anna chiming in, Adam talks about getting new listeners via people turning their friends and family onto the show.
BB has a Matt Fondiler ‘What Up Boss’ #TopDrop in honor of attending Matt’s bachelor party over the weekend, Adam says Matt was in bad shape and BB has a killer one liner asking when he’s not, Gary gets on mic after clearly laughing in the booth.
Adam is talking about Matt crying over his lost cat and he welcomes Anna to the show.
Adam tells her she might have to change her podcast title to “Qualified” and she talks about how excited she was when Adam pulled up.
Adam asks why and she says he’s her fantasy and huge. BB will either joke about beating off to this or actually beat off to this and possibly still joke about it, he is going to get some use out of this new drop.
Adam says they took phone calls and Anna perhaps cares too much, his only criticism and he talks about learning to move from his years in morning radio.

Adam asks if we should teach our kids to do stuff they needn’t do to stay sharp, Anna talks about how he can do certain things she cannot.

BB brings up mud runs and Adam jokes about hosting the X Games with Jimmy Kimmel back in the late 90’s and BB mocks him, Anna yells about BB being mean, he misread her.
Adam is talking about putting two pieces of wood together in the garage and Anna is telling them about shooting locally in studio while Chris is trekking around the globe filming movies.
Anna talks about how they deal with the separation and how they travel and even skype over dinner and try hard to interact and she has some great points about keeping the spark alive.
Anna shares how Chris wants to make homemade sausage and she shares his dream to get 200 acres in Washington state and raise cows to then create and give away sausage to people as gifts.
Adam says sign up Jimmy Kimmel and David Alan Grier and BB jokes about having the same conversation over the weekend at Matt’s bachelor party, is he serious? Weird delivery.

Anan brings up ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ and Adam tries to tell Anna that BB won 100k on the show, talking him up, but she’s having another conversation and talking to Gina and doesn’t acknowledge it.
Anna asks them to all come visit and talks about not being able to slaughter pigs, Adam says he can’t fish as he can’t bait a hook and can’t kill things.
Anna says Adam could come fix the tin roof and raise her barn, but he must make a lumber run when the pig gets slaughtered, he can’t do it, he gets weird.
Anna talks about Adam eating meat and being unable to kill animals and she shares her husband’s perhaps superior ethos about meat and killing his own food.

Anna asks Gina how cynical Adam is and Chris offers up the concerns about this dog becoming a crutch, Adam is talking about the unintended consequences and how his daughter is now in charge, but letting a dog being assigned to her essentially farms out the work and responsibility, she will be weakened without the dog.
Adam says dogs must be pissed that they used to be able to sit around and please humans with cute things instead of sniffing for cancer or raiding hostile encampments in the middle east, cave searching military dogs.
Adam says that for the military dogs at least Vietnam was a good place for them to find a nice patch of greenery to take a shit, in the middle east it’s all one giant ash tray.
Anna says they should get a regular dog and just enjoy it and Adam is talking about his dog chewing up his mats and Chris gives Adam a compliment while acknowledging that they are rolling calls.
Chris tells them how he was able to put together a nice in house production suite after listening to Adam.
