Drew brings up the event from Thursday and now interrupts Adam to explaining the Polyvagal theory from episode #090: Adam Carolla and Dr. Stephen Porges of the Dr. Drew podcast.

Adam is explaining his nature and how it relates to this new study Drew was listening to, regarding the sensitivity of people like Adam when it comes to sound.


Adam is explaining how he was never told about how this plays into noise and sleep, he’s explaining how he battled with this for years.

Drew is sharing how the Dr. in the lecture was pointing out how this could negatively effects kids and result in them misdiagnosed as ADD.

Adam is explaining that it’s not all sonic or audible with him, movement and other pieces play into it as well, Adam is making a sad point about wiring and assumption.


Adam is giving his take as a sane and rational human dealing with these people who choose to go through life living in crazy fiction and denying logic.

Adam is bringing up his car race from about a year and a half ago, he’s sharing how he did the math regarding the 935 Porsches that would catch up to him by lap number 7.

Adam is going very in depth on his reasoning and logic, he’s telling Drew about staring in a “wink mirror” and says that Drew might remember this from his childhood.


Adam is now seemingly breaking down some images of the race, he’s telling Drew about how he was almost clipped by these cars despite being aware of their presence.

NOPE! Adam is explaining how he wasn’t given the same lane for passing, Adam is telling Drew about how he would have ended up T-boning the idiot in front of him had he not pulled off into the sand.


Drew is telling Adam about having to bail for Loveline from the Benefit Show and Adam says he had fun hanging with Susan Pinsky without Drew around.

Adam is now setting up the latest footage for Drew and he’s telling him about the slide and Adam is once again taking the high road saying it wasn’t that guy’s fault, more his fault.

Dam says his hyper vigilance benefits him in the edit bay and other places where he notices things others cannot or will not, Adam is telling Drew about the NFL Carolla rule regarding the goal posts.


He’s going in depth on the decade of suffering he must endure until people remedy these mistakes with simple fixes.

Adam is bringing up the Denver vs. Cleveland “The Drive” NFL battle that ended with a kick that was unverifiable, Adam is explaining how history was irrevocably changed because of this one moment.

Adam says that was nearly 30 years ago and still hasn’t been remedied, Adam wants to know why the owner of the Cleveland Browns didn’t object and try to remedy this back in the late 80’s.


Adam just did a variant of his 2008 Joel McHale pool rant “NOTHING!” in reply to Drew trying to make excuses about the cost of these goal post extensions.

Adam is now sharing what would happen if an NFL team owner was told of mandatory renovations, assuming 10’s of million, only to find out it’s a 2200$ fix.

Drew is now launching into a live read.


Adam is now taking it back to prioritization and working big to small, Adam says everyone is sleepwalking through life in a haze, he’s bringing up the trip from August’s home the other morning, Adam saw a double line of cars waiting to turn left.

Gary is now on mic confirming that Adam went around the two lanes of cars backed up waiting on a red turn arrow, Adam is making a point about the uselessness of these red turn arrows.

Adam is now talking to Drew about the flashing yellow lights now in Pasadena and Adam is taking it back to “Verdugo Street” when picking up Mike August and the idiocy of having red turn arrows on such a straight street.


Adam is citing the smart people he knows and tries to communicate to regarding these turn arrows and how they seem to be unaware they even exist.

Adam is now saying that when 2 cars make it through an intersection when it changes, how about 3 cars instead, Adam is explaining how he is able to get 33% more traffic cycled through, but it’s actually 50% of what was going in previous, it becomes 33%.

Adam is feeling sorry for Jon who has now been abandoned by Adam’s mom for the past decade, Kim is explaining her status in life and how her mother reacted to them moving away from her area.


Adam has a hilarious “Golden Buttplug” reply and Drew jokes that Adam is now making everything about him, recreating Kim’s relationship with her mom.

Adam and Drew are giving super practical advice about trying to force things out of others that they don’t want to give, Adam says don’t set her up for falling into one category, he’s explaining how it works and how women can get caught up in this type of “steering” more often than men.
