Adam is bringing up the severed arm of a hobo/horse apple idea he had about the women who feed horses with their mouths, Adam is citing a few more examples.


Adam is explaining how “Gay dude who sunbathes naked on apartment lawn” Adam is describing the original premise and the confusing addition of the word “Naked.”

He’s really breaking it down.

Adam is explaining his process trying to figure out how the word got in there, he immediately ruled out Mike Lynch, almost referring to him as his 2nd eyes, a vote of confidence indeed.


Adam just revealed that the publisher added it, he’s explaining why and how, he’s telling them about Mike’s reaction to the mistake.

Adam is quoting Mike Lynch and bonding with BB over the frustration of a “locked” book with errors that can’t be fixed and worse, which were caused by someone else.

Adam wants to know where “naked” came from and Dawson gets on mic to explain Adam’s theory from the recording session is probably right.

Adam is now doing a live read, Alison is joining him for Life Lock.


Gary is now reading the excerpt from Adam’s book, nice job.

They’re now playing the new Rich Banks song “Some things Rosen just doesn’t understand” Adam and Alison both object to a mistake in the lyrics, regarding pregnancy, breastfeeding and menstruation.

Alison wants to know if that’s the first time he’s rapped for a parody song and it’s the first I can recall, but there might be one I’m forgetting from the KLSX days, he’s done hundreds of them.


Q and Ace

1st Caller Tami, she wants to know why Adam adding a gender to the aspect of his daughter’s personality that likes him more now that he’s on T.V.

Tami is either forgetting or conveniently leaving off the part where Dr. Drew insists this is distinctively female and has to do with the biological and brain differences in men and women.

Adam is giving some great examples to prove his theory, Ben Affleck dating Susan Boyle and the ugliest Go Go vs. hot hostess.

Alison has a firsthand account as the “not most attractive” member of a band, hilarious beat off double entendre and then one liner, double joke.

Adam admits most of his shows are shitty, Alison is defending “The Facts of Life” and says it actually holds up along with the nostalgia she has for it.


3rd Caller John, he has an Alison’s bush joke and quasi plug for Nature Box.

John is making a point about conservative idealists who look upon the fake morality of 1950’s TV to base how they would like reality to be shaped, John admits the question could be insulting.

John is presuming that Adam’s is one of these people and also right wing.

Adam is explaining that she “gave her word” about keeping his home safe for the filming they asked him about a couple weeks back.

Adam is now doing a live read with BB, “I know Tires!” – Adam for Tire Rack


3rd Caller Mark, Adam has a killer “Alison’s hairy bush” opening joke, Mark wants to know why Adam’s parents kept having kids after they were so disaffected after his sister was born.

Adam is saying it’s a good question and not getting offended like Mark had feared, Adam says he’s never got into the “mistake” discussion with his parents and he’s citing his lack of a middle name, as well as his dad and his mom’s responses that were both widely unsatisfying.

Adam is now citing his parent’s lack of awareness and presence at The Feast of San Gennaro as another example of what kinds of people they are.


Adam is explaining how whipped up he would be to witness his son win the Toyota Celebrity Grand Prix, Adam says he thinks his parents do feel connected, they don’t notice how weird this is.
