Show Page

Adam opens the show with a “good pizza in Los Angeles” intro, he welcomes BB and Gina back to the show and BB has a “We’ll be back” #TopDrop in honor of them being back in studio together after the week Adam was out of town.

Adam thanks Norm Pattiz the man responsible for Loveline and a myriad of other some would argue great achievements and the guy who brought me into the Classic Loveline fold, apparently Norm provided a private jet and Adam says he’s like the rich uncle he never had.

Adam explains it was him, Mike August, Chris Maxipada (Laxamana) and of course Sonny, Adam says he’s enjoying this life through Chris’ enjoying free food and the luxury of the fringe benefits of celebrity and wealth.


Adam is bringing up the total cost for the trip, telling them about cutting through a red light and describes the colossal pussy who wouldn’t stop honking at him, Adam says there is a little dispute over whom honked.

Chris is confirming it had to the be first guy behind them and Adam says the light cycled twice and calls Adam’s move “ballsy” and further describes the scene.

Adam says if a judge ever asked him about his driving choices he would reply with shouting and a class action lawsuit for the city stealing his life away.
Adam calls the horn the “pussy button” much to the delight of Chris, I love this ranting!

Gina asks Chris if he was a little bit afraid and Matt confirms they all did a bit of a woo/wee noise and Gina nicely references Natalia and her zip line glee.

Adam is further describing why this was safe, it took place in Van Nuys and he tells the staff to try and book the people in charge of traffic in the city.

Adam says fuck everyone and further urges people to liberate themselves with civil disobedience, to help change broken laws and this flawed system.


Adam is describing how much joy Sonny experienced in the private jet and Chris confirms how spectacular it was for him, he says he can’t even describe it, Adam and he enjoyed some high grade scotch, sounds wonderful!


Adam is talking about the joys of private flight and now getting to full and self-service gas stations, Adam is remarking on the photo of them boarding the private jet.

Adam says they price private jets like they don’t want you to use them, saying it’s 6k to get out of the hangar and then 10k per hour, this flight he mentioned was 8k.

Adam is asking everyone to confirm how rad and well behaved Sonny is, he says he seems to secretly want to get on stage with Adam.


This kid sounds dynamite, Adam is having Chris confirm how much time they spent signing after the screening of ‘Winning’ and confirms that he never complained once, Gina compliments his slick suit and Adam tells them about his Kaleidescape server that Lynette loaded up all of the family home movies onto.

Adam is describing the kids and how they are so much the people they were even at 10months, Adam is further praising the quiet way Sonny played with his rubix cube as not to wake daddy the next morning, Gina has a nice reaction.


Gina asks how Sonny got home with Nate and Chris, Adam says there was a little controversy regarding the way he was coaching Sonny up the whole time to empower him in the hotel.

Adam is explaining how Sonny was getting ready to leave and sent him down to the lobby, Adam told him he wasn’t going to walk him to the lobby and describes how Chris sent him a confirmation text 3min later.

Adam felt very safe giving him the independence to walk to the lobby on his own, very cool that is a good move. Adam fears he could catch heat at home for bringing this up (sorry dude you pay me to do this).


Adam is now doing a live read


Adam is explaining how the ride with Mario ending up going, Adam was prepped to be doing 180mph with a 73yr old driver and how people were freaking him out regarding the lack of banked turns at Indy.

Adam shares a “life’s too precious” comment he heard before he did it, Adam says that everything for racing is built for guys under 6ft, he says it adds a scary unsettling layer to the experience.

Adam says that a lot of it seems not well thought out, Adam is now lamenting the lack of communication and proper planning before they showed up.


Adam is describing how the fire proof helmet liner balaclava and how he noticed as he put it on that it was frayed out and past it’s prime, like “one big foreskin over a very small cock” and Gina goes along with it, BB has comments as well.

Adam is back to the way they got lucky on the shoe size guess and wants to know why they didn’t just email it, Gina asks if Adam knew all of the names of the various famous drivers.

Adam is now describing the coffee he was offered in NYC and how the producer gave him way too much cream in his coffee, she says she likes a lot so she cut her allotment in half, Adam asked for just a splash and Gina mocks the woman’s logic.

The producer claimed that instant Starbucks tasted better than the regular and Adam says if that’s true then they would be out of business.

Adam is talking about the head sock/balaclava he was wearing, Adam is describing how Mario couldn’t get up to full speed due to the events of the day preceding them on the course.

Adam is now joking about being on a moped behind Jeffery Dahmer while sporting dolphin shorts it would still be “hot” to drive around Indy, so 100mph in an F1 car is still pretty great.

Adam is even killing this with the stilted host, holy shit “I will not stop you” and now they get back to the clip after Gina and BB both comment.

Adam is commenting on the host being “shut out of the tour” for his last book tour, the host brings up Trip Adam’s old Program director and then claims that Howard Lepidus created ‘The Man Show’ and takes credit for it.

The host points out that Howard’s name is on it (much like his favorite booth at his local buffet) and Adam is trying to be kind in his reply.


BB claims that Howard must come up all of the time on the show, they now play a clip of the hosts reacting to him after he was off the line.

These hosts are incompetent and completely wrong, Gary says that one of them went on to say that Adam and Lynette took a road trip with Howard and his wife, perhaps referring to the Adam and Dr. Drew live tour.

Adam says he doesn’t want to talk about these people on his short book themed interviews, Gina and BB are further reacting to these piles of shit.


Gary is now on the liner adding some funny backstory that puts Adam in a better mood, Gina says the listeners to her show really enjoyed his appearance.

Adam says the “maybe he’s got in for me” mindset of egotistical 4th tier radio show hosts thinking he even know they exists, they might as well include half of the population of China.

Adam is recalling the time she guested on ACS #669 from 2011, I remember first listening to that one with an ex-girlfriend in the woods outside of her college dorm, solid episode! Riki was podcast gold.

Now BB is chiming in with his theory that Adam never met Riki as she was on ACS #432 before that in 2010 when Doug Benson was guest hosting when Adam was busy with his 9 other gigs at the time.

BB is gas lighting Adam and is forgetting about the 2nd episode, Adam is now explaining how men should be attracted to women of all types.

Gina’s News

1st Story is on the sentencing for Ross Ulbricht, Gina brings up the recent appearance of Alex Winter on the ACS #1575 promoting ‘Deep Web’ his new excellent, heartbreaking and masterfully constructed documentary covering ‘The Silk Road’ available for free on Epix.

Adam is now asking if we can’t just lock up the violent criminals and offenders of the world and instead make use of geniuses like Ross, Adam wants a better way to punish him.

BB has a funny “earn your way out of prison by fixing the medical system” idea that Natasha seems to love.

Adam is further bringing up his idea and Gary is now misinforming Adam and Gina backs him up saying that Ross ordered two murders, this was recorded before the doc premiered so they probably don’t know.


Actual multiple people were using the ‘Dread Pirate Robert’s login and the FBI has several suspects, the “non-biased Judge” then overruled the defense saying they could not bring up the prosecution’s own evidence regarding their multiple suspects nor the two federal agents who allegedly stole over 1.5 million in bitcoin and transferred it into their personal accounts.

Ross may be framed, at the very least this is entrapment as the federal agent brought the topic of murder up and then further baited the person using that login to agree to more murders, in all of the murder cases not one person was dead and two of the names are fictitious.

The murder charges were never filed but left on the court documents in order to subconsciously prejudice the jury against Ross and prevent him from receiving a fair trial.


Gary is now sharing the details as he knows them, Natasha says she would kill them too.
