Adam opens the show to a “struggling single mother” intro and Adam is immediately jumping on the topic, BB is asking him about his point about the way we treat single mothers, as if they were born with 7 kids in tow and no employment.

Adam brings up the interview he had with a nice guy from NPR where he presented the idea/question of what would happen if all people waited until 30 to have children.

Adam is going beat by beat with the thread of logic he was weaving, Gina has a great point and Adam now transitions to the way the right is hypocritical about abortion and the morning after pill the cure to all of their pain and the left and their hypocrisy with smoking and the cure known as vaping/water vapor.

Brian tells them about his speaking engagements and how he knows what the crowd wants to hear and starts things out explaining the more nuanced way they should be pursuing their career and finding an agent.

Adam has a great standup comedy point, how at an open mic it’s impossible to presume whom has the talent to be there and the guy who looks the part might be the worst at comedy, funny “Guy from the Zima commercials in the 90’s” reference.

Brian is now explaining his experience of the time he guested and Adam assumed someone had hijacked the show, unaware of the guest booking.
