Adam opens the show with a sped up and high pitched standard intro, Adam talks about doing this podcast gig since his kids were very young.
Adam jokes about them having a black president for their entire time on earth and in this country and their dad working in podcasting.
Adam comments on the next generation talking about their parents and their gigs, there will be a lot of different jobs listed, not 40 yrs. Driving a garbage truck and dying two weeks after retiring, maybe that person had a rich life but we all presume they didn’t.
Adam is bringing up the “Yabba Dabba Doo!” approach to life, work your nine to 5 job and then enjoy your weekends and have a good life.
Adam works this topic back into the shrinking middle class concept and the notion of a “work week” in the modern era where even the weekends are jam-packed with traffic now.
Adam says he used to know when Friday was and when Sunday night was when he was working miserable jobs.
Adam talks about the celebrating that his friends and he would do when the school year ended and contrasts it to his kids and their lackadaisical awareness of summer break and indifference to going to school or having a day off, it’s not miserable for them like it was for Adam and his peers.
Adam and Drew both think we need to redefine what the middle class is and he brings up Elvis Presley and his impressive technology of the early 1970’s and jokes about someone trying to give that gear to Caelan who would not only reject it but also make the King watch him defecate on it before he was allowed to leave.
Adam is now getting to some numbers and breaking down family dynamics and Adam asks how many people are signing off on the traditional approach to marriage, family and work.
1st Caller Evan, he’s very complimentary and reads what he wrote down, he brings up Adam’s “no self-esteem” statements and Drew thinks he’s confusing multiple phenomena, Adam says feeling good about yourself can get you killed.
Adam says he doesn’t want his son to ever ask a guy to step outside to fight when out at a bar if he doesn’t have the skills to back it up, self-confidence could get you killed there or behind the wheel of a car at a rate of speed you’re not skilled for.
Adam and Drew both talk about honest assessments of their worth and Adam talks about preparing for the Pixar table read, he has little to no experience at table reads and didn’t want to humiliate himself or fuck up the proceedings with his limited reading skillset.
Adam asks why we keep discussing luck and self-esteem, Adam says the universe is neither good nor evil, it’s just there and gets into the participation trophy generation and the super retarded logic that results in these kids not excelling.
Adam goes back to Evan and he says it’s easy for him to slip back into a childhood mindset, saying that a raised voice can send him shrinking back into an immature way of thinking, a childhood mentality.
Drew says that’s trauma and you can’t whitewash it, you need to get it worked on and they move on to a live read.
Adam is doing a True Car Live Read
Small, Medium and Large RS-7 edition
2nd Caller Chris form Orlando, he wants to thank Dr. Drew for the Prostate check advice and shares his story of a random screening that led to the discovery of his prostate cancer.
Chris goes into his ethnic heritage and Drew tells him to keep checking and they move on, Adam likes the “will do” as a slogan for a talking piece of poo, “Will Doo” and “Can Doo” like Mr. Hankey the Christmas poo from ‘South Park’ and they riff about the other bathroom objects that will talk in the ‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse’ method.
Adam and Drew are now riffing about ‘Clutch Cargo’ and Gary pulls up some clips, Dr. Drew shares that his son reminded him of the fact John Williams did the music for ‘Gilligan’s Island’ and he cites a recent Sherwood Schwartz conversation he had.
Adam is now bringing up Sid and Marty Krofft, Adam has a choices angle on this and explains it with car options in the modern era and takes a quick survey of what everyone owns.
Gary gets on mic and he explains that he was so scarred by his first American car he might not go back ever, he messes up Sherwood Schwartz’s name and Adam is now sharing his bounty for the ‘Dora The Explorer’ writer spec script challenge with Drew and Gary has a bit of an update.
3rd Caller Michael he thanks them and tells Drew he got him into his current profession and he says he’s working for an immunotherapy lab and Drew thinks this is the future of cancer research and treatment.
Michael is now telling Adam about their work and Adam jokes about the appearance of Charlie Sheen’s doctor on ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ and Michael is telling them about his adopted daughter and his fear about telling her that he’s not her biological father.
Adam says he would say never tell her but every hurt “victim” asshole he meets have the “why didn’t they tell me!?” mantra, Adam brings up the ethnicity angle and asks if that will be something they can’t ignore.
Dr. Drew says dad doesn’t have the same impact as mom leaving, but brings up the realistic damage that could be caused by telling her that her biological father left.
Adam asks how could it help and brings up how selfish this decision is, it puts the kid in a weird position and Drew brings up the historical stats on men raising non biological children.
Drew is doing a Live Read for ‘Famously Single’ on E!
Adam and Dr. Drew give out the plugs and wrap up the show with Dr. Drew saying that on his other show ‘This Life’ he and Bob Forrest “are really helping people” which could be misconstrued, good show though!
