Adam says he can’t have an honest conversation with Drew and Bruce on air, people have two modes where they either disagree or just shut the fuck up because they’re cowards.
Adam says people are scared to tell the truth and it would be like if doctors were afraid to tell their patients they had AIDS, that’s not serving the patient and Bruce brings up the risk of being fired from a day job for sharing your opinions.,
Bruce has an example using patient’s information, Adam is saying he just using that as an example to bring up the black lives matter stuff.

Adam switch plates not switchblades Edition
Adam is asking Bruce about the seizure alert dog he wants to know why a dog would work better that medication, Adam is telling Bruce what’s going on with his feeble mind as he mistakes switch plates for switchblades.
Adam says Bruce is doing an autocorrect that his father is rolling around his grave because he doesn’t know what a switch plate is the cover used for switches like light switches.
