Adam is opening the show to a great intro from Dawson and an equally solid #TopDrop, Adam is explaining that someone tweeted him about someone mocking Adam.

BB is jumping in to explain that he was the one who tweeted Adam, hilarious back and forth between Adam and Alison, BB is now explaining the connection involving his longtime friend Rich.


Adam is officially declaring he no longer needs zucchini in his meals while simultaneously defeating the arguments about deep frying it with some choice cannibalism comedy involving his own child, comedy gold!

“Cucumbers mock Zucchini in the flavor department” – Adam Carolla, Adam is now explaining how anything can be used as a substrate for deep frying.

Adam wants all of us to start a dialogue about zucchini, great additions from Alison and BB, Adam is now waxing poetic on the lonely beet, BB has a great one liner to top it.


Adam is demonstrating his range by bringing up Jesse Jackson speaking of Treyvon Martin, calling him “boy” and how rare and unusual it was to hear the term being used by the Democratic Party in contrast to “young man” being used by the republicans and the right.

Alison seems to dig Adam’s point and gets the weight of the stark contrast, BB is getting Adam to flesh it out more in response to BB’s joke reply.

Dawson is now on mic to defend the Zucchini and Adam is joking about his future with the company in response, nice back and forth.

They’re now playing the local tech report and Adam is responding to the points addressed in the video.

Adam is explaining the crowd funding model and the differences between it and just giving money, he’s got a nice “Oasis” analogy that Alison is playing along with nicely.


Adam is now taking it back to “The Hammer” and he’s trying to explain what a film being “closed” means and is explaining how his director and editor did the thing that nobody should ever do to him.

He’s now citing the one scene that bothered him while screening the film at Tribeca with Howard Stern and his wife Beth in attendance to boot.

Adam is now explaining the move pulled by the director and the editor regarding the phantom truck lumber, his reaction is priceless.


Adam is back to the familiar topic of people unknowingly gaslighting him out of laziness. Hubris and or ignorance and the nature of the “No Roll’s” he often finds himself in with other people.

This is a very rare untold story, even during the very in depth coverage of the making of the film on the morning show in 2007 this wasn’t fully divulged/discussed.

Alison is getting Adam to spell out the thing that nobody should ever do, he’s now relaying the “No Roll” and how he will walk people through every step of his “I’m not calling you a liar but …”


Adam is now sharing an anecdote from a recent “Ace on the House” recording with Ray where he took credit for his advice segment titled “Just the Tip” that was actually titled by a fan on twitter.

Adam is explaining how Matt Fondiler tried something similar with his dad’s shoes he was sporting and attempting to deny, Matt reminded him of the exemplary profiling.

Alison has a great reaction to Adam’s description of Ray being clever, Alison has a wise point about Adam hating people who take a 2nd and unnecessary conversational lap but when he does it, he often gets the information the person is hoarding.


Adam has a funny one liner about the rubbing compound not being what it sounds like and now Adam is going in depth on why Matt’s dad shoes bumped him.

Adam is now joking about Israeli airport vending machines in response to Alison’s half of a point about Israeli airport profiling, Adam’s got a great bit of mouth sound effects, gold!

Adam claims to have some inside info that Alison wants him to divulge, he’s kind of blowing past it.


2nd blog choices are Alec, William or Stephen Baldwin and Adam once again claims to have some insight

Adam and BB are remarking on how bizarre it is that anyone even brought up the topic of trying to remove one of the founding sports from the Olympic Games.

Adam is now full on blaming Lynch and his advanced psychological tactics.


5th blog choices are Larry King, Bill Maher and Al Sharpton.

Adam is now calling for a catch weight for Al Sharpton, citing his extreme weight changes and how neither super heavy weight nor bantam weight seem to work for his head size, comedy gold!

Adam has a funny black herring one liner and an even funnier comment about how many times one is allowed to say the name Lynch and Al Sharpton in the same sentence, brilliant word play!


Adam is doing a personal capital live read, working in the “Veal & Venison” bit from #Classic Loveline.

They’re back from break and they have a #Classic Loveline clip found by Producer Gary.


Ian Ziering is making his ACS debut after doing a couple great #Classic Loveline appearances, along with “Sharknado” director Anthony also making his ACS debut and he seems to be a daily listener, awesome!

Alison is explaining how she just found out she was offered a role in the movie “Sharknado” they’re promoting.

Ian is explaining what about this “piece of poop” interested him and has a nice callback to 90210, Adam still has love for the OG series and BB has a nice bit of drop work that Ian doesn’t seem too annoyed by.

Adam is complimenting Ian on his incredible shape and he’s telling them about wrapping up a multi week run with the “Chippendales”.
