Adam is now explaining the tip toeing around what booze does to you and even shipping costs, Adam is explaining he’s not allowed to say “shipping free or free shipping” but he can says shipping included.


Adam is now explaining the absence in logic that dictates these bizarre semantics and he calls back when he was making the label for Mangria and the controversy about the label for the white variant.

Adam says that Clay and Luis are coming in to promote their documentary, Adam was called out for using the term “doc” and fans pointed out his critiques of such people in his book, so now he will use documentary instead.

Alison calls him out for making her use the term “cans” over headphones, thinking it’s an abbreviation thing, not aware it’s an old radio thing, and it’s a sign if you’re amateur or professional.


Adam explains why he got into radio, to see the guy pointing through the glass, the moving VU meters etc.

Adam says that’s why he makes Maxipada give him the finger, the big smelly finger instead of a lazy head nod.

BB wants to know about people calling thing ep’s or sodes, I use ep all the time, it’s proper.


Adam explains his experience with these 3D printers as shown in the documentary and he explains why the adjustable wrench is more impressive than organs.

Alison wants to know what material you use for these printers, BB is now explaining it to her as well.

Adam says its ABS plastic and is explaining what was nice for him, in this case he needed a plastic, black plastic bezel switch for his Lamborghini, and so he didn’t need to paint it or cast it out of sand and get a metal version.


BB explains the impetus for the movie about trying to get consumer level 3D printers available to everyone. Adam says he likes all the stuff in the doc and the technology on display.

Adam is now explaining the third detail and the podcast festival, Adam says Telepictures is fucking horrible and everything got everything they wanted except Adam.

Adam says he doesn’t have anything against Ralph, he says they get along fine and that probably means he hasn’t spoken to Ralph in some time, Ralph has a different story on his podcast about their current state of friendship.
