BB plays the drop from the last episode, making it seem like this wasn’t recorded right after it.
Adam explains that David Wild is in studio for a photography session with his son, for the aforementioned sitcom poster to be featured in ‘Road Hard’ and Adam plugs a comedian who never seems to make it to the show, they don’t know that yet, but we do!
David the most frequent guest of their show is sharing how excited his son is for this photo-shoot and Adam explains why you need an “angry teenager” for the shoot, the sitcom math of a family.
Adam is asking David about his latest project, he’s working with Ed Begley Jr. and Adam shares his great fondness for the man, he’s actually guested on the show and Adam is now telling them about shooting a Funny or Die piece with him and some other comedians at Griffith Park.

Adam is sharing how he impressed he was with Ed bicycling all the way to Griffith Park, Adam likes how Ed is not preachy about his environmentalism and social consciousness.
Adam says the 2nd part he loves about Ed, he does it because he can’t stand the waste, he riffs about the reality show with Ed and his wife, David seems unaware that Ed has done the show, he offers to extend and invite but has the tone of “I’m not sure he would do such a risqué show.”
David is now plugging the environmental media association and the raffle they’re holding, that will auction off a fuel cell vehicle, Adam jokes about it being like an e-cigarette.
Adam is now riffing about the “no you can’t smoke” policy and how everyone wants to tell everyone else what they can or can’t do, BB uses the morning after pill to make a great analogy.

Adam is now mocking the notion of the danger of water vapor, Adam is now reading one of his favorite tweets about Vancouver banning e-cigs.
“Is it that you don’t like cigarette smoke, or you don’t like people doing something you don’t want them to do? Is it that you don’t like liberty?”
Alison is now asking about Adam’s take on e-cigs in restaurants, Adam says he doesn’t like permeating anyone else’s space, but in a world wear a restaurant has 9 dogs, an e-cig is harmless.
Adam says he would prefer you take it outside to the patio but if you’re a booth away and he can’t smell it, he doesn’t care.
BB brings up watching “The Out Of Towner’s” and the smoking on display in restaurants, Alison brings up her dad’s desire to be in the mafia after Adam says that lighting someone’s cigarette is very Mafioso.
Adam is now joking about Alison’s dad dresses, much like Gomez Adam’s or the boss character in the movie ‘My Favorite Year’ and Alison confirms he has that very suit.
She tells them about childhood vacations to Las Vegas and how her dad would always request a booth with a phone to seem important.
Alison shares the story of asking what “Orgasm” means while in a crowded elevator with her mom after seeing a live show in Vegas, not sure if she’s told it on the ACS before, she has told it on her show ARIYNBF.

David asks if Adam ever me this band on Loveline and he says nope, they’re now playing more songs off the album and Adam says this album didn’t blow up until like 1989 after coming out in 1987.

Alison remembers Anna Hathaway, she would never stop throwing up, like the people who can’t stop hiccupping, Adam says she would need to find a giant loofa the size of Niagara Falls, plant it there and then slide down it multiple time, ass/tits and vagine each time.
Adam closes it out saying he was sitting in his backyard having a beer and decided to become reacquainted with music he lost touch with, he says he loves Natalie Merchant and the band ’10,000 Maniacs’ and BB compliments them and their sound, like early “fun” R.E.M.

Adam is doing an E-Voice live read.
They’re now heading to break with an “Adam and Eve” commercial and suddenly its 2009 podcasting again, definitely not a fluke, this is at least the 2nd show with this.
They’re back from break.
Q and Ace
1st Caller – Steve, he says they don’t know what’s in e-cigarettes but they’re banning them, they know what’s in regular cigarettes but instead they just put up graphic warning and pictures of cancerous organs.
Adam is now lamenting them outlawing water vapor.
Adam is now talking about the event episodes, Columbine and 9/11 and BB is now listing off a possible OJ verdict episode, that’s not online.
Steve says the dynamic is what he listens for and says he subscribed to the Adam and Drew show podcast, he wants to know why Adam doesn’t come back and guest host on Loveline.
Adam says at first Adam was trying to have respect for Stryker and now Mike, he comes on as a guest, he explains his sensitivity in disrupting the apple cart.
Adam is now going further in-depth on how he didn’t have to keep doing Loveline about 2 years in and it was actually difficult schedule wise but he loved Drew, the dynamic and the show so much he kept doing it.
Adam is now mocking his former program directors who used to tell him to roll more calls and how he refused to take their notes.
Adam is now using Stern as an example of someone who can break the format, he says normally you get fired for breaking the radio format/formulaic(s).
Adam is now getting to the speed of the format being an apology for not having an engaging host, Adam is doing an example of it right now.
2nd Caller – Jerry, he wants to give Adam a glimmer of hope and Adam rolls right through him radio style
3rd Caller – Chris, he has a question that’s a little political so it might take a minute and Adam is rolling through the call and Chris loves it.
Adam jokes about a band member of ‘Poco’ coming in studio and he skips over Chris’s question if anyone has ever been able to change Adam’s take on something politically.
Clearly he doesn’t know about the time Adam talked about legalizing weed with former L.A. Times editor Shelby Coffey III.
Alison is now asking if this is also a smokescreen for new listeners so they never tune in during the middle of something they don’t understand.
“if you spend 21min on 1 call, a lot can go wrong, but it you power though 25 calls in 20min not so much can go wrong” – Adam
Adam and BB are now making some counter points to the people who are married to the format, Adam says the format is the star of radio and the performers are interchangeable.
Adam talks about being banned from being on the air with Jimmy Kimmel at the same time, Adam still doesn’t know why.
David gets Adam to list the 3 heavy hitter comedians that Jack Silver wanted banned from the KLSX ACS, Adam is now mocking Jack Silver and his take on Joel McHale coming in every Friday, the best part of the show in 2007.
4th Caller – Jack and Adam interrupts and steamrolls through, unclear what this guy said, maybe he was playing along with the bit?
Adam is now bringing up the super long form calls they would take on Loveline during the classic Adam Carolla era.
Adam is now mocking a radio show he heard on KROQ and the “hey man that’s cold blooded” reply they had chambered as they rolled through the calls, the marginal talents who get to be on air but aren’t trusted as they could be exposed at any time if they talk too long.
Adam is now talking about his own sitcom after David brings up the new series ‘Mulaney’ and how Mike Lynch would kill the jokes on Adam’s writing staff and was vastly superior to the old pros like Eddie Gorodetsky.
Adam is now making a point about how the networks wouldn’t hire Lynch as he didn’t have the experience they required despite being smarter and funnier than anyone else on staff.
David is now telling Adam about how much he likes Eddie Gorodetsky and Adam agrees, he likes him, David tells them about Eddie trying to get him hired at ‘Big Bang Theory’ and how he turned it down.
Adam is now bringing up the network execs who can’t compose a joke but need their input to be heard so they can seem like they are doing some kind of work and deserve a paycheck even though they don’t.
