That Episode of FCOL has become quite the controversial topic, IMO Adam like everyone deserves to be able to really cut loose, once a decade is too much for the guy who pays everyone and entertains everyone?

Adam is talking about hourly wages and how communication is key, Adam is asking about Gary and their trip back to the airport.
Adam is talking about the “Uber Mom” driver who picked him up, Adam asked her about right on red in Arizona, the woman told him they’re legal unless a sign is displayed prohibiting it.
Adam and Gina have a funny improv back and forth, it’s nice hearing them on air without anyone else, Gina gets more room to play back up fiddle, and she’s doing well.
Gina is quoting the woman, she was in the car and Adam is going over the events again, doing one more lap, Adam is dumfounded by how difficult it seems to be for other people to communicate to other adult humans.
Adam talks about the radio tours he does when the shows didn’t get a chance to see his movies beforehand due to a screener mix-up.
Adam explains how Steve Jobs was the ultimate example of someone who experiences these scenarios and tries to remedy them, by any means necessary.

BB talks about the less than a dozen or so set pieces.
Gina asks about the amount of “Bollywood Dancing” and cites the indolent of director Danny Boyle, BB is now bringing up the melodramatic element to the conversations that need to be had before each of Steve’s legendary presentations.
BB says this movie won’t be remembered that fondly, Adam says that Fassbender was too chiseled and built, he looked like he was working out and going low carb.
BB says the Ahston Kutcher version is not good but Ashton did a similar job of looking like Steve and perhaps a better job with the posture and mannerisms, Adam is commenting on the lack of discussion about Steve’s looks in reality and how it ended up distracting him in the movie.
