Show Page

Adam has a funny Steve Miller themed intro and an oldie but goodie classic drop of Ty Pennington off of another radio show, not related to Adam Carolla in anyway, asking the hosts about their negative take on him as today’s #TopDrop.

Matt Atchity is in studio and Adam is now riffing on the booze laws in various states, the state run facilities and more common sales done in other states with more evolved alcohol laws.

Adam is giving his take on the state run planes, he asks if people can’t just simply get their buzz on, Adam says booze is a state sanctioned legal drug and cites the government hypocrisy and the bullshit smokescreen/theater we all act out to pretend it’s somehow of higher morality than any other drug sales.


Adam is now suggesting that anything we’ve done that we may have regretted is caused by booze, Alison agrees with that point after Adam dances around another aspect perhaps too long.

BB is bringing up the old-world regulations about cable providers that are still in effect and seem like they should be done away with.

Adam is setting up another anecdote about Sonny melting his heart, he mentions his 845am call into ‘Kevin and Bean’ and explains his restless actions before finally giving in after waking up too early.


Adam is now explaining how Molly is pushing his feet off of the bed, and how he was so out of ideas and sleep positions he tried one so radical he thought might finally work while truly knotting it wouldn’t, if it did work how would he first be discovering it now after so many years of life and sleep experience.

Adam is explaining how he needed to “not catch” after a complex motor and battery jump start metaphor, Adam says he needed a dart in his neck, Alison and Matt are chiming in and Adam is further describing his Cyanide Jr. capsule that only knocks you down for 5min.

Matt pitches “Sleepy Time Mangria” and BB adds to it nicely with an AM and PM recipe comment.


Adam is referencing Rohipnol and how he needs something different, something that only puts him out for 10-15min, not anything with an Indian guy standing over him with an IV.

Adam is telling people not to tweet him with chamomile soup and riffs about ether, Matt says Adam is looking for the Banana in the tailpipe.


Adam is taking it back to Sonny and his admirable actions, he’s mocking Natalia and her bathrobe, hilarious Thurston Howell III reference.

Adam is further mocking how bathrobes were synonymous with adults and not for kids, it was “Richie Rich Shit” and Adam is joking about getting jealous and ordering his daughter to get dressed, she told him it was “go to school in your pajamas day” and Adam is riffing about kids needing motivation to make them go to school.

Adam is sharing how he went to Sonny who was not participating in the day and once again said “Doesn’t Move the Needle” which impressed him, even though he knows Sonny wants him to bear hug him and likes him bringing it up on the podcast.


Alison has a truly insightful question about Sonny refusing to participate in these school functions and what Adam and Lynette think about it.

Adam is explaining why Natalia is into altering her shit, changing things up, guys are often not interested in that and wear clothes for a long time like non stinky Aceman.

Adam is talking about haircuts and his usual place, Adam has a hilarious “recently” riff about people using it the wrong way to cover up shame about not doing something.


Adam is explaining how he was compelled to tell the woman across from him dying her hair to give it up, he goes in depth on her rugged elderly face and clarifying he’s not telling her to stop shaving the stash, just don’t spend 3 hours of wasted energy.

Alison is sharing her attempts to go Fro and not dry her mechanically, Alison jokes that Daniel was affected performance wise, by her lackluster air dried hair, and he provided the leading comments to make her believe it was related to her non blow dried apparently shitty hair.


Q and Ace

Adam says apologizing effectively is another key thing to teach a young man, it’s not something that comes naturally, he compares it to changing a tire and how you can’t call AAA to apologize for you.

Adam is explaining how women feel and can empathize more than men, by and large and that’s why she’s such a better parent than he is, whoa!


Adam is bringing up his work with the dudes on ‘Catch a Contractor’ who can’t form half a sentence that sounds even little believable or heartfelt when faced with apologizing with the homeowners they ripped off.

Adam is now giving an example about how a super well-crafted apology can get you out of at least one major fuck up or scrape at school, work and with your significant other(s).

Alison has a solid follow up and Adam is further clarifying the next level of the fake apology, Alison says you can’t just be sorry because of the part where it’s negatively affecting you, Alison has a funny one liner and Matt has a great fake apology.


2nd Caller Cassius, he wants some advice for “up and coming podcasters” and Adam is now playing the part of Cassius and his Dad, Cassius scares Adam and he has a funny Mohamed question.

Adam is now riffing two separate scenarios, mocking his ambition to make money in this field let alone move from Canada to L.A.

Adam asks why he would move when it’s the kind of business where you can set up shop wherever you’re located, Cassius is telling Adam about prepping for his 1st open mic in a few months.


Adam tells him that if he’s averse to making a fool of himself on air that perhaps this business is not for him, Adam asks Cassius if he knows Rob Corddry and tells him to prepare to interview him.

Cassius reveals he’s had Bald Bryan and Joey Diaz on his podcast, BB confirms this and Alison helps Adam connect Joey to Joe Rogan and ‘Deathsquad’.
