Adam is sharing ow he would triangulate a movie’s star score based on 3 different sources, BB now has a message for the critical fans and Adam says we’re playing a game and he invented it bitches.

Matt recommends a new film about the catholic church sexual abuse scandal, Adam is now ranting about why they gave him a 2 ½ stars, he talks about why they wouldn’t choose to round up instead of rounding down.


Adam talks about round downers vs. round uppers, Adam is arguing for rounding up and Matt has a fine point about trying to encourage viewers during awful timeslots.

BB talks about how Adam mentions that he drives his wife’s car all of the time, Adam doesn’t want to see BB become successful, he tries to keep BB’s self-esteem low for tactical reasons he explains.

BB brags about never borrowing money nor asking parking in a space but the one designated for him, laughs for BB much…


Adam and BB have some further fun over this topic and Adam mentions how BB has stepped up his improv game since taking classes recently, Adam says he’s been thinking about it all year and stepped up his game actively before ever entering the improv dojo.

Adam is making a point about quantifying relationships that end after 7years, he thinks the steeping process is nearly 13 months before the eventual split.

Matt asks if Adam thinks that improv chops help with interviewing other people, Adam says the most precise thing you can do is an interview and he talks about the rough creaky wheel interviews of early Loveline where he was often playing handball against the drapes with no support from Drew or the staff.

Adam brings up Manoj, BB has a killer drop choice and Adam talks about doing the interview without any notes.


Adam is saying that he would tell everyone to take an improv class just for life, Adam is sharing the details of his dance competition with his daughter, Olga was the judge and he pays her, cute anecdote about being a good father.

Adam says that improv is invisible and you never get a trophy, Adam is recalling the first 2 ½ months with Riki Rachtman still co-hosting and Adam in the “3rd chair” and how the first interview after with Mike Muir of ‘Suicidal Tendencies’ and how difficult it felt for him to try and elicit an interview, he’s being unfair to himself, this is the ‘All I wanted was a Pepsi’ guy.

Classic Loveline #82 Mike Muir – 01/22/1996


Adam is comparing latter day DAG episodes and is re-creating the interview with Mike and commenting on how stilted and what a disaster it was to get out of the gate with that interview.

Adam says I will find it, I did already.

Adam thinks Riki Rachtman pulled this guy aside and had him tank the interview, which is quite possible as they are friends.

Adam says I will find the episode and they will play it, it’s there. They’re looking at a picture of Mike Muir and Adam brings up Elliott Gould, Adam teases an interview between Matt and Elliott.

Adam says Hillary is liver, not melon or a take it or leave it fruit option.


Adam is going over Tai’s origins and how he got mentors which led to his success, Adam knows the feelings of the “have nots” the emotional version of that, get a job, fight to keep it and wait to die, he quotes his mom and her fears of losing her welfare if she sought employment.

Adam doesn’t know why mentorships are never really discusses in today’s world, Tai talks about how to change and grow from the people around you, whether it’s financial or physical, Tai is making a lot of sense.

Adam can’t recall what podcast he was talking about Ray on, Adam talks about how Ray chose to hang around with losers, and Gary says Ray was last on in August. I think Adam is trying to recall the most recent Reasonable Doubt episode where this same thing came up.


Tai is further telling them about coming up and they are talking about the differences between the very wealthy and the poor when it comes to fashion or accoutrements, even PC approved “environmentally friendly” cars that are driven by people of all ranges of income levels.


Tai is talking about some key advice he got about making a million dollars to earn the real respect in life, not the fake stuff reserved for people living on couches who refuse to “sell out.”

Adam is in agreement with the clip and he rants about playing kids music everywhere, stop with the Katy Perry robot music.

Adam is now jumping in and fleshing out the human behaviors around this and how media fits things into molds and will run with certain topics in momentum.
