Adam opens the show with a follow up to the abundance of zit cream he now has and doesn’t want. He also complains about having to get up early this morning and drive across town while everyone else enjoyed President’s Day. Adam then rants about deep-dish pizza and talks with his buddy Ray Oldhafer about this week’s home improvement tip. After that, Deaf Frat Guy calls in for a round of JV or All Balls.
After the break, Adam takes a call from Julie Samuels. Julie informs the group about the latest updates in the battle against patent trolls, and explains why they are getting in the way of important advancements and growing businesses. Alison then opens the news discussing the Ethiopian man who hijacked a plane to steer it toward asylum. They also discuss Zimmerman’s PTSD, Ellen Page coming out of the closet, and the latest efforts to curb runaway productions in Los Angeles. As the show wraps up, Alison talks about the phenomenon of Flappy Bird.
