Lauren Lapkus & Chris Fenton




Part 1: Chris Fenton on China and Censorship, plus Adam Discusses Hawks vs. Doves  (ACS May 12)




Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam talks about the importance of reconsidering our relationship with China. The guys also take calls about running red lights, Adam’s relationship with Dr. Drew, and updates on Adam’s hand surgery. Chris Fenton then joins the line to talk about how things have changed between the US and China since he was last on the pod back in November. They go on to talk about the existence of evil, how China has maintained influence outside of their borders, and in particular how the film industry has been impacted by China’s censorship mandates.  

Lauren Lapkus is in studio next, and Adam talks with her about his love of the show ‘Crashing’. They also talk about Lauren’s improv background, as well as where she grew up, and how she pushed herself to follow her dreams of being a comedian. Lauren also sticks around for news stories about the death of Jerry Stiller, Guy Fieri raising $20million, and a viral story about a guy who wore a swastika mask out in public. As the show wraps up, the guys discuss the French dairy crisis, the potential end of ‘Black Mirror’, and the need for wholesome Americana.
