04 Aug Owen Benjamin
As the show opens up, Adam talks about situational awareness and an intense walk with Phil yesterday evening. He then takes a fan phone call about reactions to his Congressional Testimony, which leads to a conversation about intellectual honesty. Adam also discusses Sonny’s interest in Fantasy Football, and answers a hypothetical question about Sonny’s potential porn-watching habits. Before the break, Adam takes one more call about sponsoring an inner-city child for a week, which reminds him of escaping his horrible childhood.
Owen Benjamin is in studio next, and Adam talks to him about a connection Owen didn’t realize he had with Jimmy’s Cousin Sal. Owen also talks about his family of teachers, and Adam tells a story about sending the kids back to school. The guys also discuss how people are afraid to exchange ideas, and then listen to some songs that have not aged well. Gina then begins the news with a story involving Jimmy Walker’s support of Donald Trump. They also run through the guest list for the upcoming season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and talk about sex dolls for pedophiles. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about ‘big leap guy’, Justin Bieber’s open letter about cancelling his latest tour, and Dukes of Hazard star Tom Wopat arrested for indecent assault and battery.
