Adam starts the show happily announcing the idiot security guard at E! studios was fired after his last experience where he couldn’t get past the front lobby on The Soup. Later, the guys argue over who the hotter Orbitz girl is.

 

Into the news with Alison Rosen, the top story involves the chaos happening in Egypt. More trouble in the Middle East? Adam’s not the least bit surprised. They also talk about the Florida woman who admitted to killing her two children, the lawsuit against Taco Bell, and the 3-year old son who called 911 to save his father. Adam images how his own kids would handle the call.

 

Today’s guest is Marc Maron, host of the What the Fuck Podcast. Marc talks about his recent performance in Portland, and the experience of trying to interview Gallagher for his show.  They also chat about other needy comedians, and how their own larger-than-life personalities have affected their romantic relationships.

 

Adam and Marc discuss the pros and cons of therapy, and whether or not it’s a good idea to have a female therapist if you have issues with women. Marc speaks openly about his painful divorce, and a more recent relationship blowup, and the guys try to analyze the connection between anger and intimacy.
