After listening to a segment of Adam’s audiobook, Adam goes on a jag about white guys in home security commercials. After listening to a couple ridiculous clips, the guys discuss the reality of racial equality, both on the screen and in the real world. Moving into the news, Alison opens with a story about Dr. Drew being hospitalized, and also brings up the abortion doctor who’s being charged with murder.
In studio today is comedian Patton Oswalt. Adam talks to him about his new book, Zombie Spaceship Wasteland, and the experience of recording the audio book. The guys also chat about making up the words to songs, and the benefits of having a flexible career.
Adam talks a bit more with Patton about his work on a cancelled sitcom, and trying to balance it while filming a movie. Adam recalls his own frustrations during the casting process, and the ‘funny’ execs who can’t pitch good jokes.
In the last part of the show, Alison returns to the news. The guys offer their thoughts on hangover cures and experiments on rats, and also talk about Octomom doing fetish porn. Wrapping things up, they talk about a ferret biting off somebody’s fingers, and the importance of organ donations.
