Meghan Daum is the author of ‘Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived In That House,’ a new memoir about real estate addiction and her struggles to find her dream home. She and Adam were first acquainted several years ago, after she wrote what Adam considers to be the nicest opinion piece anyone has ever written about him. Later she will read the column, as she brought it with her. Both Meghan and Adam are self-proclaimed Houseaholics. Adam tells a story about potentially trying to by Madonna’s old house, even though he knew the price was way out of his price range. He walked around the place, trying to figure out how to get $7 million and how he could stall to make sure he’d get the property. Eventually he realized just how wildly expensive it was, and truthfully he wasn’t even going to live there. The idea was just to get it, rent it, and get half the mortgage back. Meghan’s husband works for the LA Times, which she says is ‘bankrupt, but chugging along.’ Adam wants to know if it’s going to be like the Hollywood sign, or if as a society we’ll just let it die out. Meghan corrects Adam saying the Hollywood sign itself has never had a problem, but Adam clarifies and says they were gonna build houses around it, which people were not happy about. The situation reminds him of the Beachwood Canyon area, where people wanted to build a curb and fountain leading up to the corner store. It was a huge controversy, but Adam doesn’t understand why we give a shit about these things when nothing ever happens. After explaining his desire to constantly fix things, Adam tells the story of his grandfather’s grand piano, which at one point had roofing tar dripped on the side. The piano ended up at his sister’s house, and after still seeing the tar dried on the side, Adam took a hair dryer and butter knife and finally scraped it off. He points out that it’d been on there for 50 years, and it took him 4.5 minutes to fix. Meghan goes into more detail about her housing pet peeves, more specifically bad flooring. Adam invites her to his house to look at his floors, and Meghan jokes she’s already camped outside his front yard. Adam says that in general if you want something done correctly, you need to ask questions. He compares the situation to wanting a leather punching bag with a water bladder inside. Apparently they don’t make those, but Adam was able to make his own custom designed one by taking pieces from two separate bags. Before Meghan reads back the opinion piece she wrote on him, Adam says he never reads. He explains, ‘Not reading other people’s ideas has freed me up to create my own ideas […] I feel like their ideas pollute my ideas, I don’t wanna know what they’re thinking.’ Meghan reads the article, which bills Adam as an American genius. They also talk more about remodeling houses and designing them in a way that doesn’t make them look totally trendy for a brief moment. They go into a side conversation about politics and lying. Wrapping up the show, Adam reminds Meghan to come by the house and see the floors, and Meghan is understandably thrilled to check them out. Be sure to purchase her new book, ‘Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived In That House.’ Audio Board- Katie Levine Build and Edit- Logan Moy Search computer- Chris Laxamana Produced- Donny Misraje
