Adam reflects on his performance in New York, and defends his Guinness World Record for Most Downloaded Podcast, despite the comment that Ira Glass made during the show. Adam also talks about his experience at the dentist today, and then Alison jumps into the news. The opening story is about the conviction of Blagojevich, and the guys discuss how none of the crimes being committed by politicians are very thought out.
Later, Adam hears a story about the LAUSD changing their policy on homework, and goes on a rant about how the cultures that don’t focus on education need to start changing their priorities instead of making excuses and bringing everyone else down. The guys also talk about a 95-year-old woman who was forced to remove her adult diaper at the airport, and Adam can’t believe how much money is wasted because we’re unrealistic when we profile. The guys then listen to another snippet of The Lotzi Tapes.
Gary Cole joins the podcast next, and talks about why he enjoys performing theater so much. Adam also talks to him about how his career is going, and recalls how silly it is that successful actors still have to audition for parts. The guys then play a few rounds of Made Up Movie, where callers give the guys fake movie titles, and they fill in the rest.
In the last section of the show, Alison reads a series of news stories involving animals. Jennifer Anniston got a tattoo of her old dog’s name, and the World’s Ugliest Dog has officially been crowned. There’s also a story about activists who believe pets should no longer be allowed to be bought or sold, and Adam talks about the love and loss of his first dog. As the show wraps up, the guys discuss Florence Henderson’s revelation that she had crabs in the 60s, and Adam tells a personal story about sharing a bed with a buddy who had crabs as well.
