Happy Thanksgiving! Jim ‘Pops’ Carolla is here, Adam talks to him about family Thanksgiving dinners from back in the day. Adam complains about the lack of food in his house, and talks with his dad about the reasons why. Jim also talks about his love for sports—much to Adam’s surprise.
Adam teases his dad about several sound drops they’ve played of both him, and Adam’s mother. Adam also explains how his mom never answered any questions he asked, and has a few questions of his own to ask Dad. Jim talks about Adam’s grandfather, and his experience growing up during The Great Depression.
After a quick break, Jim plays the trumpet and pulls out a sheet of paper with the entire family history lined. Adam realizes he doesn’t know much about his dad’s side of the family, and hears the origins of the Carolla family name. Adam also takes a couple listener calls, and gives everyone a classic recipe for Thanksgiving cranberry sauce.
