Adam opens by talking about his recent run of stand-up shows in Arizona. He was recently talking to Sarah Silverman about how easy it is to do 90-minutes of stand-up when he has a project behind him, but of course, the lightbulb blew out towards the end of one of his shows. The new bulb wasn't working, so Adam was forced to do the show totally by himself. Donny chimes in to confirm that everything went great. Adam also takes a call from Kevin Nealon to discuss his fundraiser for his friend Big Joe, and Adam rants about members of his family always bumming him out.
The top news story deals with a Jet Blue flight attendant who got very upset after a dispute about the overhead bins. He told everyone off, grabbed some beers, and leaped out of the emergency exit onto the inflatable raft. Adam says he's now ready for all the bullshit lawsuits that will no doubt follow from people who were on the plane, and exposes his theory that gay men may be too high strung to be airline attendants. Another news story deals with Fantasia Barrino's suicide attempt, and the last deals with parents who lost custody of their children after several domestic incidents, including naming their kid after Adolf Hitler.
Today's guest is Adam Curry, host of the podcast “No Agenda”. Adam immediately talks about his European style, and talks to him about being tall and hugging Shaquille O'Neal. Curry also has a series of 2-minute 'Appisodes' which give video demos of popular apps that you may want to download. He talks about working on his own podcast, and how he once famously offered Howard Stern $100 million to move his show away from satellite and onto the internet. They talk about the future of the medium, and Curry offers his theories on Mel Gibson's recent behavior.
Talking more about running a podcast, Curry suggests to Adam that he should ask listeners to donate money to the show. Adam defends his decision to go a more commercial route, and Teresa points out that everyone has been very supportive of the show's advertisers. The conversation moves to the television business, and Curry says the Kardashian fad really pisses him off.
Speaking of entertainment news, Teresa says that they are about to make a biopic of Peggy Lee. They talk about the casting of Reese Witherspoon, and Adam draws comparisons to Sex and the City, and how the gay population will help that movie make money. Another news story deals with a confrontation where someone wiped a dirty diaper on somebody's car, and it reminds Adam of having to wipe his own kids' asses, even though they're four. The last news story involves a West Virginia man caught in the act with a mannequin, which reminds Curry of briefly attending school in the state. Curry talks further of growing up in Europe, and Adam praises his own 'spidey-sense' for recognizing this European quality earlier.
