We find he essentially created the original ‘Karen’ with one of his character voices. We also hear a hilarious clip of a past radio host blasting Adam, in which Adam explains the nature of the entire misunderstanding. Chris introduces some entertaining news of the day starting with the controversy surrounding Spanish soccer chief Luis Rubiales. Adam has some saucy opinions on the entire debacle. In entertainment, Jimmy Kimmel and a comedian crew of other late night hosts have teamed up on a podcast called, ‘Strike Force 5’ wherein all the proceeds go to out of work staff from the writer’s strike.

Vivek also has some singeing criticisms of President Biden. Next Adam welcomes writer and “radical moderate” Clay Travis to the show with a packed show of sports and politics analogies, and Clay believes Gavin Newsom will be the Democratic nominee in 2024. Adam hilariously relates Newsom’s leadership to a bad Mexican restaurant and both Adam and Clay agree that one can never apologize to the woke mob.

Adam welcomes consummate singer Darius Rucker to the show for a nuanced and entertaining look at his life and career as he’s about to release a new album. Darius grew up with a single mom and even though his father was mostly absent from his life, we learn of some audacious requests from him once Darius found success. We discover his initial love for music, how ‘Hootie & the Blowfish’ was created with college buddies, and the trajectory of being successful and talented as a black man not necessarily fitting into specific molds of where people expect others should be. He mentions being the butt of SNL jokes, and on the brighter side some epic rockstar parties. Next, Adam welcomes more music greats; Dicky Barrett and Pete Parada who created a new band together, ‘The Defiant’. They came together over their shared experiences of the abrupt ways in which they were both kicked out of their previous bands.
