Adam thanks everyone for picking up a copy of his book, but don't stop now! Adam wants to get on the NY Times Bestseller List, and as he points out, 'it does involve selling books.' Adam also welcomes Shira Lazar to the show to fill in for the news, who talks about the smartest cities in the country, and a guy who used Jeffrey Dahmer to get out of jury duty. Adam also goes on a rant about his controversial comment regarding homosexuality and raising children.
Rob Schneider comes on the line, disagreeing with some of Adam's sentiments about homosexuality. They also have some serious political talk about financial regulations and the psychology of the American people. Adam also asks Rob about his spirituality, and two talk about the interconnectedness of humanity.
Ed Asner and his son Matt join the show. Adam talks with the legendary actor about his work on The Mary Tyler Moore show, and his exciting new renaissance in films like Pixar's Up. The guys also talk about raising twins (his son Matt has a twin sister), and also Ed's early career leaving NY and moving to LA. Matt talks about his new documentary about Jewish cantors and post-war life in Poland. Things also take a more serious turn as Ed offers his thoughts on the Holocaust, and Western reactions during that time period.
Heading into the final part of the news, Shira reads off The Top 10 Most Inappropriate Places to Flirt. After some commentary about meeting people at work, Adam talks about his experience working with Joe Rogan. They talk about the sad state of people attracted to other people's misery, and Adam brings up a number of disturbing viral videos. Wrapping up the show, Adam talks to Ed about his thoughts on 9/11 and other potential American conspiracies.
