Adam opens the show talking about going on Teresa Strasser’s radio show earlier this morning. Bald Bryan reads a radio memo that Adam swiped from the recording, and Lynch chimes in with a diagram their old boss Jack Silver drew about what makes a good character. Dawson also adds to the stories of their old radio show days, saying that he knew whatever Silver asked him to do, it was usually the opposite of what Adam wanted.
At the top of the news, the host of To Catch A Predator was caught cheating. Adam then jokes about what he would do if he sensed a sting was waiting for him on the other side of the door. The guys also talk about the sale of MySpace, and go on a tangent about Pepsi vs. Coke. Later, they discuss Charlie Sheen’s final goddess leaving him, and Adam predicts how his character will be killed off on Two and a Half Men. The last news story is about a Swedish preschool that’s eliminating gender pronouns, and Adam can’t understand what’s so wrong with boys being boys and girls being girls.
After a segment of The Lotzi Tapes, Adam welcomes comedian Tim Minchin to the show. The guys talk about Tim’s career as a musical comedian, and how much fun it is to use his musical skills for stupidity. Adam hears about his journey, and asks him if he has any desires to eventually go on Broadway. The guys then discuss their favorite musicals, and talk about how Tim grew his American audience thanks to YouTube.
One final news story before the show wraps is about apartment complexes testing dog stool samples so they know which owners are not cleaning up after their pets. Adam talks about his dog Molly’s pooping habits, and explains the importance of timing your shits before going into work.
