Adam opens by discussing a recent walk with his dog and daughter. He has some interesting questions about dog poop etiquette, and talks about the hot Indian chick who didn't seem to follow it. He also talks about driving his daughter up the street without her seat belt on, and how she immediately ratted him out to his wife.
Bald Bryan is covering the News, and since Comic-Con was this past weekend, all the stories revolve around the convention. Adam is reminded of a classic 70s song he talked about during an interview, and says that he doesn't quite get the obsession with comics, even though he has an obsession with cars. 'Everyone needs a hobby,' he says, but at least his is tangible. One news story from Comic-Con revolves around a guy who was stabbed in the face with a pen for trying to hold a seat, and another story deals with casting confirmations for the new Avengers movie. Adam also takes time to complain about asshole parking lot attendants and pawn shops.
As Tom Arnold is brought into the studio, Adam thanks all the listeners for their generous pre-orders of his book even though it isn't released until November. Tom takes a seat and he and Adam joke about how Tom is usually a good bet for the 'death pool' since he's struggled with many personal issues in the past. Tom talks about the time that Roseanne Barr sang the national anthem (exactly 20 years ago), and how he ended up in jail after assaulting a paparazzi in the airport who tried to assault her once they landed.
And speaking of prison, Tom was recently on TMZ speaking about Lindsay Lohan's jail sentence. He speaks from experience and says that prison is a bad place to detox. Tom also talks about referring various celebrity friends to Dr. Drew, and he tells a few stories about failed attempts to helping people get sober. Adam talks more with Tom about his struggles with addictions, and says that like a lot of people, Tom has a metronome built inside his brain. He asks Tom how he slows it down, and Tom confesses that his strength comes from his relationship with his girlfriend. They also spend some time talking about Tom's relationship with Roseanne, and how technology has made it possible for people to anonymously say horrible things about people constantly.
Wrapping up the show, Adam takes a few calls for rounds of What Can't Adam Complain About. Topics vary from saving the animals, to sign language interpreters.
