At the top of the show, Adam rants about emails that change topic in the middle of the chain, and his lifestyle of having to have the same back and forths over and over again. He also complains about the Point Break screening debacle, and then gets in a better mood when Matt Atchity hosts a banking-themed round of the Rotten Tomatoes Game. Later, Adam chats with this week’s Lord of the Jungle winner. Before the break, Adam tells a story about catching his staff members discussing puppies instead of working.
David Steinberg is in studio next, and Adam asks him about interviewing incredible A-list talent for his podcast. They also talk about needing to harness the wisecracking gene, and where David got his comedic inspirations growing up. Other topics of conversation include breaking into the standup comedy scene, his many appearances on Johnny Carson, and how David maintains his fitness as he gets older. In the last part of the podcast, the guys talk about surprising moments in David’s interviews, and his experiences in the writer’s room for Curb Your Enthusiasm.
