Adam opens the show with David Wild in studio, and the guys talk about the concept of Jew-jitsu. Adam then rants about homeless encampments off the side of the freeway, and the return of Sid and Marty Krofft. The guys quickly take a Jew-jitsu call, and swap out David Wild for filmmaker Gotham Chopra. Adam asks Gotham about the link between sports and religion, and Gotham also talks about following Kobe Bryant for a year and a half. Later they discuss the life of Gotham’s father, Deepak.
Gina begins the news talking about Donald Trump leaving his businesses behind so that he can focus on being President. They also talk about Barron Trump’s autism video, Anthony Michael Hall being charged with felony battery, and lottery winners who insist they’ll stay at work. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about a stolen bucket of gold flakes, an ice aquarium in Japan that featured dead, frozen fish, and this year’s Christmas craze: ‘Hatchimals’.
