At the top of the podcast, Adam talks about grit and the best way to test for it. Adam then recalls his carpet cleaning days, and rants about leaving jobs unfinished. The guys also discuss how Adam’s kids’ personalities were in full effect even as infants, and take a fan phone call about 9/11 conspiracies. Joe Kenda then calls in and chats with Adam about his work as a homicide detective. The guys talk about murder statistics, and Adam asks Joe what the steps are to solving a crime, and how to avoid being a victim of violence. Later, Adam asks Joe about his most gruesome cases, and takes a couple more calls about stripper stage professions, waiters who don’t write down orders, and a Rich Man Poor Man submission.
Joel H. Cohen is in studio next, and the guys talk about the legacy of The Simpsons. They also talk about Joel’s attempts at running a marathon, and the best ways to distract your mind from your body. Later, the guys listen back on some of the their favorite Troy McClure moments from The Simpsons. In the last part of the show, Gina reads stories about hoaxes surrounding Hurricane Harvey, Justin Bieber’s nude photos, and the least & most valuable majors for undergrad studies.
