Show Summary

Adam opens the show with Kai Ryssdal in studio, and Adam talks about how much he loves listening to Marketplace.

Adam is then shocked to hear what Kai’s schedule is like, and Kai shares his thoughts on the upcoming election. Later, Adam takes a fan phone call about a creepy Loveline call from back in the day, and he chats with the staff about whether or not he has control issues. Next up, Gina reads news stories about the relationship between income and drinking, the Gisele Bundchen burka controversy, and a drunk driving stop gone wrong. As the show wraps up, the guys discuss statistics about Millennials, and why men who smoke pot are more likely to suffer mental illnesses than women.
