Show Summary

Adam opens the show discussing a random thought he had in the shower. Phil Rosenthal is also in studio, and the guys respond to Periscope questions about the making of Road Hard. Adam then compliments Phil on his travel show, and how he wishes he could enjoy food in the same way Phil does. Phil talks about his days of saving up to go out for a great meal on his birthday every year, and his friendly competition with Anthony Bourdain. Adam then takes fan phone calls about Yoko Ono having gumption, updates on the Road Hard swag, and traveling around the world for business. Adam also complains about a McDonald’s commercial he recently saw, and talks to another caller about driving an electric car.

Gina starts the news today with a story about the World Series pitcher who didn’t realize his father had died before the game started. They also discuss an update on the school officer who used excessive force on a student, a police department that equips their officers with nunchucks, and a new system to determine your ‘fitness age’. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about an unmanned runaway blimp, and a guy who makes millions retrieving golf balls from lakes.
