Show Summary

Adam opens the show with Sonny in studio, who is extremely concerned about missing football games this weekend. Bald Bryan then talks about beating Sonny in the staff’s fantasy football league, and Adam chats more about the benefits of cold showers. Adam also discusses why he thinks the gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ will grow even further, and rants about movies that get lower ratings because of politically charged topics. Before the break, Bald Bryan reviews ‘La La Land’ for this week’s Baldywood, and Adam takes a quick call about the consequences of growing up without a dad.

Tim Ferriss is in studio next, and Adam talks with him about being a ‘human guinea pig’ and finding new ways to improve your life. Tim gives Adam some advice on taking ice baths, and exposing yourself to ‘voluntary suffering’. The guys also discuss the intensity of retired Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, how to get a better night’s sleep, and trying to get the people you love to change their behavior. As the show wraps up, the guys watch the latest Baldwin/Trump clip from Saturday Night Live, discuss the protest of an event featuring Milo Yiannopoulos and Martin Shkreli, and talk about the development of technologies to determine if you’re getting sick.
