At the top of the show, Adam rants about how you can tell a city by the condition of their airport. He also goes on a tangent about bread bowls and complains about gum in the carpet. Alison then opens the news discussing the charging of the two Fullerton officers who beat and killed a homeless man earlier this year. Later, they talk about an online feud between Bobcat Goldthwait and Diablo Cody, and also do some tax talk regarding ‘The Buffet Rule.’ The last news story is about a fired Charlie’s Angel’s crewmember, and Alison reads a fan letter.
On the phone today is activist and anthropologist Jane Goodall. She talks with Adam about her upcoming one night only event that’s being screened in 500 movie theaters across the country. Adam also inquires about her early days of researching chimps in Africa, and finds out more about how the family units work in ape communities. The whole conversation reminds Adam of how inactive his own mother was in his life.
In the last part of the show, Alison reopens the news discussing both the Roast of Charlie Sheen, and also the premiere of the new Sheen-less Two and a Half Men. Adam shares his thoughts on both programs, and also talks about the first time he met Jeff Garland. Also in the news is a story about a very serious college prank, and the show wraps up as Adam recalls his favorite pranks from childhood.
