Teresa jumps right into the news, discussing P. Diddy’s recent interview with Martin Bashir. Bashir raises interesting questions about Diddy’s parental abilities, and Diddy tries to defend his choices. He brings up his son’s Super Sweet 16 birthday party, which Adam happened to catch on MTV.
Another news story deals with the Kardashian’s, to which Adam says, ‘[it’s like] everything that’s wrong with our country, condensed in a single show.’ He goes on to say, ‘It’s about selling their sexuality, and Mom is there every step of the way.’ And speaking of sexuality, the final news segment deals with Britain’s oldest swingers. This prompts a rant from Adam about the HBO show Real Sex, and how they only showcase ugly people.
Adam and Teresa take a listener call, who asks them about their last day on air at KSLX. Adam describes the mood of the show as being a bit somber, but mostly reflecting and celebrating all of their accomplishments. He goes on to describe program director Jack Silver, and even plays an old bit that Silver recorded specifically to play during their final minutes on the air. Adam says he’s a good guy, but his comedic sensibilities were very different, and ‘tonally, he was tone deaf to the moment.’
Natasha Leggero comes on, and talks about her Italian parents’ obsession with the mob, and also their attempts at learning how to use Facebook. Teresa says she’d rather have her parents embarrass her live instead of on the internet. They also go into the history of how Natasha ended up getting the Last Comic Standing gig, and Natasha says to be a comedian, you need to have been lacking in attention from at least one parent.
She also talks about being in Africa with a bunch of Comedians to raise awareness for Malaria. Natasha was surprised to learn that 90% of the world still uses squat toilets, and admits that she had serious trouble getting around in a third world country. Adam isn’t quite sure what the nets and the rice are doing to help, and suggests that we take a Darwinian standpoint and just let the problems die off. He later jokes we can turn the whole country into a water park.
After a round of Blah Blah Blog: BP Disaster Edition, Teresa jumps into the final news stories. First a story of Ryan Seacrest’s stalker being sentenced to prison, then the story of a cross-dressing black man offering candy to kids, but saying he’s being discriminated against because of his gender confusion. Teresa reveals the Top 10 Most Watched On-Demand movies, and the podcast ends with Adam and Natasha discussing the comedic sensibilities of Chelsea Handler.
