The Adam Carolla Podcast
It's the Adam Carolla Show!
For some silly reason, the Bay Area no longer gets Adam Carolla's morning show. First it got banished to a terrible AM station that I couldn't even receive on part of my commute. Then, as of January 1, it's been pulled off the air in favor of a financial news show.
But...never fear, the show is podcasted every day, so with a few hours delay, I can hear a few segments here and there while I work. I know some people can't work while listening to people talk, but I've always been able to selectively tune things out - I used to go to sleep using sports radio as a white noise machine.
In any case, it used to be relatively stable -- that is, each segment got uploaded about two hours after it aired. Good times, right?
Well, for the last month or so, it seems like not a day goes by where I don't attempt to listen to a segment that is curiously short - only to see that a 'revised' segment shows up later. Or, it's completely mislabeled and it's from another day entirely. Or, it's from another SHOW entirely - as Frosty, Heidi & Frank (an LA show, as I understand it) appeared the other day.
I actually called the station this morning, thinking I'd maybe tell Adam what a big stoner he had uploading the podcast - turns out the phone screener IS that guy. And, he told me not to take it off of iTunes, but instead go to the website itself and listen there.
"iTunes sucks for some reason with this," he said. And he was extremely nice, very professional - but...he's also, at least today, wrong. Because it's the middle of the afternoon and both iTunes and their website have maybe a third of the segments from this morning's show.
As Mr. Carolla himself would say, I'm not complaining, I'm just explaining.
OK, I am complaining.
