  • Barry Manilow comes out as gay – Covino can’t believe that anyone is surprised by this. Spot legitimately never saw it coming. Rich thinks it’s pretty sad that he hid his relationship for so long. Rich wonders if older people who are gay feel any resentment or anger towards the younger generation who live in a different society where they could be open about their sexuality. Covino says it depends on the person.

  • Bikini selfies save lives – a girl kept posting pictures online of herself in bikinis and people kept commenting on a strange mole she had. After she further investigated, she found out that it was melanoma. Butt cheeks save lives!
  • Friend in need – a listener reaches out for advice on dating. He is single, 30 years old, and wonders if it’s wrong for not wanting to date someone over 35. He doesn’t care so much about the age, but because he wants a family one day he worries about the difficulties of having children and the risk of birth defects. C&R both understand where he’s coming from and don’t think there’s anything wrong with it but don’t think he should limit his options. This leads into a conversation about choosing a partner, being on the same page as your partner, and planning your life out when you do find someone who you see a future with.
  • Malin Akerman in studio – Malin Akerman came by to promote her role in her new film, The Ticket. The film is about a blind man who miraculously regains his vision and his whole life changes. Akerman also talks about her role on Billions and going from comedy to drama
  • Kim Kardashian’s Kimoji butt float – Kim Kardashian will be releasing a kimoji butt float with her new kimoji merchandise. Say what you want about the Kardashian’s but she is a genius businesswoman. Covino thinks calling her a genius is a stretch. Rich argues that she’s made millions of dollars from marketing herself – she’s doing something right whether anyone likes her or not.
