Adam Carolla Talks Podcasting, Scottsdale, SB 1070, and Things No Man Should Ever Do

It's hard to get Adam Carolla to shut up -- the comedian/raconteur/talk show host is a natural-born talker. 

He spent more than a decade cracking jokes and giving our relationship advice on radio's legendary Loveline, he co-hosted Comedy Central's The Man Show with Jimmy Kimmel, and he ranted and raved in hilarious fashion on his own morning radio show, which was canceled in 2009.

These days, Carolla's dispatching his comedy and caustic opinions via his namesake daily podcast that has millions of weekly listeners. And he's sure to gab up a storm tomorrow night at the Orpheum Theatre when he visits the venue for a night of stand-up comedy and hilarious stories.

Do you feel like you have more freedom then you did on terrestrial radio?

 The freedom part of the podcast is the scheduling part, the flexibility of it, the movement of it. That's really the part that's interesting about it.

Plus you can curse like a longshoreman?
Yeah, it's funny, people tap into that part of it, which is cool, but really the part of podcasting that turned out to be so advantages is the how flexible it is.
