I used to be a huge Adam fan but then he got all political and it turned me off a bit. Plus his notching about the plight of her rich white man can be tiring. And I wasn't thrilled with the Alison firing.
Love FCOL, and Stefanie is a great anchor to Lynnette's ditziness. I do wonder how the hell she puts up with Adam, he sounds like an exhausting dude to live with.

I love Lynnette! She seems so down to earth. They are multi millionaires but she still rocks Target jewelry. Cracks me up. I love the behind the scene perspective on Hollywood. " We went to a Christmas party this weekend…at whats his names house…Kevin Costner" Ha ha…shes awesome.

Having been a long-time listener of ACS and Alison's show, I was bummed to hear how her firing played out. Earlier this year, you could tell she wanted to say a lot more, to explain and defend herself but the Thursday gang helped her move on because no matter what the circumstances, Adam is never wrong. I do think it's hilarious he banned the Bo-Bo boys from doing her show probably thinking it would tank but instead she found a new group of people.
I ended up stopping ACS after briefly meeting Adam at a book signing and realizing he's probably never actually read a book and yet here I am reading his. And yes he was every bit the put off asshole you would expect him to be.
I am still a ARIYNBF listener I like the dynamic between Jenna Kim Jones, Allan Moss and Greg Heller, but I also like Alison's Monday interviews when she gets the person to really open up and talk about something deep. Two very different shows. Plus, I know she doesn't read a lot about herself online for her own sanity, I like that she answered a question I tweeted to her (not on her podcast but replied).

I don't listen to Adam much anymore, as it seems repetitive, but I love FCOL. Lynette and Stephanie are a great combination.

yes! When I noticed there was a Podcast thread.. I was hoping someone would add something about FCOL.. ! But not because I want them to GOMI.. they are the best. Love listening to their show.
I listen to a few of Adam's podcasts..but only to put me to sleep.

Fateful FCOL listener here, which says something about the show because I am turned off by their attitude toward many parenting topics. (No doubt some of it is for dramatic effect….) As a duo they are fun and often make me laugh.
Lynette is a saint for managing to stay with Adam, it must be absolutely exhausting to live with him.
Yep, I do remember when Stephanie mentioned GOMI (Hi Stephanie!).
I used to listen to Adam almost daily. I loved Teresa and liked Allison. Something has changed in Adam (on the ACS) and not for the better. He it turning into one of those cranky old men that complains about the same thing over and over again. Its one thing to be cranky/controversial when you are well-informed and are willing to take on all comers for great debates/conversation. Its another to rely on the low-hanging fruit time and time again and leave no room for anyone's opinion but your own.
I do like Adam and Drew together most of the time and Adam and Ray together on the Ace on the House podcast used to crack me up. I think Carolla digital could use more Ray!
I am trying to get into Resume. I think it could be interesting if Chris would dig deeper during the interviews.

It seems insane after all I've heard of what it's like to live with Adam, but I can't help it, I'm jealous of Lynette. I think he's hot and is entertaining. Been listening to the show for years and seem to have no end of patience for his rants, even though I've heard some over and over again and disagree with some. I would probably tune out on a lot of it if I was Lynette, but in a way he doesn't even seem to mind if people tune out a little, because he does it to everyone else. I like his ambition (like Lynette), and being super rich, living in an amazing house, having someone who can fix anything and deal with your car, leases you Teslas, getting to go on trips all the time and have a great nanny, night nurses when your kids are babies, and go to amazing celebrity parties and hang out with Jimmy Kimmel? I could put up with some rants and suck it up and rinse out my coffee cup and put my keys in the same place every day for that! Plus, he seems to stay out of Lynette's business to a large degree, and she hangs out with friends and goes on girl trips, goes to see Bruce Springsteen all the time, and I'm sure doesn't complain if she buys expensive clothes and has blow outs every day. I feel like I could handle that, though dealing with Natalia sounds like the hardest part.

I used to listen to ACS every day (long commute), but I stopped listening when Trayvon Martin was killed. I had zero interest in hearing Carolla's opinion about the topic. I haven't gotten back in the habit of listening to him. During a long drive about three months ago, my husband and I listened to an episode, and I found it just as funny as it was before, but I've moved on and discovered new podcasts in that time and those are more compelling to me.
I listen to FCOL every week. I'm not a mom, but I still find them very entertaining. I think on their own, Lynette and Stephanie would be too much, but I like them together. When one of them takes a week off and the other hosts the show, I tend to find those episodes kinda boring, no matter the guest. I just think they play really well of each other.

Another GOMI shout out today!

Hooooomygod! She mentioned my comment about her voice being too perfect. Totally dying! I'm glad she gets the overall feeling that we love their show. I was thinking she must be reading this, because she made a few comments in the last episode that sounded like responses to what we were talking about, but she didn't say for sure.
I was so happy she brought up Susan Pinsky's freak-out over Lynette being skeptical of her psychic. (I've listened to Susan's show quite a bit, and have gone back and forth between belief and skepticism…I've heard some things on that show that seem like they could NOT be fake, but other times it's stupid.) I was so curious about how that would play out for Susan and Lynette, so that was great she asked her! Thank you! Very anti-climactic response. Apparently Susan just got over it, which was surprising because at the time on FB Susan was posting about "crying all day." I guess she really is crazy.
Well, Stefanie, since you're reading this, you and Lynette are a great combo. Thanks for responding to us. You should register here and snark with us! I think you and Lynette need to talk about some other specific bloggers we talk about here, especially IMO Gluten Free Girl.

Stephanie mentioned me on FCOL…I feel so special

I LOVE FCOL. Stephanie and Lynette are the exact kind of "real" moms I need to hear from. I am a mom in west los angeles, and i just CANNOT with these sanctimommies who can do no wrong. I've gone on to read stephanie's books which are hilarious. Can someone tell me what the deal with the opening song is? That is the only part that annoys me (+ the ads which i just skip over).
