Dopey: On the Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction

Chris' friend from rehab in California calls in and talks about his last few days of using. It involved a car crash, a physical encounter with his wife, and consuming an entire bottle of Klonopin in hopes of killing himself.... all in bathrobe with no shoes on. Chris' friend is now in long term recovery and a well respected attorney. Dave's dad then returns to the show and critiques Dopey, although we learn that he checks the reviews more than we do. He also talks about how unfunny Dave was when he was high and how Chris misuses words. Lastly, Dave talks about the time he interviewed Senator John McCain while high.
