Adam Carolla

Adam Carolla is a radio and television personality, writer and actor. He hosted or co-hosted The Man Show, The Adam Carolla Show, Too Late with Adam Carolla, and Loveline. He now hosts The Adam Carolla Podcast, one of the internet's most popular. He also co-wrote and starred in the feature film The Hammer.

Carolla grew up in Southern California's San Fernando Valley. After dropping out of Community College, he worked for ten years as a laborer, carpenter and boxing trainer. Having given himself until he was 30 to find a job that used his mind and not his body, he got his first break at 29. Los Angeles radio powerhouse KROQ was having a promotional boxing match, and looking for trainers. Carolla headed to the station, where he was paired with Jimmy Kimmel, who became his colleague and friend.

Carolla talks with us about growing up in an apathetic family, how he found success, and balancing independence with career imperatives.

Lehrer talks with us about growing up in Kansas, his love of buses and trains, and the role of television journalism, and particularly public television journalism, in the 21st century. Super takes place on The Super Chief, one of the last American luxury trains. The Super Chief passed through Kansas, where Lehrer grew up; as a young man, Lehrer worked in a bus depot owned by the same company as the legendary train.
