    I’m currently in the month of May 2003 and I’ve been reading a lot of comments about a particular prank caller called Miriam. Lots of aggression towards this girl, which is understandable. What I wanted to know is how do people know her name is Miriam? Does she come clean (or get busted) in a future episode? I was curious and wanted to know if anyone had an answer to this question.

    Thank you.

    She gets busted during the Interpol episode in June.

    I want to stick up and say Miriam is the best fake caller they ever had. Most bogus callers were people who just turned the show on and called in to ramble about nothing — and 80% of the time it was some guy claiming he boned his girlfriend’s mom, or a “my penis is too big to ride a bicycle” type announcement as Adam liked to call it. The no question, powering through a script, time-wasting bogus calls were just annoying. Miriam actually understood the show and responded like a normal caller, withholding information or getting emotional as appropriate. One of her finest moments was when she bickered with Adam about the difference between “having sex with three other people at the same time” and “a foursome,” and in the same call repeatedly referred to her grandfather as “my mother’s birth father” then refused to understand why that was a weird phrase requiring clarification when pressed on it. Those sorts of things are exactly the sort of handball-against-the-curtains stupidity that genuine callers engage in all the time, and Miriam is an acting genius for doing them in her prank persona when no one else ever did.

    I would love it if she got onto the Adam and Drew podcast as herself, to talk about her motivations, what she’s up to now, etc. I think she’s either an actress or a serial killer.

    I would love to hear from Miriam again. The girl who was supposed to give Adam a ride to the airport allegedly called into Kevin and Bean last week, so who knows. Maybe we will hear from her again some day

    I personally know of one girl who bogus-called in to LL at least three times that I know about. She used her real name of Nina once, and made up a different fake name for the other two. Each time, she had Adam and Drew convinced, but she never convinced me of course because I knew who she was.

    As to what Nina’s motivations were…this girl lied to so many people, so many times, about so many things that I doubt she even knows what the truth is any more. I mean, an occasional prank call to amuse your JO buddies I totally get. I never did that myself, but could see myself doing that if the circumstances were right. But, these habitual bogus callers that call in with seemingly real problems over and over again…I don’t get it. Probably never will.

    I guess my point is that there are probably way more Miriams and way more Ninas in LL’s history than any of us realize.

    Do you have approximate dates as to when she would have called? It’d be interesting to see how convincing she was.

    Well, on 12/6/2000 she called in. I left a comment there, stating…

    I think I found a bogus call here…
    “Nina”, the 14 F with the little girl voice, sounds exactly like “Shannon”, 16 F who called in on 2/15/2000, 1:28:03

    I heard her once again, but was driving my truck and didn’t make a note of the date and time. I should have.

    She REALLY played up the little girl voice for her 12/6/2000, but she didn’t have me fooled. She was almost as big a fan of the show as I am, so she knew full well that’s how a female illicits sympathy from the hosts.
