At the top of the show, Adam plays a clip from his recent Take A Knee interview with the legendary Alan Alda. The guys also talk about getting better as you get older, and Adam rants about teaching our kids the wrong skills. Tommy John founder Tom Patterson is in studio next, and Adam talks to him about the benefits of boxers over briefs, why you need to upgrade your underwear, and what new products are on the horizon. Before the break, Tom and the gang play a Father’s Day themed round of Tales from the Cheap.
