Adam is asking Kevin and Bean about their origin in radio seeing as how Kimmel got them to give Adam his start in radio.

Alison’s top story is on USPS announcing the end of Saturday letter delivery, Adam is asking if we really need mail on the weekend and now riffing on the UPS slogan, good stuff.
