495 - Tube 11: Shop Talk with Billy Baumann and OK Pants

Bang the holiday drum because the holidays have come to Shop Talk as we open up the 11th Tube Of Christmas. The boys stay well off course today to keep everyone's spirits bright after a long week of settling in for the long lines and crowded parking lots that loom ahead. Billy almost gets fired from Delicious, Mark's plane loses a passenger, and all the while our personal Tiny Tim, OK Pants is trying to keep things positive. The iPad Pro receives a final AID verdict and we all uncover what Instagram has been hiding with Al Gore's Rhythm and why. Shop Talk ends on a high note as Mark, Billy, and Aaron square off in a heated debate over the superheroes and supervillains that have impacted us the most.
