It's time for the boys' annual Christmas episode! Listen in as they flirt with disaster and break down one of the most iconic and currently problematic Holiday tunes out there. Is "Baby, it's Cold Outside" offensive?

Mike channels his inner Grinch and argues that the song is a bit "rapey." Ryan tries to sleigh his opposition by pointing out some forgotten context. But which way will our judge, Nick, actually side?

Points of discussion include: date rape, Neptune's Daughter, Frank Loesser, Lady Gaga, SNL, fake outrage, predators, feminism, the test of time, and Osama Bin Laden.

Does Nick think Sean Connery beating up women is cool? Does Ryan like the movie Elf? Is Mike a terrorist?

Listen to the fireplace roar in: Is "Baby, it's Cold Outside" Offensive?
