About this Episode

It would appear that everyone in the Bay Area is in a perpetual state of auditioning for their very own reality television show. As such, your hosts survey the field of pizza phoners, calamitously loud typists, and skeevy middle fingerers. But it's not all bad news for Northern California – the Giants are second best in the major leagues, though Ryan laments that the regular season has too many games and too few power plays on ice. All this plus: Google acquires Webpass for its Fiber operations, 1Password at 10 years, rumors of the upcoming iPhone ditching the headphone jack, watching television at 1.6x, and once again, dogs on IG.
