Shad wrangles q's weekly pop culture panel — Stephen Marche of Esquire and journalist Rachel Giese — for a special Sounds of the Season edition of our weekly panel.

At issue today: 

  • Is this year's Pirelli calendar really changing its famously titillating formula? Or is this just the diversification of desire?
  • Mark Zuckerberg and his wife announce plans to give away most of his fortune. Does he deserve our "likes"?
  • Plus, we weigh in on the best and worst pop culture holiday traditions.
