Journalists Katie Herzog and Jesse Singal scour the internet for its craziest, silliest, most sociopathic content, part of an obsessive and ill-conceived attempt to extract kernels of meaning and humanity from a landscape of endless raging dumpster fires.

After a very important Goat Update (tm), the hosts discuss the Canadian government’s heavyhanded response to the truckers, a very kinky new appointee to the Biden administration, and the San Francisco School Board recall. Premium subscribers can discuss the episode here.

Good interview with Siva Raj:

Ottawa police, who pledged the operation would push ahead "until residents and citizens have their city back," were still working to clear the capital's streets.
