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.

Jesse shares a scandalous episode from his past, the hosts discuss a New York Times op-ed by a college student that generated a deranged and telling response from The Twitter Powers That Be, and Katie tells Jesse about a remarkable #MeToo story she spend many months investigating (which we will post to the show notes when it is actually up).
