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 talks about his time in Cuba (where he was radicalized against America), and then the cohosts discuss a very naughty Tory politician, whether J.K. Rowling caused Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine, and a bizarre story involving a liberal arts college and what can only be deranged as a dad-led sex cult.
