Episode 156: Hey Jude (Doyle) (Shupe, Shupe-ba-doop Remix)

Apologies for the poor audio quality. Due to ongoing Twitter drama, this week's episode has been recorded over a prison telephone.

This week, in broken telephones:

Jesse Singal deletes his Twitter account in a last-ditch attempt to avoid arrest after Twitter distorts his coverage of a whistleblower at a trans youth center into “Jesse sold the health records of thousands of transgender children to politicians” — a game of ideologically motivated broken telephone worthy of InfoWars.

Now in prison, he recounts his tales of Mormon underwear shortages and podcaster prison gangs over the prison phone, before finally quashing his beef with Jesus. Katie Herzog fills Jesse in on what he’s missed, including a hitpiece from Jude Doyle and triple agent Elisa Shupe. Finally, Katie tries to convince Jesse to hand over his Twitter password before it is lost forever once his execution date arrives.

Help Jesse buy one last pizza from the prison canteen:

They Will Never, Ever Stop Lying About Everything, But Don't Give Them The Attention They Want
A subset of Twitter’s most prolific and confident junior detectives is convinced that I shut down my Twitter account to somehow cover my tracks and/or admit defeat over this article that I published March 10. In my Substack post explaining my reasoning for taking a Twitter break…

That Might Have Been The Strangest Thing That Has Ever Happened To Me On Twitter
Friday was a busy day for me: I woke up in Oakland, recorded a podcast, took a call while cleaning up the tiny house my friend generously let me stay in, lost track of time during said call, rushed to BART convinced I would miss my plane, made the flight, hopped on the flight, landed at The Secret L.A. Airport I Hope People Don’t Find Out About Because …

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.
