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 Jesse provides Katie with a Dead Dog Update, and Katie fills Jesse in on some important details about the female reproductive system (he’s still not interested), the hosts talk about Brianna Madia’s attempts to turn the tables on the losers and the haters who have been tormenting her online. At what point does anonymous online trolling get so bad that perpetrators deserve to be unmasked?

NOTE 1: On the first verision of this episode that went out to Primos only, I said that Brianna posted the names, locations, and *employers* of her haters, rather than the *jobs* of her haters. It has been updated as of 11 AM PT on April 1. Apologies for the error. It was, as always, Jesse’s fault. —KH

NOTE 2: The corrected file I uploaded (see Note 1) did not include our jaunty theme song. This too was Jesse’s fault. Apologies for the error. —KH
