Jesse Singal
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.
Episode details

Jesse and Katie talk about Jesse's inclusion on a very special list of very special bigots, Katie's addition to the ever-growing list of people who got Doyle'd, and an annoyingly one-sided front-page New York Times piece about online censorship. Then they throw to an interview Jesse did with Jon Chait, an excellent writer and thinker who had a big impact on Jesse's own work over the years.
