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

After Jesse makes a shocking announcement (he's leaving the podcast in pursuit of greater glory), the hosts talk about a spate of bad GOP bills seeking to ban puberty blockers and hormones for minors and how difficult it is to communicate accurate, honest information to the public about this subject. Then they discuss a story Jesse wrote for Reason about a particularly crazy campus blowup in which a bunch of innocent white people were traumatized (physically) by disagreement.
