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 the hosts discuss a controversy involving a less-than-affirming puppet show, Greg Lukianoff joins them to talk about the anti-critical-race-theory laws being proposed all over the country, some of which he says represent the greatest threat to academic freedom he's seen in his 20-year career.
