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

After Katie tells Jesse about a very problematic alter, the hosts respond to an email from a young journalist who feels trapped by the would-be revolutionaries in her newsroom, discuss NPR's new policy regarding expressions of political beliefs, and talk about a memorable blowup in the world of TV writing. Plus: more personals.
