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.

    Jesse's Leaving The Podcast Right This Instant, Puberty Blockers, And A Very Crazy, Very Expensive Campus Controversy

    Jesse's Leaving The Podcast Right This Instant, Puberty Blockers, And A Very Crazy, Very Expensive Campus Controversy

    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.

    BONUS EPISODE: JFC I Guess We Are Talking More About Graham Linehan Innit

    BONUS EPISODE: JFC I Guess We Are Talking More About Graham Linehan Innit

    Jesse and Katie noticed a big reaction to a patrons-only episode they did that discussed Graham Linehan, so they decided to make that episode free for all, bracked by some new stuff before and after.


    Please consider ordering Jesse's book, which is out now: https://www.amazon.com/Quick-Fix-Psychology-Cant-Social/dp/0374239800/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=


    Original Linehan episode notes and links:


    HOO BOY. Jesse and Katie discuss their critique of Graham Linehan's approach to gender-critical online activism, but then talk about a deeply disturbing story of Reddit censorship in which his newsletter played an undeniably important journalistic role. (Two quick corrections/clarifications: Mumsnet is a lot more than just the message board that has been accused of hosting transphobia -- AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD ARE WE NOT OPINING ON THE FAIRNESS OF THAT CHARGE -- and we should have made it clear that the controversy only has to do with that one facet of the site. Also, our own subreddit did, in fact, briefly go private as part of the broader action to try to force action on Reddit's part. Solidarity!)

    We Hope Buying Jesse's Book Provides An Opportunity For Introspection And Growth

    After Katie opens up about a gruesome injury and Jesse tells a story about a listener's travails at an upscale New York City climbing gym, the hosts discuss Jesse's book, which is out on Tuesday. Specifically, they dig into Comprehensive Soldier Fitness, an anti-PTSD Army program that doesn't work, and the implicit association test, an anti-racism test that... doesn't work. Also, it turns out both hosts are kinda scared of bridges, which feels like something they should dig into at some later date.

    There's No Accountability To Accountability Lists These Days (feat. Jonathan Chait)

    There's No Accountability To Accountability Lists These Days (feat. Jonathan Chait)

    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.


    Please consider preordering Jesse's book, The Quick Fix: Why Fad Psychology Can't Cure Our Social Ills, which is out April 6.

    Yes We Have Receipts And No You Cannot See Them

    Yes We Have Receipts And No You Cannot See Them

    After reflecting on the podcast turning one whole year old later this week, Jesse and Katie talk about the massive online uproar over his (and others') continuing presence on Substack, Katie's impressive Brianna-Wu-related fundraising, and the underappreciated connection between GamerGate and 4chan. Then the hosts discuss media coverage of the awful massage-parlor shootings in Atlanta, and particularly the rush to slot them into an oversimplified race narrative.
