    Episode 32: Trash

    In the summer of 2017 journalist Katie Herzog wrote a piece that was widely criticized. Ultimately she found herself at the bottom of a social media pile-on. 3,000 miles east of Katie, a woman named Robyn Kanner joined that pile-on tweeting “ur just trash.” In this episode, taped live in front an audience, Katie and Robyn meet onstage for the first time to discuss what happened between them, and the unlikely twist that brought them closer than they would have ever guessed.

Customer Reviews

AlanahHelene ,

Is this racist?

I love this podcast, it tackles many important topics and conversations that need to be had - typically the conversations are centred around issues that we as loving humans who want to heal the world (or see it burn, wherever you are on the piece of string is irrelevant) need to hear and learn from. Unfortunately, the episode ‘is this racist?’ felt really self serving to me, from Lauren’s point of view. I understand that everyone can feel insecure and being worried that someone hates you is certainly not nice, but the subject matter was centred around her telling someone how bad they made her feel, and then asking why they felt bad (as if they shouldn’t?) when they showed regret for their words... it didn’t feel like a constructive or informative conversation for the masses, which I feel this podcast usually is - it felt more like a conversation where Lauren got to make herself feel better by making someone else feel bad. Again, I love this podcast which is why I’ve rated five stars, but I felt really disheartened to hear this particular conversation (and no, I don’t hate Lauren or you Dylan!)
