    Returning in 2022: Conversations with People Who Hate Me

    The first rule of the internet: avoid the comments sections. On Conversations with People Who Hate Me, host Dylan Marron breaks that rule. He explores what happens when online feuders step out from behind the keyboard and get to know the human on the other side of the screen. Join Dylan as he connects people who have clashed online – from old friends to complete strangers — to explore why we believe what we believe, how we relate to each other on the internet, and just what a phone call can accomplish. While some of the comments and clapbacks quoted aren’t for the faint of heart, these conversations will be sure to fill it in this loving show that fosters unlikely connections in an age of increasing digital isolation. Whether Dylan is speaking with someone who wrote him a negative comment or is moderating a call between two strangers at odds, the results are often surprising, usually heartwarming, and always compelling.

    Conversations with People Who Hate Me is brought to you by the TED Audio Collective and will return in early 2022. Hit subscribe to get new episodes as they’re released.

Curious

Heard his interview on the Argument podcast and got curious about him, liking what I’m hearing so far..

Good moderator

Heard Dylan interviewed on The Argument podcast. That was enough to have me check out this podcast. Listening to all episodes from the beginning has me increasingly liking and recommending. Was worried topic range would be rather narrow, but it’s not the case. Great job Dylan!

Good show

Dylan is a very good person, I think that it’s good that he is making conversation with people that have sent him hateful messages.

Btw, in response to the haters:
He’s not giving a platform to these people, he’s empathizing with them and trying to figure out why they are doing what they’re doing. Because if you watched the first episode, this podcast is meant to be an experiment rather than pleasurable content
