Punks rule

A real chill dude talking about what the crazy right wingers are up to each week. Matt does an amazing job researching each subject to keep his followers informed and has on some great interviewees who are always experts on whatever the episode is about. Punks forever, homie 🤘

Great way to know your enemy

Matt warned us about Gamergate before anyone else caught on to the threat it posed. More recently, he's been the first to report on the major forces behind QAnon, the anti-vax movement, and a new group called Groypers. If you want to be one step ahead of the machinations of the far right, Doomed should be your go-to for info. Great job, Matt!
