Nancy Jo Salas
I’m sorry, I’ve been online dating for over 10 years. Your experience or lack there of is what you make of it. She needs to own what she’s done and written about, and is frankly butt hurt about someone asking her hard questions. She’s clearly a justice warrior who isn’t owning the fact that she’s in her 50s and hooking up with 20 and 30 somethings. Also, no one cares your a journalist or educated… as the news has recently showed us all this means is you can regurgitate a narrative.
Regarding Nancy Jo
She didn’t not seem well articulated at all. And unable to see that she exploited herself for her own book. And instead of being accountable, she chose to blame patriarchy and culture. Absolutely ridiculous. Side note: I’m betting if she was neither Jewish or Italian she would not be published at all. And not a “documentary filmmaker.” Also I thought she was in her twenties the whole interview.
Good host! Dating app episode
Nancy Jo Sales is a chronic victim blaming capitalism, men, the culture, and anything else for her woes, never taking responsibility for herself. She’s obviously damaged goods. God help her. Daniele remained fair and cool throughout the interview.
