About this Episode

Katie regales Jesse with a tale of anti-Herzogian graffiti, and the hosts take a few minutes to thank everyone for the ridiculous start the Patreon is off to. Then they discuss the massive upheavals going on in media, many of them involving editors getting fired after instances of perceived discrimination. Is there a problem trying to adjudicate this stuff via Twitter? Or is this just a necessary realignment of power in a collapsing and unequal industry? Also: Katie confronts Yashar Ali and Jesse (sorta) confronts Alison Roman. Plus, Robin DiAngelo comes up again, and Jesse rants about her again, oh my God what a surprise.
