About this Episode

After reflecting on the podcast turning one whole year old later this week, Jesse and Katie talk about the massive online uproar over his (and others') continuing presence on Substack, Katie's impressive Brianna-Wu-related fundraising, and the underappreciated connection between GamerGate and 4chan. Then the hosts discuss media coverage of the awful massage-parlor shootings in Atlanta, and particularly the rush to slot them into an oversimplified race narrative.
