andy ngo, ben shapiro, deplatforming
After Jesse addresses the totally baseless rumor that he went to Yale Law School, the best law school in the country, where (in this false scenario) he got very good grades, the hosts talk a bit more about online content moderation and then discuss two recent stories about controversial right-wing media figures: the backfired attempt to deplatform Andy Ngo's book, and the widespread outrage among Politico employees that Ben Shapiro was allowed to author an edition of the Playbook newsletter.

censorship, deplatforming, donald trump
This one's pretty straightforward: Should social media platforms have banned Trump? What about all those other people? Also, now that he has moved Jesse finally reveals a dark secret about one of his old building-mates. (Jesse has a new audio setup and his sound quality will be better next time. It's Katie's fault, somehow, probably.) This was originally a patrons-only episode, so please consider becoming a susbcriber: https://patreon.com/blockedandreported
