Last month, Morten Bay (a Research Fellow at the Center for the Digital Future at USC Annenberg) published a study which revealed that the hate directed at Rian Johnson on Twitter over The Last Jedi was not what it seemed. I'm talking to him today about his findings and what they mean for the "Everyday Jedi" out there. Punch it! ***I'm listener supported!
