Good episode? Give it some love!
It’s only been a couple days into the new year and we are already facing the threat of nuclear war and global destruction. We start our podcast off with a discussion of the recent twitter threats of Donald Trump, the fact that he’s threatening nuclear war, and the madness we’ve descended with his presidency. We give a quick recap of the recent bombshells from the Russia investigation before talking more deeply about internet and gaming culture. We discuss the tragic news of a case of swatting in Kansas. We talk about the darker sides of the internet, the nature of trolling, and the desensitization that the platform produces. This leads us to discussing the outrage over Logan Paul’s recent video exploiting a dead body in Japan’s suicide forest. We critique the systems of incentives in youtube and our fame-culture that create people like Logan Paul.
