Taylor Lorenz joins us again to talk about her upcoming book “Extremely Online: The Untold Story of Fame, Influence, and Power on the Internet.” We explore how the creator economy has ballooned but still lacks basic worker protections afforded to some of their creative counterparts. We spend some time talking about the various worker strikes and the need for unions in other creative industries.
We also, of course, discuss the cop slide video.
