Episode details

This is a big one. A “mega-episode,” if you will.

Today we’re joined by Taylor Lorenz, internet culture reporter for the New York Times. We talk about our ever-changing digital world, TikTok hype houses (Rob joined one! Real! Not clickbait! Gone wrong!), how corporate PR departments compile dossiers on reporters and intimidate into silence, and more.

We’re also joined by…..and we’re sorry for this….Ken Klippenstein from the Nation to talk about the Jamaal Bowman & Eliot Engel race & what Engel’s sudden high profile endorsements signal to people watching carefully.
