The Intellectual Snark Web
It's time to explore the Intellectual Dark Web with guests Sam Bivins and Matthew Robinson! Together everyone examines the Bari Weiss article about the IDW (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/08/opinion/intellectual-dark-web.html) and the Nellie Bowles article about Jordan Peterson (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/18/style/jordan-peterson-12-rules-for-life.html). Much fun is had mocking the terrible photography and overall pretentiousness of both articles. Debated: Is Sam Harris actually on the right? What is wrong with being right wing? And what is actually on the real intellectual dark web?
Also discussed: Matthew Robinson's standup characters and hatred from the MDE subreddit, listener suggestions for a new soundboard, the fact that Eric Weinstein is Peter Thiel's henchman, and how Jordan Peterson is jumping the shark!
