You Can Joke About Anything Except XXXTentacion
Isaac and Charles welcome to the show Bridget Phetasy (@BridgetPhetasy): comedian, podcaster, writer, and Twitter gadfly. XXXTentacion is dead but he's getting comedians cancelled! We talk about Dina Hashem's joke and why there isn't always intellectual honesty in the standup community. Did Dina deserve the backlash because of her background? Does comedy have a future? Or will it just get crushed by the perpetually offended?
Also discussed: the hilariously sad New York Times article about podcasting, who exactly is The Slump God, and why applause is so bizarre.
