260. Roxane Gay: Should We Quit Social Media?
Author and cultural observer, Roxane Gay, examines the landscape of the internet and our relationship with it. We discuss the line between constructive criticism and online toxicity; how to decide when to speak up and when to stay quiet; and how to stay human and allow redemption in an online world that demands perfection.
Plus, a breakdown of our shared unguilty pleasure: Naked Attraction.
