She clearly doesn't know anything about anything. How do people like this get put in such positions? She must have been selected by a YouTube algorithm.

It's always interesting to hear how dumb the vaunted titans of industry actually are. The YouTube CEO doesn't know much about the technology she oversees, but she has vocal fry and up-talk, and that's enough for Silicon Valley.

It seems YouTube merely magnifies the consequences of people's credulity, gullibility, and insecurity. It seems like less of a supply-side problem than a demand-side problem.

The hosts should learn to speak English well enough not to restate the subject in nearly every sentence--e.g., "This guy, he...," "This thing, it..." You just said the subject; you don't need to restate it as a pronoun. Move on to the verb as if you know English well enough to work for the NYT.

Somehow, this podcast has both too many jump cuts and a lumbering pace. It's both frenetic and tedious.

Q is bullshit. They are going to push and push until we are literally in chains! STOP FIGHTING IN THEIR ARMIES! Stop paying taxes! Stop obeying their ridiculous rules that are not even LAWS! THIS IS JUST ANOTHER DISTRACTION TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM REBELLION. ANYONE SEE ANY ARRESTS?! ANYONE SEE OUR LIVES GETTING BETTER? ALL I SEE IS A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE GIVING THESE MAGGOTS PRECIOUS TIME TO TAKE DOWN TAKE DOWN AMERICA! JUST ANOTHER WAY TO BRAINWASH AMERICANS! WAKE UP AND STOP BEING A SUCKER!

This definitely not a definition of the right, this is the far right. i am conservative but those guys in the beginning are AWFUL. What's crazy now is that the radical left now has the same ideas as the far right. Both "alts" are the same, same ideology, just hateful people. I have both liberal and conservative friends. I wont be friends with a person that dislikes any race or blames any race for their own issues. It is really about the individual. If you work hard, you can make something of yourself. Money doesn't matter, but can help. It can also harm. Stay on the inside of whatever political party you choose....don't go too far into radical land.

More truth from the Internet than CNN msnbc and all the other leftard news channels. Why not do a podcast on the evil of the socialist left trying to take over your country by poisoning the minds of kids.. Look at the mental sjw opinions and cancel culture... F*** the left... F*** the socialists

Show should called "a leftards view of the internet". Literally dismisses every Conservative viewpoint but fails to see that its just as toxic from the left. The SJW bull$#it that's ruining the world and fake news anti trump lunatics are ignored.... Grow a brain dude

interesting podcast. definitely went downhill from episode 1, but still a decent listen. I'm just not sure that the New York Times is the best outlet to be providing this insight considering how biased they are... I mean just look at their Russia collusion reporting, it is astonishing in its lack of fact, sourcing, or precision when compared to reality.
