This episode is hosted by Trevor. Today we have Felix Biederman from the leftist comedy and commentary podcast Chapo Trap House https://www.patreon.com/chapotraphouse/. We discuss the role of Chapo and the shape of the “New New Left” after Bernie Sanders’ campaign has ended, do a postmortem on the campaign, discuss Felix’s MMA documentary “Fighting in the Age of Loneliness” (https://www.sbnation.com/a/mma-history), Biden’s trainwreck of a campaign and if he’s being underestimated, his views on gaming, Twitch, fans who dream of microcelebrity, and how annoying catchphrases and a constant desire to go viral has ruined online discourse.
