This episode is hosted by Trevor. Today we have returning guest Jessa Crispin, of the podcast Public Intellectual (https://www.patreon.com/publicintellectual) and columnist at Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/profile/jessa-crispin). Today we discuss her article about the feminist historical drama “Mrs. America” (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/may/19/mrs-america-hulu-feminism-gloria-steinem-hillary-clinton) and her article about the pattern of failing upward typical in our American media elite (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/feb/24/us-media-elite-newspapers-television-trump-sanders). We also discuss the Influencer Industrial Complex and who it is made up of and created by and why it is so lacking in any sort of depth.
