In episode 59 of sh!tpost, host Jared Holt is joined by BuzzFeed Senior Reporter Ryan Broderick to discuss the meltdown inside, outside, and on YouTube following the roll-out of policies targeting extremist content. Later we’re joined for a casual conversation with reporter Alex Thomas, who spoke with Ed Krassenstein after he and his brother, Brian, were banned from Twitter. Alex will share what he learned, and we sarcastically muse on their possible next steps.
