This one begins pretty grim. In episode 49 of sh!tpost, host Jared Holt and co-host Jack discuss the New Zealand terrorist attack carried out by a white supremacist. Data & Society research affiliate and Stanford PhD student Becca Lewis joins us to talk further about networks of extremism online. We then move on to some lighter topics like Egg Boy, Shane Dawson’s cat-sex denial, and Rep. Devin Nunes’ LOLsuit against Twitter shitposters.
