About this Episode

Journalist Isaac Saul joins the show to discuss how he reflects on his teenage indiscretions and use of slurs like "faggot" and the N-word in light of today's cancel culture. We tackle the need for grace, growth, and nuance in our culture of outrage and Twitter mobs but also how we balance this with the real need to address racism and bias. Plus, we break down his new project Tangle News that seeks to transcend hyperpartisan inflammatory journalism, and tackle the problems facing the media industry more broadly.
