About this Episode

Reason senior editor Robby Soave joins the show to break down the "cancel culture" phenomenon. Having been on the outrage culture beat for years now—and authored a whole book about its origins on campus—Robby explains what cancel culture, properly understood, really is—and what it isn't. We discuss this definition, high profile examples, whether Republicans are hypocrites, cancelling the cancelers, and more.
