Why is everybody picking on this humble water filter salesman?

I liked Joe Rogan in News Radio. I like his guests, but the few times I've watched (Macaulay Culkin, Elon Musk), Joe's guests have gone over his head.

Haha Macauley going over anyone's head says a lot about them! The Elon Musk interview was interesting. Elon's opinions are pretty simple, but you can tell he's formed them after a lot of thought.

I don't know. There was this bit where Macaulay was trying to talk about whether an artist has the right to change his or her work after it's published and he used Leonardo Da Vinci coming back to change the Mona Lisa as an example. Macaulay tried several times to get the conversation back on track, but Joe just wouldn't stop doing impersonations of Italians.

Yes, I think the Elon Musk interview was interesting, but purely for Elon. Joe didn't really add anything, other than offering the guy a blunt.

Also, Ali, funny you would think Macaulay is centre right. Most people outside of a vegan naturist preserve would call him left leaning.

After a lot of acid, more like.

I think Ali was talking about Rogan - right or center right.  (laugh)

He was talking about who Joe Rogan is prepared to talk politics with.

I will admit, I do not know what the child from Home Alone's politics are. I'm just aware that Rogan has softball interviewed enough reactionary, bigoted conservative "thinkers" for me to have no interest.

I caught about an hour of the Twitter (Jack Dorsey and Vijaya Gadde; Vijaya is head of policy and trust at Twitter) and Tim Pool talk. Very interesting to listen to Vijaya describe the challenges of preserving free speech while also upholding a line of what sort of language and conduct requires intervention. As she says many times, so much of the free speech debate comes down to context, its interpretation, and having a policy that is capable of identifying behavior versus content.

Ben Shapiro was a recent guest. I'm not really sure what to make of that guy. He seems very intelligent and very capable of stringing together a logical series of ideas, and I admire his work ethic and discipline, but several things he supports are hard to get behind. There is a lot of nuance to what he says, but his general his pro-life, pro-private health insurance, pro-gun, and anti-welfare thing just seems sort of out of touch with modern day reality. His whole libertarian "let's privatise everything and just let buddies help each other" approach to public service is just weird. I mean, a system like that works if everyone is Ben Shapiro, everyone is straight and interested in marriage/kids, and everyone has a community their family interacts with on a weekly basis, but if you're not that it's sort of a utopia that doesn't apply. I, however, do appreciate Ben's willingness to talk about his ideas, and he doesn't seem to devolve into a ball of emotional outrage when people don't agree with him. Also the lack of swearing is nice.
