Episode 5: Those Who Speak Out Against Cancel Culture Must Be Cancelled Immediately (Robyn Kanner)

Robyn Kanner (https://robynkanner.com/) is a writer and designer in Brooklyn who has written for The New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/16/opinion/esquire-american-boy-cancel-culture.html), The Atlantic (https://www.theatlantic.com/family/archive/2018/06/i-detransitioned-but-not-because-i-wasnt-trans/563396/), Wired (https://www.wired.com/story/why-we-love-tech-twitter-phone-humanity/), Broadly (https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/wj339z/alcoholism-sobriety-running-this-is-fine), and other outlets. Lately, she's written some powerful and personal stuff about social media, cancel culture, addiction, and empathy. She also took the bold step of putting her phone number in her Twitter profile so that the haters could reach out directly. We talked about all this and more, including a bit of NBA at the end. Also, here's my two-hour-plus appearance (https://soundcloud.com/girlschat/singal-white-female-with-jesse-singal) on the podcast Girls Chat that I mention in the intro to this episode, God help me.
