This stream is scheduled earlier because I have a meeting and need to move it forward. Sorry!
I want to step back from the Culture Wars, and focus on digging deeper. Being kinder. Listening more. Being more “me”.
Talking about the “Issues” or the News/Outrage of the day was good whilst I was trying to upskill and not have to think too much about content… but I want to be more “Bill Burr” than “Tim Pool”.
We’re all crazy. We’re all tired. We’re all hurting. And I want to be a soothing/funny/weird/comforting voice.
Why I Quit Politics
Facebook & Google News Case
Fans & Parasocial Relationships & the problem of “support communities”
This stream is a twice-weekly mega-record with segments that are later edited.
It’s like a studio audience, except shitter. There’s less polish, lots of tangents, a whole lot more swearing and (of course) my patented simple 89 point lighting system.
Join me. Or watch the clips. Either way, I don’t mind.
