LR 77: Covid Schmovid: Tamara and Garrett Unhinged
We unleash our real thoughts on the covid-schmovid nonsense that bugs us, and we go off on social media and the tech industry at-large while they’re at it. The New York Times describes this episode as ‘recklessly indulgent’ and we’re honestly concerned you’re still listening to us at this point. Disclaimer: This is NOT a political podcast. We think it’s a little ridiculous that things we have opinions about want to talk about are so politicized that we can’t touch them without assumptions being made about a whole slew of other things. So we ask that our listeners suspend reality for a minute and pretend that statements like “our rights are being invaded” or “covid is dangerous” DON’T automatically put you on one far side of the political aisle.
