We kick off 2018 with our monthly Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) check-in. [00:57] On the agenda: what we *should* be paying attention to in all this Bannon-Trump drama — like, say, nuclear war. And, we find out how the Never Trump movement is doing.
Then, we talk with BuzzFeed writer and author Scaachi Koul (@Scaachi) [38:14] about the controversy over Youtube star Logan Paul’s posting of a video from Japan’s “suicide forest,” where we draw familiar parallels to the Trump era.
Read Scaachi’s piece about Paul here.
She also has an essay collection, out now, called One Day We’ll All Be Dead And None Of This Will Matter.
Ana mentioned another BuzzFeed piece about child exploitation on Youtube, here.
