VTubers are suddenly everywhere. They're AI-powered cartoon anime avatars that stream for hours on platforms like YouTube and Twitch. Luke, before this week, didn't know anything about them. But unfortunately for him, Ryan did a big deep dive into the bizarre companies that own these avatars and now we've got to talk about it. It's weird. It's extr…
 
In this (once again) very late episode, we talk about one of our favourite days in 2015, when the whole world came together online to come to terms with the fact that Prime Minister David Cameron put his (possibly mid?) dick inside a pig. It was a moment that Cameron can't ever escape from, which means he has done what we wish we all could : log of…
 
It's the episode maybe some of you have been waiting for! We're talking about Facebook. It controls the whole world and makes everyone totally miserable. This week, Luke shares the question he's had since 2018: Is the algorithm that powers Facebook stronger and more effective than the algorithm that runs America, i.e. the constitution. This all sou…
 
This week we have a GIANT-SIZED episode for you. Luke and Ryan came up with a list of the 13 most toxic fandoms on the internet and then they attempted to pick just one that is more toxic than all the others. It wasn't easy. There is a lot happening in this episode. Luke yells about books. Ryan has a meltdown about Star Wars. It's a real emotional …
 
Fake influencers. Weird marketing companies. Fake Instagram backdrops. Multi-level-marketing TikTok companies. Nothing online feels real anymore but also feels more important than ever. It wasn't always like this! But now everyone acts like it's normal. Why? When did this change? And does it matter? Also, Luke and Ryan have an extremely long conver…
 
This week Luke and Ryan are talking about small towns! Specifically, what has been happening to small towns on Facebook. Weird conspiracy theories. Toxic fighting. Weird drama. In a world where your local community probably doesn't have a newspaper anymore but definitely has a bunch of deranged Facebook Groups, things can get pretty damn confusing.…
 
It's an election episode! Luke and Ryan have basically ignored the election for the last few months, but this week they're finally getting into it. Ryan shares his theory that Hillary Clinton saying Pokémon Go to the polls was the most important political moment of the last four years and then Luke says a bunch of more sensible things about politic…
 
Luke and Ryan dive into the world of TikTok content houses. Hype House, Sway House, Club House, there are too many to keep track of! What would be like, psychologically, to live in a house full of other influencers grinding for internet traffic? Probably pretty bad! They also talk about British indie rock from the mid-00s. Ryan also lists his vario…
 
On this very late edition of the pod, we're joined by Ryan Broderick, who writes the very good (but sadly, Hentai sparse) Garbage Day newsletter, covering all the weird, bizarre and surreal elements of the online hellworld. He also is a co-host of "The Content Mines" podcast.We were meant to talk about Bodybuilders dot com, specifically, a 2008 thr…
 
We've put it off for a few weeks now, but we're finally getting into it. Let's talk about Q. Luke and Ryan start things off with their first introductions to the bizarre and dangerous (and incredibly asinine) conspiracy theory and also try and unpack where they think this whole thing is headed. Global religion? Weird forgotten quirk of history? Wil…
 
Luke and Ryan canceled their plans for an episode on QAnon this week because another story had come to light that required their attention: The teenage furry who spent seven years filling up the Scots-language Wikipedia with gibberish. This is a BIG episode and there is a lot in it. They talk about linguistics, Scottish history, colonialism, the br…
 
We're talking about witch internet this week! Summer's windy down, spooky season is starting, and recently a group of baby witches cursed the moon. What does that mean? Hell if we know, but we're going to do our best to guide you through it. Also, Ryan went to a psychic in 2019 who told him that 2020 was going to be a really good year for him. What…
 
Reddit's r/relationships subreddit is a treasure trove of dysfunction and misery. Luke is convinced every single post is fake. Ryan is certain that every post is real. Click play if you want to listen to them fight about it for over 50 minutes. Also, this episode was recorded on literally one of the hottest days of the year in both the northeast of…
 
This week, we examine Britain's finest actor, Danny Dyer, who, while promoting a movie about a guy with two wives, posted one of the greatest tweets about 9/11.

The US Army has an eSports team. The US Army's eSports team streams on Twitch. A lot of people are very mad about this.

Luke and Ryan try to wrestle with the very morally strange world of online army recruit…
 
In this episode we debut Chad Phoebe, who has finally been released from the tin can voice prison and no longer sounds like an angry goose. We talk about Robbie Tripp, the guy who defined the term "wife guy", simply for proclaiming his love for his Curvy Wife - and how that spurned an entire genre of Wife Guys, who simply cannot get over the fact t…
 
What is Cottagecore? Is it just a simple trend on TikTok and Instagram about getting back to a simpler life — one that involves a cottage? Or is it some weird new way internet fascists are radicalizing teens? Or is it both? Luke and Ryan try their best to get to the bottom of this extremely important online mystery. Along they way, though, they get…
 
Luke and Ryan dig into the cringey, but beautiful legacy of peak Tumblr. They explore that one fateful weekend in Chicago when a bunch of grifters convinced Tumblr cosplayers to invade an unsuspecting hotel in Chicago to attend the ill-fated DashCon.
