This week, we're joined by The New Republic's Alex Pareene (@Pareene) to talk about extremely online mayors, and why the upcoming London Mayoral Race is filled with internet personalities who care way more about their individual grievances against Twitter and Facebook than about the cities they actually want to run. It's not just in London either! We also talk about the New York City mayoral race and how its frontrunner - former Presidential candidate Andrew Yang - has also utilised his poster's brain to amass widespread support outside of New York. We also talk about the Kraft Mayo post and, specifically, what happens when you get so mad at a guy you've invented in your own head that you have to invent another guy to fight that guy.
