This week, we're joined by Owen Jones, a writer, broadcaster and columnist at The Guardian, to talk about why everyone keeps getting mad at his posts, and why he trends once a week on Twitter for the most mundane things. Crucially, we examine what happens when you fully transcend your body and become a symbol in digital space upon which people project all their fears and anxieties onto, and how you can do nothing to stop thins because it's key to how platforms ascertain their fictitious value. We also talk about Pandemic discourses (remember when the maids were hard?), the state of the British media and their obsession with posts, and why, in the heat of an online debate, you should never, ever, show off about your theology PhD and self-published guitar albums.
