IC #9: Voice Chats from Hell

This week Michael and Randolf get into Elon Musk’s new Big Fucking Rocket project and the weirdness of r/Pyongyang and other Reddit-specific memes. Also Pewdiepie’s racist slur controversies, Michael’s busy playing PUBG, the SNES Classic, and some GIBI featuring people in real life doing bad things.

(Note: there is a discussion of a news story about sexual assault of a minor between 51:56 and 54:50, so please skip that section if you’d prefer not to hear it.)
