I Don't Speak German

Jul 29, 2023

While Daniel and Jack continue working towards resumption of IDSG, Jack is once again invited by best-friend-of-the-pod Eiynah (@nicemangos of the Polite Conversations podcast) to co-host a Twitter space [obligatory Elon Musk joke here] about the new Barbie movie and the tsunami of reactionary tears it has invoked.  Conversation (with contributions from various guests) ranges over the movie itself and Barbie herself, Musk and X, Dutch politics, the culture wars, Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, Piers Morgan, and that weird guy on YouTube who dresses like a medieval knight.  Obviously, this being an X space (sigh), sound quality is variable.
