Episode #8×03: ‘When We Were Young’ Fest, Pervasive Antisemitism, Neil Young Threatens Spotify Over Rogan

  • Exciting news! We’ve got a BIG panel this week – Chloe and Micah join us, and by the end of the recording, we decide we’re having an emo party in Andrew’s house??
  • More exciting news – #Millennial is on Tiktok!
  • LiveNation announced the When We Were Young festival, tugging the heartstrings of geriatric emo kids everywhere. Will we go? Is it safe? Can everyone crash at Andrew’s?
  • In the wake of the hostage situation at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, Chloe and Micah speak to their experiences being Jewish in 2022. Why is antisemitism so pervasive?
  • Jewish people make up 2% of the US population, yet are targeted in 55% of religious hate crimes. In the wake of these atrocities, why aren’t more allies speaking up?
  • The perception that Jewish people “rule the world” is alive and well with many people, which perpetuates antisemitism. How do we break this cycle?
  • What can allies do? Speaking up is a great first step!
  • Neil Young is asking Spotify to kick Joe Rogan off its platform over vaccine misinformation, or else he’ll leave the platform.
  • Is this a free speech issue? Does Spotify need to examine its own values?

  • Micah wants to know how Andrew got lucky the other night.
  • Did some of Bruce or Obama’s spit flecks end up in Andrew’s signed book?
  • What things do we silently (or not so silently) judge people for? Bad tipping is an obvious first stop on this complain train, but we’ve got plenty to gripe about!
  • For dog owners, we have one important question – what color are your dog’s poop bags?
