This episode is for anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of mean remarks or straight up hatorade. Writer, podcaster, and comedian Dylan Marron joins us to talk about the power of empathy through lessons he’s learned by talking to the people who make nasty comments to him online. We talk about his podcast and new book with the same name, Conversations With People Who Hate Me. Plus, we break down the motivations for seeking out information about strangers who hurt us on the internet. And once you get that information, what power does it have? Also, Dylan shares his thoughts on calling haters “trolls,” shares his hopes for our listeners, attempts to explain Turtle Bay, and more! Also, Carolyn thinks she’s found the queerest place in NYC while Melody ventures to Astoria. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is having an impossible time trying to find someone to date.
