541: Mike Tyson, Appeal of Chaos, & Influencer Speak


Show Notes

Today we talk about the documentary Dick Johnson is Dead, and the ways that a filmmaker is confronting her dad’s mortality. We examine the legacy of Mike Tyson, and how befuddling it is to have a man who is at once a champion, an underdog, and a villain. We learn about the appeal of perversity and why people are inclined to look at train wrecks and be violent without any apparent payoff. Susie reveals the ways influencers, YouTubers, and TikTokers adjust their speech for their videos unknowingly. And we hear why Norway is cracking down on influencers’ altered images.
