  1. Love and very much respect Jason and most of his content and career but the energy with Molly and their discussions re ev, Airbnb, assistants (“get this off my wrist”), that wine mom decor… it’s all giving off Karen vibes. Really hope Jason doesn’t start peeing sitting down. This stinks of SF elite posturing and soccer mom vibes. Please don’t cancel me for being “miSoGyNisTic”…. online nagging is so scary. The vintage car chit chat was super cringe inducing. These two are the personification of allbirds… it’s like flat late night show faux humour and charm or generic romcom energy.

  2. It costs next to nothing to mint and send NFT in polygon. It's supported by Opensea

  3. Molly Wood: “That’s two White guys named Smith. That’s media for you lol”

    No, Molly. You know damn well that the media is disproportionately made up of guys whose name ends in -berg or -stein.

  4. Pro tips for your show tomorrow on free speech and Gettr and Rogan which I have no doubt you will get wrong.

    Gettr is neither a free speech nor a “far right” platform. The real right wing hate the platform in fact precisely because it isn’t free speech. Gettr is a controlled Conservative Inc platform that is just as censorious as twitter. The only actual free speech social media platform existing today is Gab. So please do not spread misinformation about Gettr being for free speech or the “far right”. It barely tolerates right of center opinions.

  5. NFT for Books is a smart idea. I’m interested in learning more about NFTs, is there any respectable resources? Books? Podcasts? Anything. Lol appreciate it
