Conor Friedersdorf (The AtlanticMeeting Triumph and Disaster) and James Poulos (Forbes, Free Radicals, The Daily Beast)

On Friedersdorf, Conor and James kick things off by discussing Tom Scocca’s viral Gawker article defending snark and attacking smarm. They consider the perils of Internet fame for regular people.

James extols the virtues of “view from somewhere” journalism. And they conclude by discussing millennials, the “passion economy,” and the dark side of geeking out.
