Conor Friedersdorf (The AtlanticMeeting Triumph and Disaster) and Phoebe Maltz Bovy (The Signal, The Perils of "Privilege", Feminine Chaos on Patreon)

On Friedersdorf, Conor and Phoebe discuss the plague of parental oversharing. What kind of privacy is owed to celebrities like Justin Bieber? Phoebe describes traveling to Japan, where it was impossible for her to “pass” as a native. Moving to the Isla Vista shooting, Conor argues that the media should deny notoriety to mass shooters. Phoebe complicates the narrative around #YesAllWomen, and wonders whether “rape culture” is a useful term. Conor and Phoebe critique the idea of “checking your privilege”—is this just a way for insanely privileged people to nitpick each others’ lives? Plus: Why Conor is accused of privilege when he criticizes drone warfare.
