Kashmir Hill, New York Times Tech reporter, sits down with Bridget to discuss her new book, Your Face Belongs To Us: A Secretive Startup's Quest To End Privacy as We Know It. Kashmir explains how an app called Clearview AI can identify anyone based on just one snapshot of their face with astonishing accuracy and how thousands of law enforcement agencies around the world are already using this technology. She and Bridget cover the ramifications of this technology - both positive and negative, how the US has been slow to pass federal privacy laws and has not kept up with advancements in technology, the story behind the creation of Clearview AI and their advancements in facial recognition technology, how it could fundamentally change our lives and the way we interact in the world moving forward.
Bridget sits down with Noam Blum, Chief Technology Officer at Tablet magazine, for a conversation about the Israel/Palestine conflict. They discuss the atmosphere of rhetoric inflation that allows more people to speak with blatant antisemitism, ever more extreme language getting a continuous pass in progressivism, how the language of academia seems divorced from the language of the people, and seeing a lot of disillusionment and feelings of isolation among people as they react to the conflict. They cover how the people who have spent the last several years telling others to stay in their lane are now willing to lecture you about Israel and antisemitism, Noam's prediction of the cultural backlash we'll see in the next few years, how word definitions are widened due to rhetoric inflation because you’re not going to turn a lot of heads by using milder words, the actual definition of the term "settler," why antisemitism is being seen as second degree bigotry and always has to be paired with Islamophobia, resenting the necessity of having to immerse yourselves in gore and horror because the alternative is for people to say it didn’t happen, why you shouldn’t be able to make money off of war porn, and why you should never take a newly released hostage’s statement at face value. Check out Noam's podcast Ambitious Crossover Attempt for more discussion of this topic.
Helen Joyce, author of Trans: When Ideology Meets Reality, sits down with Bridget for an in-depth conversation about the trans activist movement, what inspired her to write the book, what's changed since the book came out in 2021, the bullshit idea that everything can be blamed on feminism, the detransitioners she's met, and how the trans movement is sending women’s rights back to the dark ages. They discuss the sense that women have been abandoned in the culture wars, queer theory, the rise of conspiratorial thinking, how much faith she used to have in the institutions of our society and why she no longer trusts them, the definition of a moral injury, how gender ideology breaks things in exactly the place they're meant to work, being told that it’s a civil right to choose your gender, why she feels she's doing exactly what she’s supposed to be doing, and why you should never validate the delusion because you will lose control of the ward.

These two hit it off right off the bat by bonding over peeing their pants and the show ‘I Think You Should Leave.’ They get even deeper by discussing what Brianna’s childhood was like as an only child basically living in a room full of rodents and what her life is like now co-hosting podcasts with Dave Portnoy, Josh Richards, and her best friend Grace... At the ripe age of 24! Bri built her brand off of being the hungover girl on TikTok, and since leaving her small hometown she has (almost) lost her Boston accent, sold out her first live podcast tour (in one day), and yet remained friends with the same people she grew up with.
