... I’ve been in periods where there’s very low exogenous audience interest, and very high exogenous audience interest.

Almost seems indubitably like a prototypical MiFi poster.

(actually one of the best on the media!)

Good to see someone come out of an interview with Chotiner looking better than when he went in. This is a good interview touching on a bunch of important subjects.

I've always liked the cut of Hayes' jib.

Hayes' podcast Why Is This Happening? is one of the most substantive ones I listen to. He's a good interviewer, clearly a deeply curious person, and the material covers a wide range of topics and information. It's not always optimistic, but it's pretty thoughtful and that in itself is kind of cheering.
