Awesome podcast, again Sociologically relevant. ( I am on the waiting list to check out The Problem with Everything from the library.)
Some of the things that stood out for me:

-Socialism is enjoying a ‘new dawn’.
-Both ‘punching up’ and ‘punching down’ disempower the practitioner
-Honesty in society may be becoming more useful for procuring interdependent functionality.
-Social norms’ of thinking in public by in large is not embraced.
-In recognition of the changes in how people are interacting with each other it is wise in conversation to allow ample time for the flow of expression to take shape and longer (old school) conversations may have more value.
-Identity does not equal ideology.
