Gen Z Doesn't Care About Privacy - Brad Polumbo

Walk-Ins Welcome Episode #226

Writer and podcaster Brad Polumbo drops in to discuss his evolution into a content creator, the medium through which he's discovered people his age consume political content, and why Gen Z doesn't care about privacy. They talk about how ultimately the media is holding up a mirror and reflecting back to the public what they’re demanding, being caught between two extreme social positions, how most of the public are politically disengaged because they feel despair about politics and the only people that do engage are on the far left and the far right, therefore internet echo chambers and backlash aren’t representative of the culture as a whole, and how the true test of freedom is allowing people to live their lives in ways you don’t approve of. They also discuss Brad's experience as a journalist for the school paper as at an ultra-liberal college, the backsliding into homophobia that we're seeing on the right, seeing activists pushing things that are not age appropriate for children, Brad being mong the first generation of young gay men who were willing to be conservative because the right had become so open to gay marriage, and why he sees it as a sign of tremendous progress that gay people increasingly get to be individuals. Check out Brad's podcast Based Politics.
