Writer and commentator Stephen L. Miller sits down with Bridget to discuss what drew him into journalism and media, the hypocrisy he saw, when the reality of the story and how it's being covered are vastly different, building an audience and a platform, how he and Bridget met, and when online battles seep into the real world. They cover the gender debates, Dave Chappelle, the evolution of the ongoing moral panics, what's interesting about RFK Jr's candidacy, why liberal women need to be the ones to step into the trans debates, the fallout they face when they do, the upcoming elections, when parents realized what their kids were being taught in school, and why the only thing that mattered about the Trump years is who came out of it with their integrity in tact, because they're the people worth listening to. Check out Stephen's podcast Versus Media on Substack.
Bridget Phetasy admires grit and authenticity. On Walk-Ins Welcome, she talks about the beautiful failures and frightening successes of her own life and the lives of her guests. She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all. By embracing it all, and celebrating it with the stories she’ll bring listeners, she believes that our lowest moments can be the building blocks for our eventual fulfillment.
