I watched Matt Taibbi’s livestream on Substack yesterday. I like that guy. Who wouldn’t? He’s so normal. Lots of “Um’s” and looking off into space for a moment as he searches for words, sometimes stammering at the beginning of a sentence, but always pushing through to make his point. The way he talks is a reflection of how his mind works. You can see him traveling multiple paths of complexity and nuance, making choices along the way, ensuring that what he has to say comes out just the way it should. All unrehearsed. Or seemingly so.
He’s actually a relaxing kind of bloke. And seems totally unimpressed with his own celebrity.
