Canceling Cancel Culture

Andy Signore is the creator of the widely popular channel ScreenJunkies and its Emmy nominated series Honest Trailers, as well as the successful digital-turned-TV sword-making series: Man At Arms. Now he leads the channel Popcorned Planet. Andy joins Carol to share his story about his journey after being wrongfully accused of a “#MeToo” episode and his two-year fight to reclaim his name, all while dealing with his own personal challenges and actions. We talk about canceling cancel culture, from Dave Chappelle’s new Netflix comedy special to Carol’s recent run in with the online mob and Andy’s new project, Hugging the Cactus. This is a must listen for everyone navigating the culture wars and social media.

In our Now You Know segment, Andy shares how Arnold Schwarzenegger’s fame was almost altered.

    Excellent interview Ms. Roth! I do not know Mr. Signore’s particular story as I’m not really a YouTube person but he sounds like a man who has learned a lesson and is growing from it. Also interested to hear more about your situation which I heard about briefly. I think there is something wrong with the way Facebook, Google, etc work which is exacerbating the whole cancel culture. Its too easy to do – especially to anyone who is conservative or libertarian.

    I’ve watched or listened to every episode of Andy’s Movie Fights and I’m glad to see he’s not giving up. The show still exists, but has certainly gone downhill in some ways without him. I can certainly hear the maturity in him now versus then. Thanks for the interview.

    Yeah. It does sound like he went on quite a journey and I just subscribed to his new channel.
