Ryan Long, comedian and filmmaker, connects with Bridget from New York and they discuss his move from Canada five months before the pandemic hit, why NYC is a sadboy town, the challenges of being a self-starter and your own boss, the outrage economy, why good editors are so hard to find, and why Canada is dead to him. In the middle of their conversation Bridget receives breaking news of the lockdown at the Capitol on January 6th but that doesn’t derail the conversation. They delve into how Hollywood woke culture feels like a last ditch attempt  to maintain their status as gatekeepers, why Millennials are really just young Boomers in disguise, the difference between British comedy, American comedy, and Australian comedy, and how finding a way to turn something you might get mad about into something funny is a means of undermining your anger.

    Another enjoyable show, but I disagree with Ryan’s assertion that young people today don’t have the things they were promised.  Who exactly promised them what?  I don’t recall anyone telling their kids 10-15 years ago that by the time they are 25 they ought to have a brand new car and own their own home.  Perhaps some young people are living under the impression that their parents were materially successful without having to work hard for it, but they would be mistaken.
