3 years ago I remember watching Rubin Report interviews about where our politics was going wrong. As my thinking evolved, I became more and more isolated in the super woke comedy industry I was part of. /Thread
I was starting to lose bookings for saying things like "maybe obesity IS bad for your health" or "maybe we should go back to MLK's idea of judging people on how they behave, not what they look like".
Day by day, as I became clearer and more honest about what I thought, I became more and more "problematic". Naively, I thought "Being clear about what you think is good. Now we can discuss and debate and all learn something from each other!" Honestly, I was that stupid.
As time went on, I realised that we no longer do debate and discussion. We now have the right opinion and the wrong opinion. I was stuck and I was lost.
Then came the Cathy Newman interview with Jordan Peterson. It was a life-changing moment. I realised that the media no longer reported objectively on events. They had an agenda. And their agenda was to embrace the forces that were intent on tearing down the Western World.
Someone had to bring back the conversation and as Rogan and Rubin had shown before, who better than a stand-up comedian? That's when I approached @francisjfoster and we started @triggerpod together. Now, just 2 years on we do it full time thanks to our fans and supporters.
And yesterday, one small circle was completed when we had @RubinReport on our show. I won't give away too much as our interview comes out tomorrow but let's just say it was inspirational. If you feel stuck and lost, don't give up and don't give in. Look for inspiration./End
