Discussion with YouTuber ContraPoints

A few days ago, I did a live discussion with fellow YouTuber ContraPoints (who I’m a huge fan of). We discussed several topics surrounding our personal approaches to discussing politics and social justice on YouTube. Check it out here!

Remember Why You Do it

  Sometimes I find myself caught in YouTube rabbit holes where I think of something I want to watch, and that makes me think of something else to search for, which then makes me think of something else that would be cool, and so on. There are these compilations that fans of Jenna Marbles and…

The Good Guys Don’t Always Win

One of the interesting things about religion is the assurance that no matter what happens, the good guys will win the end.

The Gender Pay Gap – REDUX

In this video I revisit my recent video, “THE GENDER PAY GAP IS NOT A MYTH” and respond to many of the most common ideas from the comments.

The Gender Pay Gap is Not a Myth

This video is essentially a vlog version of something I wrote for this website a few weeks ago. In that blog I talk about conventional wisdom and how it’s sometimes obviously right, but also how sometimes it’s surprisingly wrong. Because what’s generally accepted often turns out to be wrong, I try to pay attention whenever…
