My Thoughts: Four hours of a YouTuber and Joe chatting about feminists, social justice warriors, politics, religion, the flat earth conspiracy theory, chemtrails, ancient civilizations, and other stuff you’ve likely heard before. It took me three days to work up the motivation to get through this. Joe gets a little pissed off at him towards the end when talking about ancient civilizations and structures.
