What does it mean to “cancel” someone? Why does it happen and who gets to decide? Steph and I have an honest conversation about canceling, boycotting, and harnessing the power of group think on social media. We talk specifically about JK Rowling and the questions about her support for transgender individuals, but also about the broader question of why people want to cancel the people they disagree with on political or social issues. And, what do we do about celebrities like Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson? Does the concept of cancel culture apply to them?
