I got bad news on that front, mate. Just the brief hit-and-run of stuff that I can remember, but not bothering with links because as you’re about to see it would take forever:
Click for Large wall of text listing everything I remember
Mocking a rape victim about her rape(And refusing to apologize to anyone but their own subreddit when called out, and then lying about the person they mocked, and on another occasion, a joke about Bill Cosby that resulted in a DSA-LA steering comittee member stepping down), making pretty regular jokes about sexual assault, pretty much constant ablest language and jokes(They were, for a time, particularly fond of calling people “Retards”, for example, and often use autism as an accusatory slur), they mock fat people, Joking about how if they lived in the Black communities of Philidelphia they’d want to get blown up too(in reference to the MOVE bombings that killed 11 and left 250 people homeless) as well as joking about starving black children(with the added implication that Black parents are bad parents).
Don’t worry, still more.
One member of the team regularly referring to women as “Dimes”, they regularly throw out “Ironic” bigotry as if it’s not still just bigotry, they talk about how Identity politics, Feminism, and other social justice topics are just a “Distraction” from class issues, they categorically reject feminism as a useful movement or method of analysis/critique(including, for example, suggesting the hate-filled mysoginistic backlash to Ghostbusters was actually the fault of the cast and the girl-power-centric marketing), they’re closely connected with CumTown(who are notorious harassers, who also pal around with Nazis).
Ready for more? Deep breath, we’re going back in.
Regularly attacking people with mental health issues(for example, Amber taking Sady Doyle’s article about her hospital stay due to bipolar depression, and using it to dismiss Sady’s criticism of her, by outright lying to people, saying Sady was having a “Relapse” and therefore couldn’t be trusted. Or Felix mocking a bipolar writer, making fun of him for taking lithium, and asking how often he needed to get lithium injections in the neck to be allowed on twitter), they regularly use homophobic language, they are regularly grossly anti-semetic.
Don’t worry, starting to scrape the bottom of the memory barrel now.
They pal around with harcore TERF and quasi-alt-right shit Angela Nagle, as well as continuing to pal around with or spotlighting sexual abusers/harassers like Sam Kriss, Matt Tabibi, Jordan Chariton, when asked about the possibility of transcriptions of their podcast for leftists with hearing disabilities by the DSA Disability section, they refused and made jokes about it, they accused all disabled leftists of being wreckers and cops while tacitly suggesting they should be pushed out of the movement, they went hard after a Black DSA elected rep for not calling out racism politely enough(because the person he was calling out was a friend of Chapo host Amber), and finally, their name is at best edgy toeing right at the line of racism, at worst, just racist.
And that’s just what I remember off the top of my head, and not including the side-stuff that involves them tangentially, like how their fans have an enormous reputation for gamergate-level harassment which they do nothing to dissuade, and could even be seen as tacitly encouraging(and as I mentioned in another thread, that includes one occasion where some chapo turds tried to SWAT me), or the fact that Richard Spencer and a curious number of other alt-right fucksticks are fans of theirs, or the fact that their hardcore fans named their fan group after the Grey Wolves, a Turkish ultranationalist terrorist group slash death squad.
As to Luke’s point about popularity - their download figures are private, but estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands. They have more people following just the twitter account for the podcast itself than there are DSA members total, and their listenership, while unpublished, is also almost certainly greater than total DSA membership. They are undeniably the most popular left-wing political podcast in existence, definitely the most popular progressive podcast on the internet. I’m almost certain they’re the most popular political podcast, period.
Edit - Added a fold. Also, yay, remembered how to use the fold tags in discourse.
