This week we're joined by Ashwin Rodrigues, a journalist who writes for GQ, among other places, to discuss the ongoing Republican nominee debates, all of which seem to centre around posting.
At the forefront of it all is Vivek Ramaswamy, a venture capitalist who simply refuses to log off until he defeats wokeness. Which means that until then, we all have to watch his weird workout videos and bizarre fixations on minor tiktok celebrities.
