About

What are you?

I'm a writer and video producer creating videos about propaganda in media. I used to produce a video series called "Strikethrough" at Vox, and have angered some of the worst people on the internet. Ted Koppel once called me a "marxist pig" to my face, but I'm pretty sure he was being flirty.

What's happening?

I'm creating long-form video essays about media manipulation. Which is a very sexy way of saying I'm making videos about how to detect and resist bullshit, whether its on cable news, social media, or YouTube. I try to be funny and entertaining while using simple demonstrations to help break down big concepts. Think of it like taking a "media literacy" class, except the professor is also a student and keeps trying to get the class to grab their pitchforks and burn the place to the ground.

What is all this?

There's not a lot of room in corporate media for long-form video essays, especially ones that are explicitly anti-capitalist and anti-fascist. But I think that this kind of work -- helping people think critically about the media they consume -- is super important. So I decided to go independent, and I hope that a small group of dedicated patrons will help me keep producing the kind of work I really care about.
