Completely Conspicuous 446: Picking Up the Pieces

Part 1 of my conversation with guest Matt Phillion as we discuss the aftermath of the election. Listen to the episode below or download directly.
 

Show notes:
- Check out Matt's book Like a Comet: The Indestructibles Book 4
- Thought this was going to be a very different show
- Didn't expect a Trump victory
- Social media was raw the day after the election
- Family and friend disagreements
- You can't change anybody's mind on social media
- Friendships are ending over the election
- Hiding or unfriending people
- Plenty of blame to go around
- People don't fact check things before passing them along
- Thanksgiving could be disastrous this year
- Many people may avoid it altogether
- A whole group of people got left behind and Trump tapped into that
- A deplorable soundbite
- Promising everything
- We're insulated in Massachusetts
- Oh, Florida
- Dealing with post-election feelings
- Racist and dumb is quite the combination
- To be continued
