#107 – Twitter is in the Sh**ter
An episode of Lewis Black’s Rantcast
Our host checks in with us home from his humble abode as Elon Musk nearly destroys Twitter, winter comes to New York in full force and Buffalo gets an unbelievable amount of snow. Oh my! This year, fall didn’t happen. It went from summer right into winter. There wasn’t even a chance to feel a slight chill in the air. You probably didn’t even have a chance to grab your fall jacket. No. It went right into freezing cold weather. How about that crazy amount of snow Buffalo got? Unreal. There’s some people in this country who have psychotic amounts of money and just love to play around with it. Elon Musk is one of them. How are you going to take over a company and not know what to do with it? Firing the staff, bringing them back and throwing them in the deep end? Having a vote to decide if the former leader should be allowed on the platform or not? Speaking of the former leader, he decided to announce he’s going to be running again. Politicians are already asking people to donate to their campaign again. Really? Give people a break. We just got done with that. Atleast give us until after Thanksgiving. Lewis takes some much needed time off this week and is going on vacation. He’s heading up to Vermont this week (instead of traveling internationally) with his friend, Neil. Vermont really is beautiful this time of year. Also, Lewis recently went to a benefit in Bethesda, Maryland for a cystic fibrosis run by his friend Rich. Rich has even started a new organization called the “Luvu Project.” The “Luvu Project” does extraordinary work when it comes to mental health in the workplace. The link is below to check out the project. Also, if you’re interested, a link is below to the kickstarter for the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library. This kickstarter helps fun programs at the library such as their youth writing program, Sophie’s Banned Book Club, Social Justice Writing Workshop Series, as well as increasing access to its education programs to learners from all over the world. Lewis wishes you all a lovely Thanksgiving. And as always, take care of each other. It’s the most important thing we can do for one another.
