Dean Kissick, New York editor for Spike Quarterly, joins Rhizome’s Aria Dean and Lauren Studebaker for episode 2 of Rhizome’s podcast. He opens the conversation with a quote from someone named Matt on his group DM, who seemed to capture the zeitgeist when he lamented, “This was the worst year for the internet yet. Almost all content produced was garbage. The general experience of being online was sheer agony and the downstream effects seemed to be universally negative with no discernible silver lining.”
Listen now to Aria, Dean, and Lauren as they recount the experience of being online in 2018 in harrowing detail.
