CobWEBs Daily Edition – Sexism is alive and well in social media & blogging


Welcome to another week of the daily edition of CobWEBs, the flagship podcast of The Cynical Bastards!

For those who don’t remember from the other episodes, this is a new format for the show as we are going to try giving you daily bite sized chunks of our patented brand of cynicism over everything in the tech universe. The show will have a rotating host schedule between Steven Hodson, Mark ‘Rizzn’ Hopkins and myself. You’ll always get two of us, you just never know which two!

Steven Hodson and I discuss how social media seems to not only be full of sexism, but people looking to deny free speech to others as we look at what happened with Penelope Trunk, Meghan McCain and Jan Moir.  (thanks to Steven for digging up the following relevant links)

Penelope talks miscarriage – gets slammed, Pulver talks penis – gets patted on back
Don’t Call Me a Slut
Meghan McCain twitter photo is hot, draws haters
Jan Moir, the Web, Free Speech and the Wisdom of Mobs

Push the big green button and have a listen in!
