My answer is: don’t have a favorite podcaster. Don’t have a favorite Youtuber. Don’t have a favorite twitter account you follow. Media is media is media.

Media is media is media. It is broadcasting: one way communication (made worse with the parasocial relationships online fosters).

I’ll take it out of the parenthesis: parasocial relationships is what distinguishes online broadcasting from TV.

We are lulled into believing we have some kind of relationship with our favorite podcasters and youtubers. Hey, Elon Musk responded to a tweet by a guy just like me! I laughed at his shared joke and therefore I’m but a displaced billionaire! I refer to Elon by his first name, see?

It’s far worse of an infection
