Episode 218: Troll-o Contendere

Episode 218

When someone posts something offensive or wrong on social media, should you call them out on it?

Episode notes

Charlie brings the case against her boyfriend Brandon. Brandon says that if a friend posts an opinion or thought on social media, he’s entitled to respond with his own thoughts. Charlie says this “calling out” has gone too far.

Who’s right? Who’s wrong? Only one man can decide.

Charles Pierson named this week’s case via the Judge John Hodgman Facebook page. Thanks, Charles!
