Episode details

What is Cottagecore? Is it just a simple trend on TikTok and Instagram about getting back to a simpler life — one that involves a cottage? Or is it some weird new way internet fascists are radicalizing teens? Or is it both? Luke and Ryan try their best to get to the bottom of this extremely important online mystery. Along they way, though, they get pretty sidetracked by Taylor Swift's new album and go on a big tangent about Steampunk. Also, Luke has a tweet about a pool that he's been dying to talk about. It's a jam-packed episode!
