WARNING: Today's episode contains some sexual language of somewhat graphic nature.
Craigslist used to be a thing, but now it's a decidedly different thing. It's probably because too many people started treating it as a toy, rather than a tool. That's unfortunate. On this episode, Pete and Bill discuss Craigslist at length, as well as discussing a great many other things, like Grindr, taking advantage of straight privilege, Dadboner (again) and guys on YouTube who love big beefy wrestlers.
Pete: I recognize that there's a thrill to this world of people doing something that you're not really privy to, and that there isn't really an analog, like you said, if you could get use out of grindr...but you can't, and there isn't really a version for non-gay men.
Pete: But I think that that part of being...I don't want to say part of being an adult, but I want to say-
Bill: SOCIAL CONTRACT, ASSHOLE!
Pete: Yeah! Part of the social contract is accepting that you don't have an app for getting your thing on.
