ContraPoints with Natalie Wynn

"I've always kind of liked YouTube. I like the chaos of it. I don't even mostly watch politics. I watch a lot of makeup videos. I watch cooking videos. I WATCH VIDEOS OF COMPETITIVE EATING. I just I. I like the kind of like the way that it's so. Diy in the way that these personalities that would never make it not not any chance of making it in conventional media to cut millions of followers on Youtube. Natalie is joked that she failed her way into youtube stardom after dabbling as a musician dropping out of philosophy. Phd Program and attempting to make it as a fiction writer. Natalie pivoted to video this was in two thousand fifteen soon after she moved to Baltimore and the same year. The city's black lives matter. Movement rose up in response to police killing Freddie Gray and online gamer gate. Trolling and harassment was in full. Swing watching that situation and the black lives matter movement also just incredibly ignorant response from most people on the Internet. That kind of sparks. I think my early interest in trying to talk about these topics on Youtube especially once I saw that a lot of the politics that was going on youtube was like ignorant at best and like Senator Fascist propaganda at worst no things to the power of algorithms the more videos Natalie watched on youtube about things like feminism racism et Cetera. The more crazy shit she saw and the deeper she got into the radicalized rabbit holes of Youtube. My recommended videos feed on Youtube was suddenly full of these videos. Titles like feminism is cancer. Black lives matter is a racist terrorist organization. You know Like these are the talking points that were sort of growing on Youtube in two thousand fifteen. I knew enough to know that was bad. Natalie decided to launch her own YouTube channel. Contra points as a new wants to entertain encounter to all the right wing propaganda. She was seeing on the Internet and as a way to understand why these movements were bubbling up in the first place. Her first video was on in. Cells Aka involuntary celebrates and it's been watched more than three million times and this video. I don't WanNa mock insoles or lecture them or even sympathize with them. I just want to understand who they are. And why they're like this to start with. Sometimes the over thirty five minutes Natalie. Deconstructs in Selma Sajjan step by step grappling with their ideas and even offering some empathy. And that's the key to our videos and a real part of her success. So in your videos you confront a lot of toxic ideas around things. Like in sells for instance. So what is your goal? And how do you approach? Debunking these arguments while it is anthropological. I guess in some sense that is. I'm making a video to inform like a general public about this unusual online subculture. Most very aware that the people from that subculture are going to watch the video. So I I TRY TO MAKE VIDEO. That has like an escape hatch or like a life. Preserver a rope thrown whatever metaphor. I WANNA use that basically allows someone who's watching videos as an incentive to not feel like I'm simply just antagonizing them but also the at least making the effort to understand where they're coming from but my natural inclination when I'm reading this stuff is to be like. Oh Wow this is like these. People are horrible. Impossible to get along with their credit misogynistic but they're also like really really lonely and unhappy and I can try to make a video that doesn't just caricature them but 'cause that's pointless to me so. I try to give people three dimensions what I'm describing them when I'm describing these toxic online subcultures. Do you get the kinds of comments along the lines of like Yeah I mean Natalie. One's pretty liberal. But she's not like all those other liberals like I feel like that's a common trope among lake. I don't know in my conservative comment culture. Oh definitely like that's not not like other liberals is definitely kind of part of the brands like the one I hear the most actually is people say they don't feel judged by me They don't feel like I got a call from someone who said like I was only like transgender person. Could stand to watch Because I didn't make feel a dirty word during that. They would claim that about myself. But I'm glad they feel that way because that is exactly what I sort of go for. I guess WanNa make the videos. I mean I noticed early on that. If you're gonNA talk about especially the social justice kinds of issues. People are so defensive about it. And if you'RE GONNA get through to them you have to make a lot of rhetorical concessions. That might seem totally unreasonable. Like you just can't say the word transphobia most of the time it's just it's just people hate it. People hate accused of anything phobia. Just shut their brains. Doubted Shits shut their ears down. They stop listening to you and same with like calling calling. People Racist Sexist misogynist. There's a turn the time and a place for life using these words But it's not when you're trying to persuade general audience. In my opinion it just causes people to shut down. I think that's such a interesting in really important point in terms of like making the rhetorical concessions and it comes up a lot even just in terms of like you know questions we get of like. Should I call myself a feminist? Well that'd be to alienate. I mean just like basic is that. Is it more valuable to make some rhetorical concessions? If you are going to get through to a person versus using the kinds of words that will to use a term trigger trigger a lot of like hybrid conservative or like. Red Pill types. Well it's always it's always a give and take it's a question of. I mean you lose something when you make the rhetorical concessions often but for me it's about I guess I tried to start a strategize. I'm writing a script like how I can make rhetorical concessions without making ideological concessions to of my own

"How do you deal with self doubt and rejection when you've given your all and you still might fail? What should my backup plan B PSI hope to become a patron very soon? Thanks love heath bar ledger. A philosophy PHD asking some real philosophical loss for into cool. I've ever been anxious. Awaiting the results of a life changing decision. Jeff. I mean, college like what where you'll go. Yeah. Did you apply to USC early? I got into a year early. So I guess that was like I was waiting months to know if I would be leaving high school early let you only did high school for three years. Yeah. So after junior year you during junior you apply to USC, correct? And you're like I'll either go back to high school or good at USC. Correct. I didn't know that. Did you know that I knew that a graduated early? I I wouldn't have left if it wasn't for that. Because I got into through like an early acceptance honors program. What about all of your friends who were like all right senior year of high school? And you're like now, I'm going to college. I think they were bummed worked out where you find with it. Yeah. I couldn't wait to like half of senior year of high school is just waiting right? Like, he just got rid of that whole. Yeah. And was there any was it USC are bust for that year was user, busted waited. I would have also applied to like NYU and Columbia in like UCLA. Yeah. Chapman, Jake any life-changing waiting. I guess I mean, probably when we were waiting for the pilot. Yeah. Like in Hollywood. And quite as happy as Jeff story. Jeffcott aim. We got rejected from true diversity. That's good. Yeah. Are you? Are you Ruez see said, no, no, no, you show that to make a pile. Which is pretty incredible. Yeah. Yeah. It was also a nickel thing though, where you were lifted up college aged employee is. Sureness? That's why you went to USC, man. Jeff still seventeen if you can really. This guy applied to fourteen grad programs. He's waiting on the results of a life changing decision. What does any embrace it? You got three months that you can't have any control over do. Whatever you want for these three months. Yeah. Fucking ice cream with very tiny spoon, or you know, what go ham and have a big spoon. Get two scoops. That's seven flavors scoops, and then on your buddies glass sliding door, and he still doesn't know whether he's going to get it or not. So he's like this in theory an exciting time because of the possibilities fourteen grad programs. I if you are as smart as this dude seems to be applied and tried this heart and talks about how he gave something all I feel like that usually works out. He's also going for a PHD not like MD, and I feel like medic med schools probably more competitive than like, he's probably applied to very specific PHD programs that have much less smaller applicant pool. I think he should just. Rest easy, knowing he's going to get into at least a few of these. And yet, go do something awesome. Go to New Zealand or something. That's better advice than I could give because I've never really applied for anything like that or theirself Rogan. Yeah. I apply myself all the time. My God you see that. I've never seen him make a turn like that. Yeah. Application to be very kind of been poking and prodding cattle. This whole fucking our food thing. You know, the the way that you were like SRI said like heath ledger, like that's not funny. For that for Jake to hear that a huge fan. Yeah. Huge heath bar fan. And I'll tell you what if you don't get in. If you get quote, unquote, rejected come back to us because we can sell you on the fact that having a PHD in philosophy completely useless. And that might be the best thing that ever happened to. Yeah. If you get in congrats that's amazing you've been fucked otherwise. And if you don't get in Shipman who cares about philosophy? You dodged a bullet. Congrats you're not gonna spend another however long learning shit that will never be relevant or necessary can never be sad. If you struck something often pretend it didn't matter. For like, a true TV just passed on your pile. You won't be making TV show..

"But, but they're largely about making sense of the intuition that we have about what's right or wrong. Right. Where do those intuition come from in the first place, and that was really when I was trying to understand their sense of rain wrong from both philosophical and psychological. And even at neuroscience perspective. I mean, the work that I'm death known for is research using brain imaging and other methods combined with with the limousine from philosophy so trolley dilemmas when is it, okay? To children person to say five people, and and underground has some ideas about I take taking Mira science class and was reading about these moral dilemmas, and it's something clicked, right? Kind of hunt. I think that you when people say that it's wrong to push the guy off the footbridge in order to save these five people. It made sense to me that that response was coming from particular circuiting rain involving neural structures called the middle and venture Migo prefrontal cortex in in this competing response. That says, well, maybe it's better to save more lives in a different part of the brain off frontal parietal cortex the frontal parietal control network. And I while I was doing then I started a philosophy PHD finished plus PHD, but had this ecology nurse. Bubbling in my head the whole time. And then I met a then a new sake member at Princeton where I was doing my PHD in Jonathan Collins, and I came to him, and I have this idea about how I think he's moral dilemmas. Are what's going on in our heads in our brains when we're doing this you can actually test this with with with functional imaging which is very new it's nine and he'd got it and sought. It was great and said, okay, but you need to learn how to do this stuff. So while I was writing my philosophy dissertation on with minute ethics questions about the overall status. Ethics. Is there any facts in the matter of right around questions like that? I started working on this brain imaging research testing out these ideas about what's going on our head in our heads when we're thinking about moral dilemmas, and then that really took off and I stayed in cones lab for another four years and really learn how to do the research and made a little bit more progress. And then I was lucky that Harvard site department was willing to. Take a chance on a, you know, a philosopher of who'd gotten into psychology and in cognitive neuroscience of. I got a job there and set up a lab. And now I've been there for then here for about twelve years and continue to do this kind of work where I have my philosophy background be my guide in terms of what questions to ask. But then I try to get these things and get some traction using the tools of modern sign that I'm so glad you knew made a study discipline out of the the neuro anatomical imaging because it's not as simple, as, you know, looking on us, you know, people imagine it's just looking at what lights up and it's like known, right? And I hate some of these lay pup they lay books that are out there, particularly try to model addiction in love and those sorts things. Like now, this is way more you can't make those. No, no, no, no, no. We're not there yet in the FM are is, you know, neuro imaging is extremely has interpreted has been terp. It'd is anybody else material you're excited by now in there, and that sort of area of of nearly imaging and. Motivation. Well, I think that there been a few things that have happened that have made imaging or recent interesting in recent years so one and this has been around for a while people only really started to make full use of it is a multi variant methods. I mean, basically, you talked about lighting up. So what that means is you've got a region of the brain that is more active when people are doing one thing than something else that a simple kind of boring. Ample people are remembering a long string of numbers instead of shorts during of numbers support of the brain working harder is the circuit from Duprat control network. See which again is that's a network that you noticed would was making a rational computation about morality as opposed to a motion and the motion rea-, you know, in the tents reaction motioning, right?.

But I, if you make it entertaining if you make it if you make them laugh, maybe somehow that kind of puts their guard down. Do you think that that's what's going on. Oh, yeah, absolutely. I mean, I was really influenced by George Carlin and use book last word. He has a passage that will always really stuck with me that when people are, you said almost exactly that that when people are laughing, their defenses are lowered and you can plant the seed of new idea in that moment.

He has a passage that will always really stuck with me that when people are, you said almost exactly that that when people are laughing, their defenses are lowered and you can plant the seed of new idea in that moment. And that always really stuck with me as being a goal or something powerful by comedy could do fired you and that sort of Ito's definitely made its way that and everything.

Well, our segment for college humor that we ever did was about bigotry behind diamond engagement rings and how that was a marketing campaign by the beers corporation, the thirty that everyone is forgot about. And that's why we have the tradition with. That was the first one I know I really loved you for that one because I learned a little bit about that beforehand. So I learned a lot more in that video, and that was definitely one of those things that I guess whenever I ruined it for somebody, they really didn't appreciate that did were there are a lot of upset people with your first ruining of the diamond engagement ring. You know the whole idea ruining stuff is kind of a faint for comedy. You know, the actual truth was about people really like learning and it's fun to find out that everything you thought is wrong. You know, I heard a couple anecdotal account, you know vendor to say, oh, my sister is apparently really into our engagement ring. 'cause she was all the pensive about it when I showed her video, but apart from that. Yeah, I've never. I've never really gotten much about that one. Oh, beyond. Yeah, that's funny. Because when you say people enjoy learning about the thing, I, I don't know as somebody who sometimes like ruin things. I feel like people have a reaction that is people. It seems like people don't like that too much is well, let me let me say in real life when you're talking to somebody in a bar right or a party. Yeah, that's you'll get less good of a reaction. And and the reason my character recently wrote my character to always get a negative reaction to have. Everyone be annoyed by him is because that you know, sort of a comedic heightening of the reaction I get in real life. No, we hitting -ly. You know that certainly one of the perils of the of the profession when you're just going like people in person. But you know, I think because we're doing it with comedy, and we're getting the whole argument all at one and it's entertaining as well. They pushed past that initial like sort of beer grinding, like all doesn't doesn't feel like to they're really enjoying learning the information. You know, learn something that you that you the contradicts your previously held belief is definitely uncomfortable at first and it hard to go over that hump when you're win personal somebody. But once you get over it and you sort of replace their old information with a news story, that even more interesting, you'll really enjoy that. And I mean, that makes sense than it sounds like it makes it a little bit more powerful that way because people kind of have resistance to having their beliefs challenged. But I, if you make it entertaining if you make it if you make them laugh, maybe somehow that kind of puts their guard down. Do you think that that's what's going on. Oh, yeah, absolutely. I mean, I was really influenced by George Carlin and use book last word. He has a passage that will always really stuck with me that when people are, you said almost exactly that that when people are laughing, their defenses are lowered and you can plant the seed of new idea in that moment. And that always really stuck with me as being a goal or something powerful by comedy could do fired you and that sort of Ito's definitely made its way that and everything. So when you were getting into comedy, you said at that that quote stuck with you, looking to change, opinions went, was it that attracted you to comedy in the first place apart from all the other things that you might have ended up pursuing a bunch of things. You know, I, I wanted to be a, I wanna be. I wanted to go to grad school. Philosophy when I was in college, I, I really love the philosophy and sort of world of idea of that sort of thing, but I couldn't really hack it. I didn't have any grad schools and and thank God. I didn't do come out, you know, right act pension crisis philosophy. PHD might not have been remove academic job market very difficult. But one of the other that in the plywood because my college ketchup started to take off and you know, we got maybe early engine that we, we had a lot of early viral if you'd like three YouTube. So very early around five..
