Becca Lewis (PhD candidate in Internet Politics, Stanford) makes us all smarter by telling us what life is like as a PhD student who exclusively studies internet culture. It's mostly good but also sometimes very bad, when that culture you research almost exclusively consists of internet nutjobs. After spending a large amount of time learning stuff, the Blocked Boys then drag Becca down into their weird corner of the internet, as the BBs go in on YouTube makeup tutorials, inspiring Kleenex, the Vancouver otter that's terrorizing botanical gardens, and Stefan decides it might finally be time to get a bidet.
