The following is based on a video that my favorite Youtuber, Olly of Philosophy Tube, recently did.

Yes, I’m on Reddit. Yes, I’m a bit ashamed. I like to feebly remind folks that Serena Williams’ (husband) invented Reddit, so it can’t be all bad! I originally joined it a few years ago to follow the conversation surrounding my favorite TV show, and one of the only I watch, Survivor. I recently used it…
