Kaj Larsen is a journalist, US Navy Seal and Harvard graduate. He’s worked for Vice News, CNN, NowThis News and Current TV. He’s also one of the kindest, smartest and most curious people I know. Kaj and I discuss the fallacy of identity politics, his experience of being accused during the #metoo movement, the way culture forces us to compartmentalize our identity, the dangers of irresponsible journalism + the importance of being an informed consumer of media & embracing our collective, human experience as opposed to falling into the spoon-fed traps of fear, demonization and cancel-culture.
