This week's episode of Zeugma focuses on the practice of Internet trolling. Starting with a quick consideration of the complex etymology of the term, we discuss trolls mythical and real, interview trolling scholar Dr. Whitney Phillips, and get stories and thoughts from two folks with deep ties to trolling communities on Reddit and the game Eve Online.
Trigger Warning: Due to discussions of last fall's Violentacrez controversy, as well as the sexist, racist, and homophobic tropes commonplace in many trolling practices, this episode contains references to potentially disturbing subject matter.
