What a Creep

“Dilbert” is a comic strip about office drone Dilbert and his dog Dogbert. It’s about office culture, micromanaging bosses and annoying coworkers, and it's created by Scott Adams. You’d think that the creator of Dilbert would be on the side of workers. Unfortunately, Scott Adams is just another rich jerk who doesn’t want to pay his fair share in taxes. Oh, he’s also a big believer in the men’s rights movement.

Jian Ghomeshi

 

Jian Ghomeshi was once a superstar in Canada. He was in a popular band in the 90s that was nominated for Juno Awards and then as a CBC TV & Radio presenter. His talk show “Q with Jian Ghomeshi” was a huge hit across Canada airing twice per day with a popular YouTube channel and it aired on over 170 public radio stations at its peak between 2007-2014.

Then he was accused of sexual assault and battery losing his big gig and being a precursor to the string of men who would be indicted in the #MeToo movement that began in 2017. He tried to reshape his narrative with a factually challenged essay in 2018 which served to show he really hadn’t learned any lessons at all.

Then we talk about a Bay Area broadcaster who ISN”T a Creep!
