"Time Crisis, back again in 2020. On today's very special episode, Jake and I unite and for the first time we talk to Chris Kaskie - a co-founder of Pitchfork music festival and the writer of the infamous Jet review. We also talk to Amy Brown, former Wendy's social media specialist, and hear about her wild ride when it came to virality and savagely clapping back. This is a 2020 Time Crisis."
