Summary

In this podcast, you get a sense of who Paul is, and why he is the way he is. Paul and Jocelyn talk about deviating from the norm, and about how Paul prefers to be an honest asshole over a polite sugar-coater. Hey, fair enough - as Paul points out, some of the most polite people can stir the most trouble up. They go on to discuss examples in Reddit, where a lot of Paul-bashing goes on, indicative of people's resentment to someone who is obviously in charge.

The irony? The Paul-bashing is actually helping to promote Permies. Booyah.
