Guest: Ali Mattu, Ph.D., the Science-Fiction Psychologist. Remember how the internet reacted when Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman? Ali wrote an article about it that sets the stage for this conversation. Josué and Ali discuss nerd rage, specifically of the "crazy online troll behavior" variety, what it looks like, why it happens, and how to deal with it.
