Dart Against Humanity Ep. 22: Purists, Snobs & Elitists

9/19/2018
More
On today's episode of Dart Against Humanity I discuss deconstructing the idea of being an expert vs. being a purist, snob or an elitist which actually have negative connotations in my mind. They're often dismissive of things or close minded which, in turn, stunts your ability to learn and limits your opportunity for growth. I then discuss LL Cool J's Rap career, the phenomenon of the "tap out", why I fell out with Keith Nelson Jr. and more talk about the Red Sox.
