Oral History of the Blogosphere Part 8: Mickey Kaus


Yesterday afternoon Mickey Kaus graciously joined Scott and me to discuss his role in the early history of the Blogosphere. We talked about:

  • How one defines the Golden Age of the Blogosphere
  • The origins of 90s-era neoliberalism
  • The Great Partition of Left from Right Blogistan
  • “Why does everyone on the Left hate me?”
  • A Paean to JD Vance
  • The decision to run for Senate
  • The Tucker Carlson Incident
  • The politics of anti-civility
  • The Ezra Klein Incident
  • The Blogosphere was not written in stone
  • The Substack is the Post-Blog

That a man who once topped LGM’s Enemies List could join us for a podcast… It was an absolutely fantastic conversation that you should listen to, and I want to thank Mickey for making a critical contribution to our series.

The LGM podcast is now available from a variety of corporate overlords, so please perform Freedom by making your consumer choice. We would very much appreciate reviews, whether of the thoughtful written variety or just by clicking on the appropriate star.
