Every time Keith's internet dropped the episode went up in quality. Even as Chemda was asking similar questions it seemed Julia responded with less defensiveness. When Julia said earlier she had done an interview with a man who had asked questions she found invasive it sort of clicked with me. She didn't trust Keith and his male energy IMO.

I watched the documentary Disclosure on Netflix and they really get into a lot of these questions on there. It was eye opening. Definitely changed the way I view asking someone about gender reassignment surgery and what not.

I think it was because it's directed and starring trans-people. So it's like the n-word. Me and my wife may use it among ourselves but if some white person came in the house like "What's up my niggas?" it wouldn't be the same.

That's how it came across to me. Like this documentary is for educating people but that doesn't mean when you see Laverne Cox in person you can just run up on her and ask her about her gender reassignment surgery. Or even if she's a guest on your show she might feel offended by you asking.

At least that's how I took it.

Julia's publicist should have sent over a list of questions or subject matters that were off the table to Keith and Chemda. That would have also alerted Keith and Chemda that maybe this guest wouldn't be a good fit for the show. Rod nailed it when he said in Last Week that when he's asked to be on a different podcast, he listens to some of their episodes to see if it's a good fit for his brand and has found several where it clearly was not. Neither Julia or her publicist did their homework, while Keith and Chemda clearly did.

THE NERVE of her publicist sending that email, SHE should be fired for not doing HER homework and listening AS WELL.

I agree completely and think this is it.

What I find odd is that Chemda asked VERY similar questions and Julia didn't get offended. At least she didn't seem to be. I really think she just did not fuck with Keith as the "bad cop" interviewer. Keith dropped off the line and it was like "Boom! Let's talk about surgery, death and cancer." Keith's internet comes back and it's like "Oh no not this guy again!"

Keith also diffuses tension with humor a lot. And he's not afraid of the uncomfortableness (not a word) that comes with that. And to some people that feels like hostility or bullying. We've listened to thousands of episodes of Keith and know the deal. But if someone isn't a fan or hasn't listened before I can see how they'd take it as hostility.

It's really just a shame. I haven't gotten to the letter her publicist wrote yet. I'm listening to that episode now.

What? It's my week off I'm not allowed to listen later than everyone else? Leave me alone!

I think she felt safe with Chemda from the beginning and even more when she heard that Chemda was married to a trans man.
It was sign for her that Chemda learned about trans issues and respected trans people.
We the listeners know Keith also does! But there is still his ( beautiful) straight white guy face.

If you are going to ask questions about genitalia, you have to lead with your own dick pic. Quid pro quo. It's only polite.
