Just a couple of weeks ago, Kyle sat down with Jordan Peterson for a lively, wide-ranging, and often contentious debate, touching on Peterson’s view of Marxism, his stance on universal healthcare and the broader concept of “rights,” and his controversial attacks on transgender people’s transitions. At this point, even in circles that were formed through mutual respect and excitement for Peterson’s work and politics, friction and even fissures are emerging: some of his die-hard fans find themselves less aligned with his political message, though they’re still pulled to his teachings on psychology. And many are becoming more vocally critical as their differences with the political commentator grow.
Sitch and Adam (of the Sitch & Adam Show) fit that last description. Through their channel, they share their political perspective as self-described “enlightened centrists” — a category that, for them, pulls together a number of stances from across the political spectrum. They’re supporters of Modern Monetary Theory; they’ve made a number of videos challenging “woke culture”; and their channel regularly takes on contemporary debates in pop culture and independent media. And their content offers both support and, more recently, critique of Peterson’s political commentary. They’re joining Kyle for Episode 84 of Krystal Kyle & Friends to take us through their own political journeys, their assessment of where Peterson’s analysis is headed (and whether it was always going that way), and how their channel — alongside their own views — has evolved within a quickly changing political landscape.
