If you're the kind of person who gets a nostalgia hit listening to the sign-on sound from old AIM clients—yes, the one where the door opens—you're going to enjoy our long conversation about the recent announcement AIM will shut down later this year. Austin, Rob, and Patrick discuss the awkward teenage crushes that played out over the messaging service, before using BuzzFeed's recent piece about the origins of the alt-right website Breitbart as a means of re-examining GamerGate, three years after it all started. (Since this podcast was recorded, the VICE employee mentioned in BuzzFeed's story has been fired. Also, Austin's Internet magically turned back on.)
