Nice: A journey into the friendzone

Word Bomb

Pippa and Karina follow this surface-level word straight into one of the darkest corners of the internet: the manosphere, complete with Nice Guys, good boys, incels, and MRAs. How did one boring, overused adjective become the ultimate red flag? "Nice" is so much more than the sum of its parts. Thank you to our guest Shelby Lorman, the artist behind the Instagram account @awardsforgoodboys and the book of the same name.
