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.

Thank you to our guest Shelby Lorman, the artist behind the Instagram account @awardsforgoodboys and the book of the same name.
