The involuntary celibate community (aka ‘incels’) are often thought to be rightwing, white supremacist, and prone to violence. But how much of that is true?

Ash Sarkar is joined by William Costello - a researcher whose work focuses on the psychology of incels - to discuss what we get wrong about incels, what incels get wrong about women, and the catastrophe that is modern dating culture.

    This is a very thoughtful discussion of “incels” and the unique challenges men face today.

    It addresses male loneliness and the colossal changes in society—in terms of economics and sexuality—that have greatly affected men over the last few generations.

    It also highlights many of the ways in which incel identity is misunderstood, presenting the phenomenon in a wider context—allowing space for greater understanding and empathy.
