Episode 8 – Negativity, Criticism, and Trolling

Episode 8 – This week on Makers’ Hustle: Join Amy, Bill, and Jeff as they discuss trolling, negativity, criticism, and how to tell the difference. Amy talks about her past experience on the receiving end of a sustained online harassment campaign against Skepchick and Rebecca Watson. Jeff gets real on us (and it’s great). Bill wonders what’s wrong with people.

Patreon supporters for this episode include Scott Haun and Jim Beshears — thanks guys!

We also answer a question from Marc Spagnuolo (The Wood Whisperer) about being told to get a “thicker skin.”
