What the heck are incels?! Incels are a group of self-identifying "involuntary celibates". Basically, they are a group of men who feel they are unable to find sexual and romantic partners.

Sounds harmless. However, this growing online culture of men are getting blamed for perpetuating violence and hatred against women. Even some men who have recently committed mass shootings and other violence are believed to be associated with the incel community. Seems like a far stretch to go from not being able to find a date to shooting up schools.

Rob and Chanel dive deep into this topic to explore the world of incels and the experience of sexual rejection.

With special guest Bryan Smith @smittyballs and Eric Chong @realericchong
