Riddell's response, Lunduke bemusedly reports (written response in transcribed dialect? or an oral retort?), was: "awa an boil yer heid ye twonkle". I've never found what a twonkle is, although there's a twonk in urban dictionary, and there is of course the everyone's favorite twat; but yeah, I can see why he would say something like that about Bryan.
Anyway, the words мудозвон and пиздобол come to mind when I see Dave Rubin. I mentally contrast him with Joe Rogan then. What Joe has going for him is authenticity. He sounds like a regular guy, sometimes maybe not very bright, sometimes surprisingly astute; but he is (or at least comes off as) real and earnest. Dave, in contrast, is a sleazeball. Many of his questions are fake — he sometimes would even supply a metacommentary on what a softball he is serving to his interviewee. He has that air of self-important vanity around him ("Don't burn this book", right). He just generally oozes with slime — maybe not so bad as a host on a big news channel, but enough. I did mention how flabbergasted I was to discover that locals.com seems to be taking off. Because пиздоболы don't usually bear fruit.
