You know her, you love her (or in the case of Elon Musk and Fox News, rabidly obsessed with her): It’s friend of the site, Taylor Lorenz, here for an all new episode of Passionfruit Presents.

The author of “Extremely Online: The Untold Story of Fame, Influence, and Power on the Internet” (on sale now!) is back with Passionfruit managing editor Drew Grant discussing the role of women in the creator ecosystem.
