For our 11th episode, we are joined by prominent conservative activist Kassy Dillon, who is the founder of Lone Conservative, a right-wing outlet curated by conservative college students. She is a senior at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. She is a regular contributor to Campus ReformThe Hill, the Daily Wire, and has appeared on Fox News, discussing issues surrounding free speech and cultural issues on college campuses.

Dillon rose to fame in 2016 when she filmed a student, nicknamed “Trigglypuff,” loudly interrupting and berating feminist scholar Christina Hoff Sommers and other guests at a panel at the University of Massachusetts. The video went viral and got millions views on YouTube.

Topics included her just-visit to the White House, campus hysteria, and more.
