The Immersionist was a pitched documentary series for Current TV starring Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes. Current intended to start a long-term partnership with Vice reporting on esoteric and under-reported subjects. While received very positively, the president of programming at Current TV had issues with the pilot episode and axed the project. Two years later, Current TV was off the air, and Vice Media launched independently. Vice has won multiple Emmys and changed the landscape of documentary filmmaking, especially among the millennial demographic. This episode is a peek at an alternate reality, where one short-sighted corporate idiot doesn't fuck up an opportunity.

PS: The worst book I've ever read is "Merchants of Truth" by Jill Abramson. Check the "Get Off My Lawn" podcast to hear why.
