MICHAEL WHEELER [OVER PHONE]: Hello, you’ve reached Michael Wheeler’s voicemail. Please leave a message.

DAVID YEE: Hey Michael, it’s David Yee, this is my first thought. This morning I got an email from Sarah welcoming me to this, and then I got an email from you, and it read: “Try not to say anything controversial, just thoughts that support the status quo.” And obviously that’s a joke, it’s classic Wheeler, but I was still groggy and it didn’t click right away. And maybe because last week Matthew Jocelyn called me and my compatriots “parasites,” I thought, “Jesus Christ, I’m being policed by Michael Wheeler.” Which wasn’t true, but for half a second this morning, I turned you into something you weren’t because last week someone called me something I’m not.
