Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, psychologist and Professor of Psychology at Toronto University, accidentally broadcasted himself browsing the internet and conversing with his wife in an unintended livestream.

Alongside Dr. Peterson’s work in academia, where he studies multiple facets of psychology, he is also known for his critique of political correctness, gender pay gaps, and climate change.

Dr. Peterson popped up in his followers’ feeds during a surprise livestream, where even he didn’t know he was going live.

The accidental broadcast began with Peterson appearing to check out his teeth for any leftover bits of food, then settling back into his chair to browse the internet. Viewers can gather that he was staying up to date on political news from the stream’s audio.

Peterson’s wife, Tammy Roberts, appeared two minutes and thirty seconds into the stream, seemingly returning home from work.

Tammy approached her husband to show him a news article, laughingly saying that it would “make him mad.” The article in question was from the Global News, titled, “Doug Ford is returning Ontario to a 1998 sex-ed curriculum.”

Roberts and Peterson didn’t appear to be fans of the piece, with Peterson saying, “Fuck you, you fucking pricks,” in response to the one teacher’s view of gender-identity education as being a human rights issue. “I really like the little graph at the end,” he said in reference to a graph showing the number of times certain keywords were used between 1998 and 2015 sex ed curricula.

Peterson continued streaming for a few more minutes, blissfully ignorant of his online presence. He then appeared to take notice of this and immediately went offline, saying, “I’m livestreaming.”

Dr. Peterson’s everyday interaction with his wife (thought to be out of the public eye) shows a private side of the psychologist. Peterson has since deleted the stream, but thanks to the never-ending efforts of the internet, the clip is available for all to see.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
