Misinformation, Media Literacy and Listening to People Who Disagree

About This Episode

Join us this week for a discussion with Brian Knappenberger, a producer and director renowned for such documentaries as Web of Make Believe: Death, Lies and the Internet, The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz, We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists, and Turning Point: 9/11, to name a few. He shares insights from his recent documentary series Web of Make Believe and also  discusses the trajectory of misinformation through a lens from the 2016 election forward.

We explore themes around technology innovation and how society adapts in both positive and negative ways – and how it presents opportunities for cyber attackers to exploit cracks in the system for financial gain. And we discuss the impact of today’s always-on/always connected world whereas Marshall McLuhan once observed has become “quite as imperceptible to us as water is to fish.”
