Ep 75 Can Democracy Survive Social Media

House of Commons Ethics and Privacy Committee co-chair Nathaniel Erskine-Smith took time out of a jammed schedule to talk to Stephanie and Craig about the Committee’s December 2018 report: Democracy Under Threat: Risks and Solutions in the Era of Disinformation and Data Monopoly. We talk about Facebook and the Cambridge Analytica and AIQ scandal, privacy and political parties, foreign electoral interference and the way forward in addressing social media companies and their effect on democracies. Thanks to Nate for coming on the show.
