Misinfo Weekly is an educational podcast for lay audiences dedicated to understanding misinformation in our time. Every week (mostly) we try to provide some perspective on current events in misinformation. The show breaks down basic and advanced concepts in mis and disinformation, as well as helps track and trace how misinformation events come to be. The show is produced by Laura Davis and the Unit for Data Science and Analytics at Arizona State University Library. Show conversations are aimed at late high school and beyond.
