The Modern Mann
Don't Google Me
Guy Babcock is not a paedophile. He is not a sociopath, or a racist, or a ‘deadbeat’. He has not served time in prison.
And yet, if you search his name online, you get a very different impression: hundreds of posts, smearing his reputation, all over the internet.
In this interview with Olly, Guy explains why - despite a court ruling against the person ruining his reputation - these posts live on.He recalls the terrifying day he realised his name was being dragged through the mud, and explains how he came to understand who was behind the damaging slurs.
Meanwhile, in the Zeitgeist, Alix Fox posits her theory that ‘immersive scent experiences’ are about to be the next big trend.
With the help of scent designer Tasha Marks, Olly and Alix test out some scents currently on show at the Museum of Docklands and the Wellcome Trust; muse on how difficult it is to describe a smell; and anticipate a world of VR smellathons.
Elsewhere, in the Foxhole, Alix looks into erectile dysfunction - an issue believed to affect over four million men in Britain, a surprisingly large segment of whom are not yet 40. The causes of E.D. can include smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol & depression and, although there are numerous pills on the market, they’re actually unsuitable for around 40% of sufferers.
This month’s Foxhole is brought to you by MAC Clinical Research, who are conducting two clinical trials to evaluate potential new treatments for those living with Erectile Dysfunction, and are looking for volunteers to take part. Up to £690 and reasonable travel expenses are included. To find out more click here.
Finally, our record of the month is the lively and infectious ‘Wake Me Up’ from FOALS, who make walking through fire sound like a LOT of fun.
