Episode 51: Fighting The Infodemic (ft. Science Sam)

Season 1, Ep. 51

For more than 18 months, the global COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost every part of society. And with more and more data being shared by the minute, we've become swamped with information - and that's not a good thing right now.


So to learn more about the "infodemic", we're joined by Samantha Yammine (Canada's favourite science communicator/neuroscientist/podcast fan) to chat about how compassion leads the way in the fight against disinformation, super secret blacklists, and why hot-takes & clout-chasing can screw things up for everyone.
