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

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.
