Episode details

How should we refer to the problem of information overload? Should we take a health ‘frame’ and speak of ‘information pollution’? We talk through various options.

We also have our second guest on the podcast! Sophie Zhang, a former Facebook employee who turned into a whistleblower talks, us through the term IT Cell: what it means, why living in a world governed by them is dangerous, and how to recognise them.

We round up the episode with a brief reference to two more words starting with I: Identity and Intersectionality.
