S3:E1 - Trump De-platformed, Parler Dropped, an ANTIFA Conspiracy, and Virtual CES
In this episode, we talk about the mass indefinite ban of Trump on social media platforms, and AWS and the Google and Apple App Stores dropping Parler in the aftermath of the US Capitol’s siege by Trump supporters. Then we chat with Dave Gershgorn, senior writer at OneZero at Medium, who covers AI and its effects on society, about the conspiracy theory that antifa were embedded in the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol building. Finally, we speak with Monica Chin, writer at the Verge, about this year’s virtual Consumer Electronics Show.
