From the local county councils in Ireland to the Indonesian Presidency, seems like everyone around the world is hitting the voting booth. This week Steve and Richie bring you the good, the bad, and the bizarre in a special election roundup.
Misinformation, excessive content, and questionable algorithms. These scary words are the harbingers of a scary problem: a failing news system. It’s so scary, in fact, that Steve and Richie needed an adult to help them be brave boys and show them how it can be fixed. Enter Mark Little, journalist, entrepreneur, and all round great guy.
Could the current digital revolution mean the end of our fragile democratic system? Is our political free will being eroded way by nefarious and biased entities? Has Richie successfully replaced Steve with a Google Home Assistant? We discuss these, and other equally harrowing topics, with author Jamie Bartlett.
