EP. 136 — I Don’t Mean To Scare You with Jena Friedman

There’s a lot of misinformation on the Internet and when it lands the wrong hands, it can have dangerous consequences… as we’ve seen with Pizzagate and the anti-vax movement and time and time again in this post-reality, dystopian moment. I Don’t Mean to Scare You is a podcast where I talk to people who know what they’re talking about—experts on some of the scariest topics out there, to get the facts and help us all feel a little less afraid or at least less alone in the things we should most definitely be afraid of.
