Also, be sure to listen to the NLP podcast Is that a fact? In their second season, podcasters explore the origins of false narratives and the harm they cause: “We know that sharing misinformation is misleading and leaves people poorly informed. Still, we wanted to go deeper and explore how fictional information starts and then bubbles to the surface to misdirect the country’s civic and cultural discourse.”

Podcasters explore false narratives about the country’s most important issues and events, including the 9/111 terrorist attacks, school shootings, immigration, political parties, and more.
