S2 Ep1 - Where The Truth Lies The Next Billion Seconds

It’s growing increasingly difficult to know where the truth lies. We’ve gotten very good at our electronic fakery - from Photoshop and ‘Deep-Fakes’ to synthetic audio of former U.S. President Barack Obama so accurate it’s indistinguishable from the real thing. All of this feeds into a growing online community which instantly separates into tribes then tunes out any competing with a cry of “fake news!”. Series Two of The Next Billion Seconds takes a look at the intersection of technology, truth and our future, beginning with frequent guest John Allsopp, revealed in the ways he teaches his children the spirit of inquiry, to help them discover where the truth lies.
