Big Tech's threat to democracy Nordic Talks

    • Society & Culture

Do tech giants like Google, Apple or Facebook have too much power? They gather enormous amounts of information about us, which is often sold and distributed for commercial purposes. And their platforms are used by hate campaigns and for sharing disinformation in a way that many people believe is putting severe pressure on democracy as we know it. In this episode we hear how the Nordic countries have become a high-profile battlefield in the defining power struggle of our digital age and ask what can be done to protect our rights as citizens.

You will meet the leading international tech-professor, Shoshana Zuboff, EU Commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, and president of the Union of Journalists in Finland, Hanne Aho.
