Our online life is real life. We walk, talk, work, LOL and even love on the Internet – but we don’t always treat it like real life. Host Manoush Zomorodi explores this disconnect with stories from the wilds of the Web, and gets to the bottom of online issues that affect us all. Whether it’s privacy breaches, closed platforms, hacking, fake news, or cyber bullying, we the people have the power to change the course of the Internet, keeping it ethical, safe, weird, and wonderful for everyone. IRL is an original podcast from Firefox, the tech company backed by Mozilla that believes privacy isn’t a policy. It’s a right.

Excellent podcast

While I shy away from social media and some parts of the internet, this excellently produced and presented podcast shows me what is going on, and gives some great stories to illustrate the issues with using the internet In Real Life. The other nice thing is that the production team reach outside the US to broaden their views (and appeal).

Keep up the good work!

unbearable

This was so full of meaningless chat and waffle that I only managed 2 minutes. It appeared that she didn't have enough material for a full show, so used a lot of padding. It may get better later on, (the other reviews are stratospheric - unwarrantably in my view) so I guess it must have some kernels of good information. I thought it was going to be more like a radio TED talk: concise and informative. It wasn't.

If you like a sweet American drawly voice meandering on about not much, this is for you. I shall seek elsewhere for information about how to keep myself safe online. (Do tell me if I missed the point and it wasn't about that.)
