    The Truth Illusion

    The Truth Illusion

    ‘The Truth Illusion’ explores one of the most profound questions that philosophers through the ages have tried to answer. What can we prove to be the truth?

    In today's deeply divided societies, is it even possible for people to agree on a common ‘reality’?

    Al Jazeera investigates how those deepening divisions began and how they have eroded faith in authority – creating conspiracy theories and ‘alternative facts’.

    Degrees of Abuse: The Impact

    When Al Jazeera's I-Unit released its investigation into sexual misconduct against women at British Universities in late 2021, it created a storm on social media. But after the revelations, has anything changed?

    In this episode, Degrees of Abuse: The Impact, we find out what’s happened to the four male academics accused of abuse. We also hear from women in each case about how it felt to finally hear the names made public and what kind of response they've received.

    Degrees of Abuse: Part 5: ‘He had deliberately obscured who he was’

As good as it gets

Investigative journalism at it’s finest from a perspective that is new to me but insightful and truly top notch!

2 episodes in and wanting more

Really great information and well produced. The story sheds a light on something I was totally unaware of.

I’ve only listened to the first two episodes and eagerly waiting for the final 2 parts of the series. Keep up the good work! Hope there’s plenty more where this came from.

Real journalism

Refreshing to hear authentic journalism for the sake of the craft—to illuminate the shadowy spaces and bring understanding and awareness to the mind. Al Jazeera consistently delivers and this new podcast is enjoyable, and I’m looking forward to future episodes.
