The disinformation attack on the 2020 election has already begun, explains today's guest Melissa Ryan. Melissa is an old friend who is one of America's top experts on extremism and disinformation, particularly as it pertains to targeting the US elections. As part of a larger discussion with us about 2020, Melissa explains how online extremists are already having an impact in the Democratic primaries by, incredibly, supporting the campaign of tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang by helping him qualify for the debates. We also have a short discussion about Julian Assange's arrest. Melissa is fascinating, and knows her stuff. Hope you enjoy.
