    • Education

On this episode, guest Melissa Ryan discusses the work she does to combat disinformation and extremism.

Melissa Ryan has spent more than a decade working at the intersection of politics, media, culture, and technology. Today, she uses her expertise to help people, policymakers and institutions combat disinformation, extremism and online toxicity as the CEO and Chief Strategist of CARD Strategies.

Melissa became fascinated with extremism and disinformation during the 2016 U.S. elections, as she watched once-fringe extremist networks rise to prominence as they were amplified by mainstream candidates and media. She was among the first progressives to chronicle the rise of the alt-right online when she launched Ctrl Alt-Right Delete shortly after the election, which has since grown to more than 16,000 weekly readers.
