Social Media seems to pervade every aspect of life and often consumes many waking hours for lots of people.  Something with such a large footprint deserves a serious look.  Peter Pappas, of UP’s School of Education, has put a spotlight on the topic of where social media has taken us. Once enthusiastic about the promise of this communication tool, Pappas is a little more hesitant these days.
In this roundtable-style podcast, we bushwhack through a lot of philosophical terrain from Orwellian outcomes and conspiracy theories to Troll farms and seatbelts for Twitter.
