    When Disinformation Targets Black Voters: Esosa Osa Explains the 2024 Disinformation Landscape

    Esosa Osa, the founder and CEO of Onyx Impact, an organization that fights the harmful information ecosystems that target Black communities, discusses how misinformation and disinformation campaigns target the Black community and voters.

She also explains the role of social media platforms, like TikTok, Facebook, and Twitter, play in helping to proliferate harmful disinformation, as well as, the role of foreign-influence campaigns, like the Russian tactics employed during the 2016 election cycle. Lastly, we discuss the role of AI and how the quickly evolving technology will make it even harder to detect, and fight disinformation.

    How Democrats Can Win Big on Immigration with Beatriz Lopez of Immigration Hub

    How Democrats Can Win Big on Immigration with Beatriz Lopez of Immigration Hub

    Beatriz Lopez, the deputy director of the Immigration Hub, an organization dedicated to advancing fair and just immigration policies, discusses the GOP's strategy of using a multi-faceted misinformation machine to fuel anti-immigration sentiment — a fear-based strategy they've invested hundreds of millions of advertising dollars in, that they hope will result in a win at the ballot box. Beatriz Lopez believes that Democrats can counter the Republican strategy, by appealing to voters' desire to end the chaos at the border, to end cruel policies, and by leaning into our shared values as Americans.

Excellent first episode with Dr. Laura Briggs

An insightful and interesting first episode. Dr. Laura Briggs' intelligence and dry wit made for great listening. Looking forward to the next episode!

Sitting in on conversations with smart women.

I love listening to smart women! Ever since the election, I've felt frustrated, and helpless. I'm one of those people who wasn't really paying attention until November. These have been good, constructive conversations. I look forward to more!
