In this episode:

Hosted By: James Keys & Tunde Ogunlana

Understanding that the Internet can overload you with what you want to see, and also make it impossible to avoid things you don’t want to see, James Keys and Tunde Ogunlana discuss the role the Internet research played in a tragic story of an attempted ‘freebirth’ that went wrong (01:11), the role trolling on the Internet played in the death of one of the UK’s most famous TV stars (18:54), and singer Billie Eilish’s claim that social media was ruining her life (24:32). We also consider whether black conservatives, such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas are unfairly excluded from Black History Month celebrations (31:05).
