"Downward Viral" with Chloe Maxmin

In This Episode

Erin Ryan and Alyssa Mastromonaco shoutout Lizzo’s crystal flute skills before getting into the news: the aftermath of Mahsa Amini’s death, the election of Italy’s brand new lady fascist and state-level lies and secrets that will make you shake your damn head. Then, Michaela Watkins and Julissa Arce join to talk about the intersection of misogyny and disinformation, inspired by Don’t Worry Darling and the pervasion of Russian bots online. Finally, a balanced ending: Sani-Petty.
