11. Faux

In this episode of Familiar Shapes, we dig into the very heart of this entire series: misinformation. What exactly is it? How do we distinguish it from true information? And how is dangerous, false information spread on social media? 

In this episode, Heather Freeman interviews:

David Rand, Associate Professor of Management Science and Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT;

Tim Weninger Associate Professor in Computer Science at the University of Notre Dame;

Samuel Woolley Assistant Professor of Journalism at the University of Austin at Texas.

Sound Design by UNC Charlotte Digital Media BFA Student Charlie A. Franco. (Great work, Charlie!)

Additional sounds from Freesound.org, ccMixter, Free Music Archive.
