This is one of several to come supplemental podcasts, i.e. short podcasts, that will talk on a subject and often include visual components I have created as well.
The artist behind the “avatar” version of me you are about to see is my friend David Andrews.
This particular supplemental podcast aims at getting in and looking at the misconceptions of debate in the social media world that tends to dominate our culture these days. Is there room for discussion or debate when it feels like everyone is either on one side or another? I think there is and I think understanding what the social media environment looks like is important.
The actual podcast is both a read through the sequential narrative below as well as a audio annotation of it too.
