Poynter launching podcast about fact checking and misinformation

Poynter: “Over the next three weeks, the International Fact-Checking Network is releasing a limited-run podcast about fact-checking and fake news. In each of the three episodes, we talk to fact-checkers, journalists and experts around the world to try and answer one big question about the industry. In the first episode, we talk to Amy Sippitt of Full Fact and Brendan Nyhan of the University of Michigan about the audience for fact-checking: who reads it, who fact-checkers write for and who needs fact checks the most. Find that episode later this week on our website and wherever you get your podcasts. In the second and third episodes, we will speak to reporters and academics about how to avoid amplifying conspiracies while debunking them and whether or not fact-checking can scale to misinformation on the internet. Those episodes will be released on Wednesday, Dec. 12 and Wednesday, Dec. 19. Sign up for our newsletter to get them in your inbox every week…”
