Matt Sieren, Iowa Public Radio Digital and IT manager, kicks off the conversation with the most concerning and frightening things happening on social media right now.

In 2016 many Americans were blindsided and shocked by the amount of disinformation being spread through social media. Four years later, the only thing that seems to have changed is that the people and organizations spreading disinformation, many of them foreign actors, have gotten more sophisticated and harder to spot.

On this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe and her guests talk about how to responsibly, and safely, navigate social media in this moment, how to protect yourself and others from misinformation and how to communicate with people whose opinions differ from your own.

Guests:

· Matt Sieren, Digital/IT manager, Iowa Public Radio

· Zlatan Krizan, professor of psychology, Iowa State University

· Andrea Charlow, professor of law, Drake University
