The Tense Social Media Climate Will Not Get Better After The 2020 Election
In 2016 many Americans were blindsided and shocked by the amount of disinformation being spread through social media.

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.
