Episode 5: More fake news

We did a shorter follow up episode to continue the conversation we began in Episode 4 about fake news. This time, we talk about “Post-Post Truth”, a post by Barbara Fister from Inside Higher Ed. We dig a little deeper into what is meant by “fake news,” discuss the challenges of teaching about authority, and think about who or what might play a role in addressing these challenges.
