    The internet is filled with misleading headlines, fake news, and clickbait. It wasn't always this way, or at least it wasn't always this bad. So why did your YouTube subscription box suddenly break? Why did your Facebook news feed stop showing you pictures of your friends? Why is the world turning into a dumpster fire?

    In this episode, we consider how the network effect, design, and algorithms are destroying the truth.

    Special thanks to Taha Khan for script revision.
