About This Episode

 

Neil deGrasse Tyson explores the information age with two of its digital elite: Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington and BuzzMachine’s Jeff Jarvis. Learn how The Huffington Post helped elevate and legitimize blogging, and whether blogging and aggregation should even be considered news. Find out whether modern journalism can thrive in a “post-Gutenberg era” where fragmentation has replaced mass. You’ll hear a spirited in-studio discussion between Neil, Jeff and co-host Chuck Nice about trust, bias, and bubbles of reinforced narrative in the world of online media. Explore “Godwin’s Law” – that given enough time, any chat thread will end up with a reference to Hitler or the Nazis – and find out why “Don’t Feed the Trolls” is everyone’s responsibility. Plus, Arianna explains the role of science and religion in her life and in HuffPo’s science section, and Bill Nye shares about sharing.
