Part 1: Fake-Ass Inter­net

Some­thing like the half of all activ­i­ty on the inter­net is fake. Yes, there are bots. But there are also fake web­sites that cater to bots. And then there are the ways real peo­ple adjust their behav­iour to try to game the bots. Where does this leave the idyl­lic inter­net we were promised?

For­mer Gawk­er EIC and cur­rent New York Mag­a­zine writer Max Read tells us how what’s fake infects what’s real. Read his piece How Much of the Inter­net is Fake? Turns Out, a Lot of It, Actu­al­ly.”

Part 2: A Baby Coun­try In Diapers

Is rec­on­cil­i­a­tion still a pos­si­bil­i­ty when the Cana­di­an gov­ern­ment march­es armed police onto Indige­nous land? It’s time for Cana­da to grow up.

Jesse Wente co-hosts.
