Yahoo News launching podcast on politics and technology
Yahoo News is starting a weekly podcast called “Bots & Ballots” that will explore the intersection of politics and technology.
A new episode will be released every Wednesday, starting tomorrow.
The first episode will feature Samuel Woolley, research director of the DigIntel Lab at the Institute for the Future, discussing what can be done to prevent bots from influencing the 2018 elections.
“Bots & Ballots” is hosted by Grant Burningham, former technology editor for Newsweek, who has worked for The New York Times, and NPR affiliate KUER.
In addition, his writing has appeared in the International Herald Tribune, Quartz, and the BBC.
