Episode 3: Going Rogue

May 06, 2017, 12:51 PM

Secret messages and subversive communication are nothing new, but when social media gets added to the mix things get interesting. Toby and Meg get help understanding this phenomenon from Mark S. Luckie, the former head of media for Reddit and, before that, manager of journalism and media for Twitter. They discuss the real-life rise of rogue and alt Twitter accounts, plus how Toby uses secret messages in his own novels. Also: The beginning of what's sure to be a long and ongoing conversation about The Handmaid's Tale and what happened when a marketing campaign for Amazon's Man in the High Castle went just a little sideways. #handmaidstale #resistanceradio #altgov

P.S. Mark Luckie has a really cool new project underway. Check it out at souledoutcinema.com.
