Polarized Society

Episode 15,   Dec 01, 2023, 11:23 AM

Polarization is spreading through the world wide web in the political arenas as well as in the rest of society. 
But is polarization a new thing or is it embedded in human nature as a part of a primitive survival instinct? 
When does polarization become a problem and what can we do to decrease the polarization forces embedded in social media platforms.  

This episode of the Science and Cocktails Podcast is about social pollination in the society today and before, how social media is contributing to increasing polarization, and to enlighten us, we have Chris Bail, professor at University of Duke and the director of the Polarization lab, who gave an Amazing talk at Science and Cocktails in Copenhagen.
