In the first special guest episode of The 9pm Edict autumn series we’re joined by evelyn douek, lecturer on law and a doctoral candidate at the Harvard Law School, and co-host of the Lawfare podcast Arbiters of Truth.

We talk about all manner of things connected with the online information ecosystem, including the lack of transparency at the major platforms like Facebook and Twitter, the war in Ukraine, Russian trolls, furries, the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, some Australian politics, unicorns, and how everything is a content moderation issue.
