Isolate Free Infodemics

This week’s episode features Kam Raslan, Dr Ann Lee and Zan Azlee. Kam thinks he is made for isolation but realises he needs human contact after all. This MCO, everyone is experiencing different isolation situation, thus the trio shares what they’ve learned about themselves during this period. Dr Ann continues with the topic on paradigms of freedom of expression after her research involvement with reformARTsi. Where is Malaysia in this context? Finally, Zan Azlee shares a new vocabulary – infodemics. This comes after noticing the amount of unfiltered information being sent on Whatsapp groups is at an all-time high during this pandemic. How do we check the credibility of news?
