In Episode 4, we examine social media, a crucial component of the Nexus. We talk about our own relationships with social media and look at how it functions as an expression, and a tool, of neoliberal capitalism. We discuss how social media affects our bodies and our social behaviour, as well as its impact on the production of truth. Finally, we ask some hard-hitting questions: could it be that Clementine Morrigan is actually a member of QAnon? (QAnon has members, right?)
