Facts, Falsehoods, and The Finch Podcast  

In the modern era, misinformation has run rampant. Google searches are being equated with PhD's, falsehoods can mean life and death, and the validity of science is under assault. When UGA students began The Finch podcast in Athens at the height of the pandemic, airwaves were being choked by repetitive and predictable voices; it was evident that perspectives were being left out. This 3-part class, taught by the students who propelled The Finch to international acclaim in a matter of months, will focus on reevaluating common misconceptions, adopting a multidisciplinary approach, engaging with experts, and having some fun along the way.
