This week marks the one-year anniversary of Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
To mark this milestone Ali and Paul spoke to Dr Precious Chatterje Doody, an expert on Russian disinformation.
She told us how the Kremlin’s justifications for the war have evolved in the last year and explained why much of the misinformation it produces is not meant for a Western audience.
Also on episode 3 of For Fact’s Sake, we explore the increasingly prominent conspiracy theory about 15 minute cities, and in Paul’s Curiosity Corner, we discuss online claims that the EU is attempting to sneak insects into our food.
