For Fact’s Sake podcast: Why is deepfake porn so harmful?

On episode 9 of the For Fact’s Sake podcast, Ali spoke to Sophie Maddocks, a researcher and digital rights advocate from the University of Pennsylvania, about the rise of so-called ‘deepfake’ pornography. 

Sophie explained the technology behind deepfake porn, how accessible it is, why politicians have not tackled the issue, and the harms caused by image-based sexual abuse. 

Also on this week’s pod, Ali explains misleading images of crowd sizes at the King’s coronation and on Paul’s Curiosity Corner we discuss a Telegraph column which attacked the foundations of the fact checking profession.
