On this week’s podcast we are talking online scams.
Things have moved on from the generous Nigerian Prince offering to share his fortune with you, now there are lots of different ways that scammers can separate you from your money.
Ali spoke to Professor Oli Buckley, cyber security expert at the University of East Anglia, about the state of scams today, and how artificial intelligence is used by scammers to play on your deepest fears and anxieties.
Elsewhere on the podcast, Ali and Paul look at a Scottish Labour claim on child poverty, and examine the TikTok phenomenom of mouth taping.
