Episode 34: Dr. Charles Kriel and Kat Gellein Viken

Our resident fake news expert, Dr Charles Kriel, turns guest this week as he discusses his new documentary People You May Know, a joint project with his partner, Director Kat Gellein Viken. The film follows Kat and Charles on a journey of discovery from Westminster to America’s Deep South. They discover Cambridge Analytica collaborating with US churches to unleash a micro- targeting platform targeting vulnerable people – the poor, the grieving, the addicted – to enlist them into supporting far-right politics.
