Tai Asks Why

28 EpisodesProduced by CBC Podcasts and TRAX from PRXWebsite

Tai Poole is trying to find answers to life's biggest questions. What happens after we die? What’s happening in my teen brain? How can we fix climate change? He may not solve them all, but give him a break ... he's only 14 years old

27:35

How do I know what’s true on the internet?

It’s easier than ever to be bamboozled by bad information. Tai and his friends are no exception—even smarty pants like them fall for things online. In this episode, Tai tries to figure out how to spot misinformation and how to stop it from spreading.

This week Tai spoke with:

  • Andrea Bellemare, a CBC journalist who specializes in covering disinformation

  • Seema Yasmin, disease expert

  • Jimmeka Anderson, media literacy expert and creator of I Am Not the Media
