Will the 2020 race be lost or won on social media? And what is the future role of traditional forms of media in politics and elections? Claire McFarland was previously an assistant secretary for digital economy policy and strategy with the Australian government, and has worked in digital innovation for companies like Telstra and Fairfax Media, having started her career with Australia’s first internet service provider, Ozemail. She joins the podcast this week to detail the demands for tech leaders to be held accountable for what's hosted on their platforms and looks ahead to a post-Trump media climate.
