Eighty years ago, radio listeners in the U.S. heard The War of the Worlds broadcast, an incident that sparked debate about the potential for misinformation in mass media. On this special episode, we report from the Misinformation Solutions Forum, an interdisciplinary workshop held in 2018 at the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C., with support from the Rita Allen Foundation. Additional support for this episode was provided by Craig Newmark Philanthropies.
