Inquiry: Dahlia Schweitzer & Siva Vaidhyanathan
Sunday, July 14th – 9:00 pm
Movies and television shows about outbreaks of contagious diseases and plagues of zombies are common. But why are these stories so popular? Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with DAHLIA SCHWEITZER, an adjunct professor at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Her new book unearths the “outbreak narrative”: GOING VIRAL: ZOMBIES, VIRUSES, AND THE END OF THE WORLD.

Did Facebook help Trump get elected? Facebook may seem an innocent way to pass some time, but tonight’s guest on Inquiry declares Facebook: “too big to govern, and we are victims of its success.” Facebook is great at motivation but it’s terrible for deliberating, which is the cornerstone of all democracies. Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with SIVA VAIDHYANATHAN. He is the Robertson Professor of Media Studies and Director of the Center for Media and Citizenship at the University of Virginia. His new book is ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA: HOW FACEBOOK DISCONNECTS US AND UNDERMINES DEMOCRACY.

Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al is joined by Patrice Onwuka, a senior policy analyst at the Independent Women’s Forum in Washington D.C. As a young African American woman, her viewpoint is quite intriguing.
