New Podcast from NY Times: Rabbit Hole

A new series was introduced yesterday "about how the internet is changing, and how it’s changing us."

The introducing article states:
Last year, after the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand — a heinous mass murder committed by a white nationalist with ties to far-right internet groups, whose actions seemed to be calculated to produce maximum internet virality — my colleague Andy Mills and I decided to try to figure out where the internet was leading us, and what made its pull so powerful.

With the help of a small team of talented colleagues, we set out on a yearlong project to make a narrative audio series that would tell the stories of people who were shaping, and being shaped by, the internet.

The first episode is about a young man who became radical over time - as did Youtube content. It's designed as a sort of (somewhat flashy) case study.
