Is Banning the Way to Go?

For my Censorship Analysis Podcast #2, I decided to talk about why I think individual social media sites banning/blocking content, and users is an ineffective way to censor social media in the grand scheme of things.

So with that being said, I started off my podcast by giving a definition of Internet censorship and by talking about what banning/ blocking content on individual social media platforms really entails. I then talked about the specific reasons I felt banning as a way to censor social media is ineffective and then, finished off by mentioning two potential solutions to possibly make the situation somewhat better.

Here is my Podcast:
