Episode 53: Age of the ‘Uncensored’ with Gao Phalaetsile

On our last episode for 2021, we explore the politics of being “uncensored and raw” creators and the subsequent effects this has on audiences when not done responsibly with journalist and feminist Gaopalelwe Phalaetsile. Gao talks us through the misconceptions of free speech and how creators (podcasters, youtubers and more) on unregulated platforms have hierachised the idea of being “real” as an excuse to be problematic, further enabling harmful perspectives.

You can follow Gao on Twitter @Gao_Phala and on Insta @mommy_feminist. Check out Gao’s YouTube Channel as well.
