On episode 9 of the For Fact’s Sake podcast, Ali spoke to Sophie Maddocks, a researcher and digital rights advocate from the University of Pennsylvania, about the rise of so-called ‘deepfake’ pornography.

Sophie explained the technology behind deepfake porn, how accessible it is, why politicians have not tackled the issue, and the harms caused by image based sexual abuse.

Also on this week’s pod, Ali explains misleading images of crowd sizes at the King’s coronation and on Paul’s Curiosity Corner we discuss a Telegraph column which attacked the foundations of the fact checking profession.
