On this week's podcast, we take a look at social media platform Twitter and the impact of Elon Musk's controversial takeover.

Ali and Paul talk to Vice disinformation reporter David Gilbert about how Musk's stewardship has led to increasing far right and anti-semitic presence on the platform, where Twitter's content moderation has failed, and whether Musk enables far right and conspiracy theories in his tweets.

Elsewhere on For Fact's Sake, we look into the controversy around highly protected marine areas (HPMAs), and assess some inaccurate reporting of Sadiq Khan's recently revealed health scare.
