This edition of our Heads Apart? podcast asks if we should be worried about social media, particularly the effect it is having on young people?  We explore and discuss the impact of social media on young people, the role that the law can play, and where the line between parental responsibility and the obligations of social media companies lies. We are joined by Anne Longfield OBE, Children’s Commissioner for England, and Professor Andy Phippen, Professor of Digital Rights at the University of Bournemouth.

Political analysis today can be shouty and superficial, with people shaming and stereotyping those who disagree with them. We take a different approach. Our podcast brings together people with different views to engage in respectful, thoughtful and detailed discussion on major political and cultural issues.
