“Straight to the Comments”, a new british podcast, has just been launched in the UK, with a mission to explore the interesting, sometimes disturbing world of online comments and their effects on our wider society. Hosted by social media and communications consultant Lisa Williams and psychology graduate and writer Sarah Illingworth, the podcast aims to provide a better understanding of why we become so invested in online conversations.
