What is The Inoculation?

Our mission is to explore the intersection of anti-vaccine beliefs, technology, and politics. We report on how misinformation, disinformation, and fake news are constructed and how they spread, and how disinformation is changing our society.  We talk to researchers to find out how serious the threat of disinformation is, and how politics and politicians use antivaxx-views to score points with voters. We look for examples of people who successfully combat misinformation.

The show is hosted by Eva von Schaper and Daiva Repeckaite, journalists with two decades of reporting experience between them. You can sign up for our weekly newsletter, Inoculated, at www.theinoculation.com. Transcripts are available at www.theinoculation.com.

The site hosts our podcast, The Inoculation, and our newsletter, Inoculated. Both are biweekly.
