The Internet has made wonderful things like our podcast possible, but what are the downsides of the world wide web?

This week we discuss the shadowy world of internet trolls and how the constant stream of negativity can have a real impact on mental health. We explore the mounting pressure from anonymous commentators as we have expanded across social media.

From icy comments to pure vitriol, we examine where these comments come from and why it's so easy to share hate on the internet. If you've ever dealt with cyberbulling, and you need to talk to someone, please reach out for help.
