Limits of freedom of expression and hate speech are topics of fourth episode of “Cara Pessoa”

The podcast, produced by Folha and Conectas, is released every Friday on all the main audio streaming platforms

On Friday, November 6, the fourth episode was released of the podcast produced by the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo in partnership with Conectas. This week’s program discusses the boundaries of freedom of expression. 

Hosted by the journalist Fernanda Mena, the podcast addresses how the crisis of misinformation by fake news affects our world that is increasingly more polarized. 

As part of the right to freedom of expression, the podcast recounts the recurring attacks on democracy through censorship and threats made by so-called hate groups.

To analyze the topic, this week’s episode features Patrícia Campos Mello, a journalist at the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo, Fernanda Martins, an anthropologist from InternetLab, Denise Dora, executive director of the NGO Article 19, and the Folha de S.Paulo columnists Conrado Hubner Mendes (a professor at USP) and Thiago Amparo (a professor at FGV Direito) and the cartoonist Laerte.

The Cara Pessoa podcast is available every Friday, at 9 am, on all the main audio streaming platforms.

The narrative of the episodes adopts a format of reading letters that are addressed to the listeners. In this manner, various stories of human rights thinkers are told in a light-hearted and creative way.
