Michael Grothaus Novelist, Journalist and Author of ‘Trust No One: Inside the World of Deepfakes’ joined Jonathan McCrea to discuss his book and the scary reality of deepfakes currently. Grothaus examines cases that demonstrate the threats presented by morally dubious creators.

From the personal to political, the impact of deep fakes is considered carefully by Grothaus, both on the victims and on society as a whole, creating an essential picture of a growing trend in disinformation.
