The final episode of the kNOwHATE podcast explores how to fight hate speech

The fourth and final episode of the kNOwHATE project podcast, "Cortar o mal pela raíz" (Nip the evil in the bud), is now available on the project's YouTube page, and on Spotify.

This episode addresses ways to counter hate speech. Participants of the episode were Cláudia Silva (Researcher at the Interactive Technologies Institute-LARSyS and member of the kNOwHATE team) and Vanessa Lopes (Journalist, President of the RIZOMA Association). As in the previous episodes, the discussion is conducted by journalist Cláudia Semedo.

The podcast, divided in four episodes, aimed to give voice to diverse perspectives and livings with a common goal: understanding online hate speech in Portuguese to counter it.

Here is a teaser for the final episode:
