The third episode of the kNOwHATE podcast covers the connection between hate speech and the far-right

The third episode of the kNOwHATE project podcast, "Cortar o mal pela raíz" (Nip the evil in the bud), is out. This episode addresses the question of whether far-right and hate speech are hand-in-hand. Participants of the episode were Ricardo Cabral (Journalist and far-right expert) and Ackssana Rodrigues da Silva (Sociologist, elected member of Amadora Municipal Assembly). As in the previous episodes, the discussion is conducted by journalist Cláudia Semedo.

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

In addition to the project's YouTube page, the podcast is now also available on Spotify.

Here is a teaser for the third episode:
