In Episode 4, we'll have a chance to dissect what exactly "Cancel Culture" is and the many nuances to this ever expanding debate through a fun game of to cancel or to keep. We’ll also be joined by two guests Diyora Shadijanova and Xi Bovell to see what they have to say about the debate. Diyora talks with us about the evolution of the term itself, and the complex relationship that exists between cancel culture, activism and social media. Xi highlights today's conflation of cancel culture and collective action, and then gives us some pointers for some actions we can do instead of "cancelling". Lastly, we finish with a self-inflicted exposé of some of our worst and most "cancellable" online statuses of the past.
