#55 - The leaked Facebook report

37 mins | Sep 20, 2021

Today's episode from 21st September 2021. Coming up this morning: Are famous Facebook users getting away with posting what they like, including revenge porn, without consequence? We take a look at leaked reports which suggest immunity for the rich and famous but which the company says it's trying to control. Then later, is it time to take a well-earned break from other people? We hear why loneliness might actually spark ambition, make you more attentive and increase creativity. From the Wall Street Journal, Jeff Horwitz investigates Facebook's special enforcement system for VIP users. Here, he reveals how a program known as XCheck has given millions of celebrities, politicians and influencers special treatment, which is a privilege that many of them abuse. In this personal exploration of loneliness from Salon, Miciah Bay Gault considers whether the feeling is truly the opposite of intimacy. Here, she argues that many of us are so scared of being alone that we often miss the positives of time by ourselves. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
