Episode 24: Be Explicit, Be Honest

This week on Shades of Brown, we talk about moderation on social networks and how hate speech and abuse should be policed. We also have a discussion about Mastodon and how the network moderates itself.

Also, even though I (this is Cristian here) do mention it in the show I want to reiterate that our conversation does come from a cis-male POC viewpoint and the privilege that brings. I do not intend for us to sound elitist or uninformed of how folks are being abused every day by some of these bad actors and I truly would appreciate feedback on this because I want to be better. As always, thank you for listening.

P.S. We know that Cristian’s audio this week is super poppy and we apologize for that. He promises not to be so close to the mic next week.
