Earlier this month, hard-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ podcast was banned from Spotify, Google, YouTube, Apple and other tech companies for violating of their terms of service. In the August 24 episode of “The Progressive Happy Hour,” co-hosts Cici Battle and Drew Courtney catch up with Right Wing Watch’s Jared Holt, whose tweet helped to spark the Infowars bans, about his research on the alt right, the movement’s dangerous intersection with technology and how social media companies might address violent rhetoric on their sites.
