Through the ages, the boundaries between war, technology and politics have blurred. Now, terrorists livestream their brutal attacks online. Twitter “wars” produce real‑world casualties. Viral misinformation influences elections and alters the very fate of nations. Based on the book of the same name, the LikeWar podcast explores the ways in which technology, and especially social media, has been weaponized, arming the internet and the billions of people who use it every day. The series is narrated by New York Times Bestselling author P.W. Singer, described in the Wall Street Journal as “the premier futurist in the national-security environment”, with contributions from his co-author, Emerson T. Brooking.
