On this episode of the Capitalisn’t podcast, hosts Bethany McLean and Luigi Zingales discuss the “Twitter Files”—a collection of internal Twitter documents released publicly by new CEO Elon Musk that reveal the company’s internal processes and policies for dealing with controversial content, including contentious public health information and political revelations. 

Despite the potential significance of these documents, they have received relatively little coverage from the mainstream media. Bethany and Luigi debate and discuss potential reasons behind this; the possible implications at the intersection of social media, politics, and the mainstream media; and solutions to the underlying democratic issues at stake.
