Michael Bossetta and Andreas Jungherr discuss his latest book, "Retooling Politics: How Digital Media are Shaping Democracy" on the Social Media and Politics podcast.
We chat about the state of social media research in political science and political communication, and what we currently know about echo chambers, polarization, and election prediction. We also discuss how digital media is shaping political campaigning and the role it might play for campaigns in the future and bust some favorite myths on the role of digital media in politics.
And once you are at it, make sure to check out previous episodes. Michael has been at it for a while and collected a set of veritable treasures for anyone interested in digital media in politics.
