The panel for our third episode includes Martin Harvey-Olson, Will Maguire, Coltrane Stagg, Neil Karkhanis, Arthur Velwest, Emily Pearce, and Leandros Rivera. This is our largest panel so far, and it should be an amazing conversation!
The topic that they have chosen to discuss is Internet Culture.
This is such a HUGE topic, our panelists have SO much to discuss.
The Youth will discuss the various subcultures that have come into existence since the Internet was created, Viral videos, Memes, YouTubers, Internet gamers, Art, Music, etc. I’m sure the effect that social media has on everyday life will come up, as well as how the Internet has changed the economy, and how we watch TV and movies, and even how we become informed of important world and local events. What effect has the Internet had on recent major world events, such as the 2016 US Election, Brexit, the refugee crisis, and much more. Our panel will discuss all this and more. If you are able to watch live, feel free to ask questions, and our panel will do their best to answer.
