Kony 2012: Unpacking The Controversial Global Sensation
Joseph KonyIn a just over a week, 80 million people have viewed a 30 minute video about the long-standing human rights abuses of a Ugandan warlord. A clever campaign for change, custom packaged for a social media world. Supporters say it’s inspiring a new generation of activists, while critics say it’s oversimplified and puts consumerism ahead of education. Who’s right? And, does it matter?

Guests:
  Margery Dillenburg, former chief operating officer Invisible Children, first year doctoral student at the Boston University School of Education
  Ethan Zuckerman, director of the MIT Center for Civic Media, co-founder of the international blogging community Global Voices
