MiniMeme Podcast: Disaster Shark and other internet hoaxes

Welcome to MiniMeme, Burn Media’s podcast helmed by the junior staff where they talk about any topic that tickles their fancy.

This week, it’s all about internet hoaxes, big and small, that have shaped the way people use the internet (or just made us laugh, if we’re honest).

We talk: Disaster Shark, libertarian time traveller John Titor, Cole Sprouse’s Tumblr experiment, and how “fake news” has made it all a lot less fun.
