What is Coda?
Coda Story reports on major currents shaping our world from disinformation to authoritarian technologies to the war on science. Coda stays on these stories to reveal why they matter, how they are connected and where they are heading next.
Modern technology was supposed to end dictatorship. But will it end democracy instead?
Access to all human knowledge is at our fingertips. But we’re entering into a crisis of reason.
Propaganda warfare is increasingly shaping narratives, policies and lives around the world.
Money and power. Disinformation. Authoritarian technology. We are tracking how global trends are reshaping your world.
We care about accuracy and our information sources
We are a team of experienced reporters and editors, technologists and designers
We work to tell you stories you have never heard before and show you connections between them you never knew existed
