Coda Currents

Coda Currents illuminates the trends shaping our world and puts them in context. From disinformation and the power of conspiracy theories to authoritarian tech and the rise of surveillance to the war on scientific fact and the influence of pseudoscience, we focus on the overarching stories that are poised to dominate our politics and our lives for years, perhaps decades, to come. Each week, Coda Story journalists show how these global trends impact you and communities around the world. You’ll hear international stories you won’t find anywhere else and see connections you never knew existed.


Coda Currents is hosted by Caitlin Thompson, an audience fellow and reporter at Coda. Caitlin has reported and produced stories for her local NPR station in California and has worked with the podcast team at Foreign Policy magazine.
