Show Notes

Today's episode of The Annex discusses Internet mob justice in the face of unsolved crimes. We ask what happens when the Internet tries to solve an urgent crime through collaborations on social media and Internet forums.

Our guest is Penn Pantumsinchai from the University of Hawaii. Penn published "Armchair detectives and the social construction of falsehoods: an actor–network approach" in Information, Communication, and Society. She also co-hosts a sociology podcast called The Social Breakdown, which we covered earlier this year.
