    On this episode of Fault Lines, host Garland Nixon is joined in-studio by producers Kameran Evans and Eric Ladny to discuss Silicon Valley and their obsession with controlling the flow of information. Why do tech companies seem so intent on monitoring what people see; what is the great threat?

    Andrew Cuomo is currently running for his third term as Governor of New York. Reporter Dominic Carter returns to Fault Lines to discuss Cuomo's recent moves against the NRA and the possibility of a debate between the sitting governor and his celebrity primary challenger, Cynthia Nixon.

    The trial of Paul Manafort is now into its second week as the testimony of his former associate Rick Gates has taken center stage. Colin Kalmbacher who has been covering the trial from inside the courtroom joins the show to give the latest updates on the state of the trial and the status of the prosecution's case.

    One of the more troubling trends in media consumption is how people are being pushed into ideological and media bubbles both willingly and without their knowledge.
