Ava Richards is a senior at Carlmont High School.

Is cancel culture a valid form of activism? In this episode of tbh, Ava Richards explores a question that's on the minds of millions, as new controversies about the influential and not-so-influential surface on a daily basis.

"These platforms are generating billions and billions of dollars out of your emotions, out of your attention. And the longer you stay on your screen, it's like chi-ching, chi-ching, chi-ching, chi-ching." - Shaka McGlotten, Media Studies professor

This episode was edited by Sarah Lai Stirland, and engineered by Julia Llinas-Goodman and James Rowlands.
