The Braver Angels Podcast

Dec 7, 2020

Bill Ottman is the founder of, a new community-owned, "open source" social media network that prizes privacy, transparency, and open exchange. Unlike Facebook, which mines your data to target you with ads, Minds does not monetize its users' data and offers people financial credits based on the content they share. In this episode of the Braver Angels Podcast, Ciaran and Bill discuss how the structure of major social networks like Facebook has fueled political polarization, toxified our public discourse, and stripped away our privacy -- and how seeks to become a more vibrant, democratic alternative that opens the door to a less radicalized user base and a healthier form of debate.
