Ep.1515: The New Twitter and Ep.1516: Toxic Holidays
November 30, 2022
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews Author, CEO of Ericho Communications Eric Yaverbaum.Hate speech already saw an uptick on Twitter since Elon Musk’s recent takeover. Not to mention that Musk is now “cleaning shop”, with plenty of layoffs planned at the company. From a delay in censoring hate-filled words to layoffs en masse, what will Twitter’s reputation become? If this continues, how can we anticipate our view of Twitter to change? Will it still keep its spot as a mainstream communications town square, or will it become equivalent to the next 8kun? Eric Yaverbaum, CEO of Ericho Communications and author of Public Relations for Dummies and Leadership Secrets of the World's Most Successful CEOs touches upon the negative ramifications of hate speech on Twitter, and the potential danger it poses to millions of people. He has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, The Washington Post, The NY Times, HuffPost, CNBC, and PR Week, among others.Kathryn also interviews Author Steve Simpson.This time of year may be festive for most people, but it is also painful and toxic to many. For those people, the holidays bring on the specter of violence, and the pandemic has only made it worse: a struggling economy, an increase in illness and disease, and mental health issues that are increasing at an alarming rate. These are all major factors in dysfunctional homes, and sadly, contribute to an increase in suicide as a way out. Steve Simpson remembers toxic holidays. He doesn’t think about them as often as he used to, but he remembers them. Simpson wants to help child abuse victims, like himself, find help and hope this holiday season -- just in time for National Runaway Prevention Month (November) -- and throughout the year. He has been featured on national media including CNN, FOX News, ABC News, CBS News, Montel Williams, Sally Jesse Raphael, Gordon Elliot, Ricki Lake, Maury Povich, NBC Network News, The Joe Franklin Show, and Geraldo.
