Digital Dada Podcast focuses on discussions around online violence and digital security. Digital technologies have become incredibly vital to journalism work, but this has also resulted in an increase in the amount of tools and platforms that may be used against journalists as a means of surveillance, identification, and harassment by both state and non-state actors. Today, online violence is generally unnoticed by the mainstream media. One explanation for this is because society has yet to acknowledge that internet violence is "real" violence. The fact that it takes place on an internet platform does not make it any less real. Most victims of online abuse are reluctant to disclose the matter, which is aggravated by the victim shaming. The majority of journalists begin self-censoring; this is a huge problem not only for the victims, but for the entire society: when journalists self-censor, the basic right to freedom of information is jeopardized.
