This week features stories about “Facebook Giving”, which is all about Facebook’s donation platform. That shouldn’t be confused with “Facebook Taking” - which all about how Zuckerberg and co have systematically destroyed democracy, privacy and, to be honest, the overall fabric of society.

Joining host Bex today is Greg Ashton and Fay Schofield
