Dr. Avery Holton spoke with Pioneer Theatre's Matthew Ivvan Bennett on fact, truth, and authenticity as the company prepares for their production of "The Lifespan of a Fact." The two discuss how social media has warped (and sometimes strengthened) the lifespan of facts. Avery Holton is a 2018 National Humanities Center Fellow and his research focuses on digital and social media and journalism.
