The Best Debate in the Universe - Is social media making us depressed? Camila Paiva, Dreadmere
Monday October 22nd 2018
Debate starts at: 15:24. Is social media making us depressed? Singer & song-writer Camila Paiva and Dreadmere joins us to debate this week. When was the last time you felt better about yourself after using social media?
