Good episode? Give it some love!
More than ever, we need to fight fake news and misinformation by getting out of our filter bubbles. A bitterly contested election at a time of political paralysis and partisan bickering makes the case for change even more urgent.

In this episode, we look at the groundbreaking work of AllSides.com, which shines a light on media bias by offering readers a selection of daily news stories from publications that tilt left, right or center.

Our guests are AllSides founder and CEO John Gable, and the site’s director of product, Samantha Shireman.

AllSides is an increasingly popular media destination with many millions of page views that aims to strengthen democracy with balanced news and diverse perspectives. 

Today's recommendation: Richard is reading "Apeirogon", a novel by the Irish writer, Colum McCann.
