The media!

Good episode? Give it some love!
The media seems like it plays a big role in politics -- but how, exactly, does it affect us? Does the media ever change our mind about things, or do we all just seek out information we already agree with? Is "new media" -- with its partisan bubbles and echo chambers -- to blame for polarization?
In this episode, we speak with legendary media expert Prof. Shanto Iyengar, Ph.D. (Stanford) and brilliant journalist Walt Hickey (Insider, Numlock News) about these questions -- and what we can do about them.
This is an audio recording of our live-streaming YouTube show, which aired on Oct. 1, 2020.
