The description says it is about how "the media sausage is made." It is not. It takes an article or two from recent media and gives a left of center political opinion filled in with some history of the topic from a supposed expert. If you want fictional entertainment based on current events, go for it. This isn't what is described though, and it isn't factual.
Super important podcast. Really helped me wake up to the ways the media skews different stories and the larger narratives they fit in. I really think more people need to question the way media frames stories to us and I think this podcast definitely helps with that
I love Bob and Brooke so so much. I rely on them for more information about...all the things I worry about.
One of the few remaining lighthouses for Democracy itself.
Some of the best, clearest analysis of media I've found. It uncovers the flaws of several media outlets and teaches you to be skeptical even of yourself. Nobody is immune to rational mistakes, not even you!
An excellent example of the "liberal media elite" talking to themselves about themselves. The CJR podcast is not great, but leaves this for dead.
Keeping the media in check
Great and thought-provoking listen. Consistantly quality. Definitely leans to the left.
