Good episode? Give it some love!
On today’s episode, Greg and Brian are talking about the current climate regarding the lack of trust that many people feel regarding major news outlets. They start the conversation by putting things into a historical context with a brief discussion on how the invention of the printing press is a lot like the invention of major social media outlets. 
They also bring up the different biases that affect our own interpretation of information and how that can be even more difficult given the number of news stories we consume on a daily basis. They end the discussion with some possible ways to address the apparent lack of accountability and responsibility seen across different media platforms.
