Welcome to the inaugural episode of our new podcast! Our first episode focuses on four tips for consuming media:
1) Don’t look for absolute truth in the news, for it’s just the first draft of history.
2) Consider all sources critically -- including the top newspapers.
3) Follow the money, and you’ll see who pays to influence media narratives.
4) Let go of binary thinking. Liberal v. conservative is a 20th-century construct, and will increasingly become obsolete.
