On The Media

ON THE MEDIA

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Peabody-award winning On The Media examines new technology, threats to free speech, and hidden political narratives in the media.

The weekly podcast explores how the media "sausage" is made, casts an incisive eye on fluctuations in the marketplace of ideas, and examines threats to the freedom of information and expression in America and abroad. For oune hour a week, the show tries to lift the veil from the process of "making media," especially news media, because it's through that lens that we see the world and the world sees us.
