Divided We Watch: How Media and Entertainment Reflect Our Increasingly Tribal Culture | Sara Fischer of Axios and Rich Greenfield of LightShed Partners The Dumbest Guy in the Room

    • Business

It’s hard to imagine TV shows or movies captivating our nation the way they used to, which is a shame, because we’ve never needed something to bring us together like we do today. Sure, there are shows like Squid Game and Ted Lasso, but a third of Americans don’t have Netflix and many more don’t have Apple TV+. It makes you wonder if entertainment does more to divide us — both because of how fragmented it is and how it’s deliberately engineered to appeal to specific segments of the population. So where does it all leave us?

In this episode of The Dumbest Guy in the Room, Axios Media Reporter Sara Fischer and Rich Greenfield of LightShed Partners join CivicScience CEO John Dick to discuss the present and future of everything from the news to the movies to the metaverse — whatever that is.
