Better and Better

This show just keeps getting more insightful and brilliant. Anti-anti-intellectualism. Please listen, please think.

If you’re into context and critical thinking about today’s issue this podcast is for you

I have a voracious appetite for information and perspective, especially as they relate to current events. Listening to this podcast has opened my eyes to the true nature of American politics, how and why we engage with technology the way we do, and busted myths about U.S. history. If you want be more understanding of the how’s and why’s of the world around you this is a great place to start.

Amazing production

Just wanted to say that On the Media has been producing amazing work lately! As a sociology instructor, I plan on using several episodes for class.
