When you digest news, do you ever feel as if you are being experimented on, manipulated, told what to think?  Know anyone, maybe even someone you love, who you think has changed, and not for the better, because of their news consumption?  Do you ever feel like the media is deliberately making us feel angry, worried, anxious?

Episode 74 host Mary Scott Hunter calls out the media and leads a conversation about the way media can make us feel and why we must be intentional about what we allow into our hearts and minds.

In this episode, we discuss the pros and cons of media, how it has changed for better and worse, the tendency for there to always be an “enemy” and how damaging this is for productive dialogue and problem solving.

We also talk about our own methods for managing news consumption in ways that are efficient and informative and as devoid of opinion as possible.  We offer some tips for mentally triaging the news.
