About This Episode

Echo chambers are a real problem in our news and media consumption. We follow, listen to, and read news from people who tell us what we already believe, so we run the risk of missing out on the truth or valuable perspectives. Our guest, Harleen Kaur, co-founded Ground News, a news comparison platform that promises to uncover your media blind spots by offering news for people from all political ideologies through their website, app, newsletters, and browser extension.

In the first half of the episode, Harleen explains how our current media landscape came to be and the importance of uncovering our own blind spots, and in the second half she shares three things each of us should do every time we consume news.
