In today's fast-moving society, the media can easily slip through our awareness and blend together to create a near constant whir of white noise. We often fail to fully realize how broadcasters and print professionals filter our political process and shape a sense of national culture. On The Media invites us to turn on, tune in, and wise up!
Hosted by veteran journalists Brooke Gladstone and Bob Garfield, On The Media decodes what we hear, read, and see in the media every day and arms us with critical tools necessary to survive the information age. With compelling reporting and uncommon insight, the program breaks through the white noise to uncover significant issues of the day and carefully expose the relationship of the media to culture and society.
