Today on the podcast we touched upon many subjects such as Ryan Lochte, the 2016 Rio Olympics, and the latest news in the NFL. This week we also started important conversations about making comedy safe for women, how best to improve relationships between law enforcement and our communities, and why men (still) demand, and get, the right to legislate access to women’s bodies and what they choose to wear. As always we touched upon the role of the media in how to better frame these conversations.
There are no easy answers to many of the questions we posed today but our goal is to keep talking about these issues in the hope that discussion will lead to a better conversation and ultimately better results. How, and why, we talk about things matter. What the media chooses to discuss and how it goes about framing the narrative are equally important.
On Friday’s show we return to our discussion on privacy in the internet age and how we interact with one another, particularly those with whom we disagree. Its an important discussion with harassment and online cruelty at an all time high. Social media is a powerful tool that can help bring us together or that will continue to drive us apart.
