The guest for this episode is…wait for it…Kim and Jenn, your podcast hosts!
Jenn, as one of Michigan Radio's All Things Considered hosts deals with a lot of controversial news content. Kimberly, as our Social Media Producer, moderates listener and social media content that evokes many emotions for many people.
They have different ways of approaching their jobs at a media organization, which require following journalistic ethics. They ask, and try to answer:
What are your criteria for engaging, in an age of information overload? Is there a responsibility to be informed about every racist, sexist, other -ist, story in the world or is it ok to just check out sometimes? What are some approaches to checking in & checking out on social media?
How do you deal with information/discrimination overload? Listen and find out how we cope…or don’t cope!
