Poverty and How We See It

On my recent drives, I’ve really enjoyed listening to¬†On The Media. Specifically, their recent long series on poverty and its representation in the media has been fantastic.

Myths, preconceptions, and unwillingness to learn can negatively affect our opinions of other people. These failures to critically think can also lead us to make harmful or destructive choices. Poverty is one of those areas where I see the greatest divergence between expert opinions and media portrayals. This podcast series entertains well while informing. No preaching, just questions and people sharing. Check it out.
