It’s been a while since we published The WRUV Reader, but our passion for radio literature remains strong!
Today we bring you a podcast drawing on the wisdom of Jurgen Habermas, a German philosopher who has delved further into the world of media discourse than your average genius. In this podcast, we take a look at how our private and public spheres collide in the modern media environment.
Drawn from interviews with media voices local, national and international, The Habermas Podcast invites you on a journey into a social media age where your thoughts aren’t always your own.
Our guests include:
- Natalie DiBlasio, formerly of USA Today, now head of social media at WIRED
- Anne Galloway, publisher of investigative watchdog VTDigger.org
- David Niose, president of the American Humanist Association and the Secular Coalition for America
- Pam Platt, journalist with extensive experience at Gannett newspapers, including Florida Today and the Louisville Courier-Journal
- Thomas Streeter, professor of sociology at the University of Vermont
With these authorities and others, we discuss how your life might not be as private as you think. And, perhaps, you’re not as much of an individual as you believe.
