🎧 Echo-chambers are not the problem
Also, a new This Week in Outrage
In episode 13 of the Outrage Overload podcast, I sit down with researcher Ritsaart Reimann to talk about misinformation and disagreement.
There’s been a drum beat, suggesting that social media and information silos, echo chambers, are a driving force behind our divisiveness and polarization.
New research suggests this may be overstated.
It may have more to do with the very nature of how we come to know or believe things in the political realm.

I’m always curious who is listening to the show. Please help me out by taking this self-reporting poll.
New This Week in Outrage Episode!
It’s everything the Outrage Overload podcast is not. It’s not edited. It’s not scripted. It’s lightly researched. There’s no sophisticated podcast studio equipment. It’s almost always over an hour long. It’s David and Lisa talking about this week in outrage, what was in the news, in the memes, and maybe finding some backstory with a humorous (at least to us) twist.
