Beyond Clickbait: Yevgeny Simkin on News, Outrage, and Media Changes
Hey there, science enthusiasts!
We've got another insightful and thought-provoking episode of "Outrage Overload" that you won't want to miss. In this episode, we take another look at the world of social media, online outrage, and the evolving landscape of media dynamics.
In the article "Social Media IS the Problem" for the Bulwark from 2020, Yevgeney Simkin argued that social media has had a profound impact on our lives, mostly negative. I recently caught up with Simkin to see how his thoughts on social media have evolved since he wrote that article.
If you're interested in learning more about the impact of social media on our lives, then this episode is for you. In this engaging conversation, Yevgeny shares his unique perspective on digital consumption, the changing media incentives that drive content creation, and the role of online outrage in shaping our online experiences. We explore themes like media polarization, the psychology of sharing, and the effects of news consumption on our mindset.
So, are you curious to uncover the intricacies of online media, polarization, and how we can navigate the digital landscape more mindfully?

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.
