(Press)ed Episode 6: Fake News Class

When we asked listeners to tell us what they wanted to hear about on (Press)ed, the topic that came up the most was “fake news.” In this episode, we visit a class at Narragansett High School where students are learning to spot misinformation. Maybe this lesson will help us to become more discerning media consumers too. This is the final episode of (Press)ed. Thank you for your support!

(Press)ed Episode 5: Communal Thinking

What can the theory of “communal thinking” tell us about how we navigate political issues? Steven Sloman - a professor of cognitive, psychological, and linguistic sciences at Brown University and co-author of the book The Knowledge Illusion: Why We Never Think Alone - says: “We should think about the process of thought not as something that goes on inside an individual head, but something that happens between people.” In this episode of (Press)ed, we’ll consider how communal thinking might influence our political beliefs, polarization, and how we’re affected by the news media.

(Press)ed Episode 4: The Conversation

Listen in as Bonnie and Dave finally come together to talk about *gasp* politics... Two neighbors, from across the street and the political divide, share the intimate ideas, values, and associations tied to their media consumption. Does the conversation remind you of talking about politics with your friends, family, or loved ones? We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
