Media Literacy with Michael Saar

This episode first aired before the 2018 mid-term elections. There is so much in this episode that is so relevant to the same arguments that we are having over sharing articles on facebook, spreading lies through social media, and divisiveness. I enjoyed revisiting this conversation with Michael and hearing my growth as a podcaster in this episode!
