Chatter #103 – Jennifer Rauch on Slow Media, Digital Minimalism, and the 24 Hour News Cycle

Jennifer Rauch the author of Slow Media: Why Slow is Satisfying, Sustainable and Smart was my guest on today’s show. I came across her work when researching the idea of slow media. I have been reading a lot this year on the problems with the speed of modern technology and the modern news cycle so I was really interested in talking to someone who takes a fairly unique perspective in trying to reject as much as possible the 24 hour news cycle and our Twitter and Facebook based news consumption. We discussed the need to deliberately choose your news sources, fake news, misinformation, and why slow media can help us all gain more perspective and understanding of the world we inhabit.
