A Conversation with Brooke Gladstone

Wed. March 8, 2023 at 8pm

Award-winning journalist Brooke Gladstone is host of NPR’s On the Media — reaching 1.6 million listeners every week with her insightful observations on the day’s events.

During this moderated conversation, Gladstone discusses ideas from her new book, The Trouble with Reality: A Rumination on Moral Panic in Our Time, in which she outlines how humans have always been instinctively biased toward stories that agree with their beliefs. A keen observer of contemporary communication, she will also look at how the media shapes our worldview, how the spread of false information through the internet fuels the separation of realities in America, and offer a roadmap for reaffirming the value and use of facts in American civil discourse.
