Ep. 111: Knowing the News (2/3)

Continuing on from the last episode, Erin and I continue our discussion on staying informed without losing our minds. In this one: why? Why is it a good thing to keep up with the news?

It’s a noble assumption that keeping up with the news makes us better people… but when is it harmful to us? We talk about the wrong sorts of whys for staying informed—and the healthier, better, more sustainable-in-the-long-term reasons for knowing what’s going on.
