About This Show
Stride and Saunter is a podcast for thinking differently - specifically about humanity and curiosity. Every week, we bring you honest, thought-provoking discussions about the world we live in and how we perceive it. We aim to reconsider ourselves, the ways we relate to one another and the world we share. We're here to explore the depths with you.

Episode 180: Ecosystems of Information
2 days ago
With an increasingly connected and technologically-developed world, we might expect humanity to share and spread information similarly. But we do not all receive, express or process the same information as our peers. What's more, many of us disregard information that does not agree with our previously held standards and beliefs. This week, we explore a concept described by Ira Glass at Third Coast 2017 as "information ecosystems". How does an ecosystem as an analogy help us to conceptualize the flow of information and ideas? How can we expand and intermingle ecosystems which operate independently of one another? How can we move beyond our own information ecosystems to experience more nuanced perspectives?

an OK show!
Technical Ability: Competent
Structure: none, really - just discussing a topic.
Hosts: Meh. Interesting people, but basically share the same viewpoint. Show tends to be the two hosts echoing each others' thoughts. Needs an opposing host (a woman? a conservative?) to be truly engaging.
