In Praise of Alternative Media

Check out my latest at the Partial Observer - In Praise of Alternative Media Excerpt:

"I can work out, clean the house, or perform menial tasks while listening to podcasts. With a sitcom, I'm compelled to sit and watch. I may laugh a lot - and laughter is good and healthy - but I won't be smarter or more satisfied with life when the show is over. My mind would not have been expanded by someone with information, ideas, or perspectives that challenge my own beliefs.

I listen to alternative media not because I believe people with alternative theories and worldviews are always correct. I listen to see whether what they have to say makes sense."
