Podcasts & Media Literacy

Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular all over the world. On the one hand, this feels like the next chapter of the democratization of the media space, which is something to be welcomed and another great tool to reach out to the masses. After all, even BFM shows are available as podcasts. On the other hand, it could also become another avenue to spread misinformation or half-truths.

Dr Benjamin Loh is a Senior Lecturer, School Of Media and Communication, Taylor's University, and he recently wrote a column for Malaysiakini titled Rise of podcasting and its threat to critical discourse – which is what we discuss on this episode.
