News Literacy: Now more than ever

What to do in an age of “fake news” and echo chambers? Get curious about your news.

US and Virginia government teacher Patricia Hunt joins me to talk about news literacy and how to build strong and discerning information-processing muscle. Being intentional about what we know and how we know it has never been more important.

I love that inspiration for this story came as I sat in traffic in I-95 on the way to my parents’ house for Christmas. Proof that even those moments and hours that feel utterly lost can and do yield good fruit. Serendipity for the win!
