35 years ago today was the crash of 1987. If you were at a doctor, in a meeting, or in school, chances are you didn’t know what was happening until later that day because we didn’t have phones or instant access to information. That lack of instant information also meant if you were the subject of an unfavorable news story, it was nearly impossible to escape that story. Today, politicians, CEOs, and whoever can flood social media to change the narrative when they need or want to do so. That instantaneous transmission of news has changed the trust factor, but is it for the better or worse? Instant access ensures we know what is going on, but does it also desensitize us? On this week’s episode, Tom and Dylan discuss the implications of information dissemination and how it’s affected our perceptions and accountability.
