Audible Editor Reviews

Now, more than ever, we are flooded with a constant stream of news and information. Whether it’s a weather report or a graphic footage of a warzone, it is nearly impossible to make it through a day consuming some form of news. At the 92nd Street Y, psychoanalyst Dr. Gail Saltz joins news anchor and author Tom Brokaw for an in-depth and engrossing look at how our constant contact with news and media can affect our psyche. Through an entertaining conversation, Dr. Saltz and Brokaw examine not only the effect of news on the individual, but the individual’s effect on how news is delivered.
