As part of my initial research into the outrage porn problem, to see if there might be something worth pursuing along the lines of a vlog or something, I started doing what I call these “man on the street” interviews where I ask people about their awareness of outrage media, how they have been impacted by it, news sources, social media consumption, and such, in as non-partisan a way as possible, in active-listening mode; I don’t argue, or defend any positions, or try to change anybody’s mind in these interviews.
I found these interviews extremely enlightening, talking with people across political and generational spectrums.
What started as a way for me to learn, turned into a segment on the podcast, kind of a micro-podcast within the podcast, which we call Street Outrage.
That’s where Street Outrage comes from. The interview content may appear here on the website, as a special bonus episode, or clips could be spread across episodes in Street Outrage segments. Guests can remain anonymous if desired.
