  • Once great, now needs a new identity

    OTM used to be a weekly must-listen, now some or all of the shows regularly recycle content from previous episodes, coincidentally starting around the same time the co-host left. They must not have the bandwidth or capacity to regularly produce original content, anymore. The show needs a new co-host or to change its format. Now it’s just re-runs.

  • A thoughtful look at the news

    I love how On the Media looks not just at the week’s top stories but analyzes how they’re being reported and digs into what’s below the surface. One of my faves!
