The Peabody Award-winning On the Media podcast is your guide to examining how the media sausage is made. Hosts Brooke Gladstone and Bob Garfield examine threats to free speech and government transparency, cast a skeptical eye on media coverage of the week’s big stories and unravel hidden political narratives in everything we read, watch and hear. WNYC Studios is a listener-supported producer of other leading podcasts including Radiolab, Snap Judgment, Death, Sex & Money, Nancy and Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin. © WNYC Studios

Customer Reviews

Brilliant on every level

My eyes light up when I see On The Media in my podcast feed. Current affairs are covered from unexpected angles and with rare insight...and Brook's editing turns each episode into a work of art. Thank you Brook and Bob.

The best hour on air every week!

I’ve been listening to On the Media for as long as I can remember, and it never fails to illuminate current events and media coverage thereof in ways that are smart, useful, and completely different than what I hear anywhere else. They are unflinching in examining the role of the media in news/current events, and going behind the story to get at the premise, presumptions, and context that sets every story. The best hour on air!
