On the Media

Sundays at 6 pm CT and Mondays at 3 am CT on HPPR; Fridays at 9 pm CT on HPPR Connect
  • Hosted by Bob Garfield and Brooke Gladstone

On the Media explores how the media 'sausage' is made, casts an incisive eye on fluctuations in the marketplace of ideas, and examines threats to the freedom of information and expression in America and abroad. For one hour a week, the show tries to lift the veil from the process of "making media," especially news media, because it's through that lens that we literally see the world and the world sees us.
