“We tend to get triggered just by hearing things that contradict our worldview.”
— Sara Beth Wald
Many of us want to stay up to date with what’s going on in the world today, but are anxious (and maybe even fearful) about the chaotic state of the news.
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to stay informed without dealing with the overwhelm?
My guest, Sara Beth Wald, is a self-professed news nerd who is passionate about helping people understand and access the news of the day with less anxiety and fear, through consuming it mindfully.
As a former journalist and social worker, she’s ideally trained for this sort of work!
The truth is that many news sources are more interested in selling to us than in keeping us informed, and the information that we’re given is often calibrated to suit a specific target audience.
And it can be hard to figure out where the truth lies!
