It is pledge week here at Montana Public Radio. So, this week’s episode is a special edition of Incentives & Instincts with economist and friend Bryce Ward. Bryce and Justin talk about why our trust in media is so low when the quality and performance of media has arguably been improving.
Justin asks Bryce how our trust in media has declined, and Bryce uses diet as an analogy for abundance of information and what that can do to our tastes. Bryce talks about how people are shopping more for information that engages them, not informs them, and Justin asks what we can do to improve the media environment.
