Deep distraction is a podcast I’ve just decided to do…just out of the blue.
Episode 1 –
A few thoughts on the newsworthiness of the Ben Robert-Smiths defamation trial and how news today is more like satire than news. Plus, what does the spectacle of this trial obscure in our cultural commentary about war, honour and violence?
Satire, be it the work of recognised satirists or citizen satirists is a way to speak truth to power. Often it’s a way to shine a light on the unjust and lately, the news is looking more like satire than news and it can be hard to tell the difference!
