In a world where reliance on technology and the media is high, a significant portion of our decisions and attitudes are influenced by the media in our environment. We never would have imagined how much of the public's political decisions and even elections have been influenced by the media.
Many different media, including television, blogs on the Internet, newspapers, etc., are the main sources through which people learn about political events, governmental issues, current affairs, etc.
Our podcast is designed to inspire and empower people (youth and women) by discussing topics that can help them make better and more informed decisions.
We'll talk about how we interpret the current state of affairs in South Africa, Africa, and the rest of the world. We will analyze and talk about the effects of media on our decisions, and how those decisions can affect our lives.
We'll invite key guests who will share their perspectives on key topics to assist our listeners with exploring alternatives to guide them with their decision-making processes.
People, particularly women, and youth, often need informed guidance on what path to take or decision to make in life, but they usually do not receive this informed guidance for a variety of reasons, such as a lack of encouraging teachers, mentors, and parents, they often end up making the wrong decisions which have adverse and long term implications.
In addition, this issue is further exacerbated by a lack of resources or access to information, busy schedules, or plain old apathy. As a result of this, most people end up relying heavily on mass media and advertising to inform their decisions, despite those decisions being either beneficial or detrimental to their lifestyles.
