Talking Heads: Radio & TV
Program #DOUS003. Recorded in San Diego, CA on September 22, 2000.Talk shows on radio and TV have become a kind of electronic surrogate for the town common. But what of the content? Susan Douglas says that it's more than just guys and right-wing blondes shouting at one another. Underneath the rhetoric are layers of misogyny, homophobia, race and class bias.
