As people of the modern age, we can access the whole world through a simple swipe or scroll. We can read about the global politics, listen to music from the 1970s, or binge watch cat videos. This is one of the most exciting aspects of being alive today, but it can be undeniably overwhelming. Sometimes it seems like stories, slogans, and images are constantly fighting for our attention. Additionally, the endless array of options can make deciding what to consume difficult. Well, we want to help! We are starting The Monthly Media Roundup to streamline your media selection process. Each month, we’ll put together a cultural list of pieces that are making us think, feel, and smile in hopes that you’ll like them too.
Here are some things we were into this month:
