3RT:5 – Looking Through the Overton Window

In this podcast, I recount the time I accidentally played a minor role in starting RedState.com and discovered the power of the Overton Window.

Further reading: An old DailyKos thread RE: Josh Trevino’s evangelizing about the Overton Window, and research into the “Door in the Face” psychological method to increase compliance.

Stacy C. had some great suggestions for progressive media from a more diverse perspective than you’re currently getting on 3RT: Yo, Is This Racist? on Earwolf; “every Wednesday, Ti, co-host Tawny Newsome, and their guests answer questions from fan-submitted voicemails and emails about whether or not something is, in fact, racist.” Code Switch from NPR; “a team of journalists fascinated by the overlapping themes of race, ethnicity and culture, how they play out in our lives and communities, and how all of this is  shifting.” Reveal from PRX; “from prisons to protests, immigration to the environment, Peabody Award-winning Reveal goes deep into the pressing issues of our times.” And finally, Ear Hustle also by PRX; Ear Hustle “brings you the daily realities of life inside prison, shared by those living it, and stories from the outside, post-incarceration.” Thanks, Stacy!
