Keep it in Perspective
Summary: Just like the name implies, Keep it in Perspective is all about taking what's going on in our crazy politics and putting it in context. Let's face it: traditional news media - even the good stuff! - is doing a great job at normalizing the craziness we're living through. And that didn't begin with this administration. We've been sliding down the spiral of insanity since The Reagan Revolution, and we're only falling faster with the 24-hour news cycle, the web, and social media.KIIP slows it down, steps back from the hype, and well, puts it all into perspective. We'll measure up what's happening now against a little recent history. When you hear the politicos talking budgets and numbers, we'll take it back to economics - at least a simplified version. And since schools stopped teaching civics, we can do some refreshers here. Informative but fun, Keep it in Perspective is reclaiming reason and interring ignorance one episode at a time. Subscribe today and don't forget to share with your friends.
