Marie Beecham on Echo Chambers

Marie Beecham on Echo Chambers

By Gemma Styles

Good Influence

Sunday, 3 July

This is the podcast where each week we'll meet a guest who’ll help us pay attention to something we should know about, but maybe don’t. 

 

This week we're talking about echo chambers; the downside of everyone being on the same page, avoiding harm, but not always avoiding discomfort, and how differing opinions can strengthen our causes.


Marie Beecham is a writer, public speaker and online educator who advocates for racial equity and social unity using social platforms as well as Patreon and other media. She works with individuals, businesses and general online audiences to reduce divisions amongst us by using what she calls radical compassion.
