An insight from toward the end of this great episode: reality TV producers actually have a hard time making juicy television because people are “annoyingly good at getting along.” (Someone who worked for The Bachelorette Canada told me a version of this once.) Thing is peace, laughter and camaraderie is sensational to watch, too. Especially where you least expect it. If you need a listen that confirms the existence of our better angels, especially in times of crisis, this is it. I can’t wait for the move version.

by Citations Needed
In light of recent events (re: George Floyd), I believe the topic of how the media depicts violence is one that incredibly overdue.

Here, I encourage everyone to revisit this episode of Citations Needed. It's easily one of my favourites.
