Description

When a newspaper shuts down, there are obvious costs to the community it serves: job losses, fewer local stories. But new research suggests there's another consequence that's harder to spot—one that comes with a hefty price tag for residents. This week on Hidden Brain we ask, who bears the cost when nobody wants to pay? For more information about the research in this episode, visit https://n.pr/2zSPraS.

I was very skeptical through the first part of this episode. By the end, I was got and I think this is my new favorite. Very compelling.

Amazing episode. I'm thankful to live in a state that still produces newspapers.
