We live in a golden age of digital media content. From pod-casts to blogs and online programs, there’s never been so much competition for the information consumer’s attention. “Pop culture pirate,” Elisa Kreisinger brings humor and a mastery of pop culture to some of today’s most pressing issues.
Kreisinger is a writer, producer, and podcaster who sees digital media as a wonderfully accessible if financially-trying platform for storytelling. Her podcast, Strong Opinions Loosely Held, explored issues like the #MeToo movement as well as whether audiences should stop watching films made by or starring performers whose off-screen behavior included sexual aggression.
“Story in the Public Square” broadcasts each week on public television stations across the United States. A full listing of the national television distribution is available at this link.
