Summary

This week Lizzie sits down with news consumer-turned-author Jodie Jackson… Jodie is on a mission to change the media; her recent book “You Are What You Read” is an invitation to become a part of this movement.

Jodie has spent the last decade researching the psychological impact of the news. Through her work, she has shown that the excessive negativity in the news creates a distorted and harmful picture of the world. Jodie believes that we need a better balance in the news and shows why we must widen the media lens to include stories of solutions, progress and development in order to improve our psychological & sociological wellbeing, the news industry and, ultimately, the world. Lizzie and Jodie discuss the negative mental health impact of the constant flow of negative news, due to the way technology and media has evolved over recent decades, and how we can curate our own “news diet” to be more conscious of what we are digesting while still being informed in more mentally healthy way.

What is Earth Shakers?

Earth Shakers is a brand new podcast hosted by Lizzie Carr, an eco-adventurer, campaigner, author and founder of the environmental movement, Planet Patrol.

Lizzie has spent the last five years bringing attention to some of the most pressing issues affecting our planet. And with so much happening in the world right now - all at lightening speed - it can feel like a pretty daunting place.

Earth Shakers is her brand new podcast designed to help us feel equipped and empowered to make a positive difference in the world. This podcast delves into the minds of leading scientists, social innovators, activists, storytellers, adventurers and thinkers who are shaking up the planet, and making sense of the chaos. These individuals are pushing boundaries to forge a better world and we discuss everything from the challenges faced, sacrifices made and visions for the future, as well as the motivators that keep them going.

We’ll be able to learn something from every single one of them and, importantly, they will be providing us with the knowledge and tools to show up and take action in our daily lives - bringing out the earth shaker that exists in us all.
