NL Conversation: Lakshmi Chaudhry on news fatigue, newsletters, and news as an experience
The news media, like most spaces, has a big blindspot when it comes to the representation of women, even as they bear the brunt of the negative impact of the information explosion. How and why is it so? What can be done to rectify the situation.
To discuss these questions, Chitranshu Tewari spoke with Lakshmi Chaudhry, the founder of Splainer Media and the co-founder of Firstpost.
She talks about her journey launching Splainer, how news is an exclusionary space for women on both the publication and the reader side, and why news needs to be conceptualised as an experience to begin with.
She also talks about the overabundance of news causing "news fatigue", and how the comeback of newsletters is a response to this phenomenon.
