Description

Murad Hemmadi is a reporter for The Logic and this week he talks to Elizabeth about political information repertoires. From party campaign material to policy discussions to political memes, political information repertoires can be a mix of a lot of different things. They chat about what makes up a persons’ repertoire, the idea of Slacktivism, the lack of ‘backstory’ in the news, and Jagmeet Singh’s TikTok.


Additional Resources:

Elizabeth draws on this article by Wolfsfeld et al. to define political information repertoires.

Elizabeth uses The Conversation Canada as an example to show how some outlets are trying to communicate better with the public.

Murad and Elizabeth discuss whether they agree with this article by Oh et al. that finds high amounts of political information may actually overwhelm and negatively impact people.

Elizabeth mentions the Reuters Digital News Report which breaks down how news is being consumed across a range of countries.

**A quick note that in this episode Murad uses “repository” synonymously with “repertoires,” repertoires is the correct term.
