Heidi Harris Show Podcast #208: Don’t give social media haters power over your psyche

As a radio host, I get trashed by people a lot, and of course I can take it. It comes with the territory. But if you find yourself getting depressed or feeling like you’re constantly under attack or obligated to respond to every hater, you can step away, you know. From friends, family, strangers…you don’t have to engage them. You can block, ignore, unfollow, whatever it is. You don’t OWE them your time, or space in your head. Think of the people you truly admire and ask yourself what THEY are doing. They’re probably not attacking others on social media. You’ll find that if you take that approach, you’ll feel much better.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #168: Social media’s censorship and the effect on talk radio

How are radio hosts across the country responding to the censorship and “shadow banning” of conservative hosts on social media? I have certainly experienced it firsthand, and it’s annoying to say the least. Should we let these triggered lefty brats in Silicon Valley shut us down? How can today’s radio and podcast hosts navigate the waters?

For insight on how it’s affecting the industry as a whole, and what other radio hosts are saying, I turned to Michael Harrison, Publisher of Talkers’ Magazine, the #1 trade publication for talk radio. He’s always a fascinating guest.
