Overview

“Being inundated by information on all sides but not knowing who you can trust is no better than having no information.” So says author Shawn Childers in his book, Life in the Spin Cycle: The Almost Meaningless Search for Truth in Today’s American Hype Culture. The truth in America today, the author claims, is usually buried beneath so many layers of hype and spin that the average American is unable to know what the actual facts are and must choose who to believe. That’s why we fight and argue so much, he says, while accomplishing little. Childers has no Harvard degree, no research staff working for him; he simply dispenses good old American straight talk and common sense spiced by a bit of native humor. So join us as we peel away the layers of the smokescreens in America’s contemporary hype culture and perhaps you too can escape…from the Spin Cycle.
