Our Echo Chambers
We are surrounded by echo chambers, and not just on social media where our opinions are often reinforced by friends and family.
Traditional media is contributing to a different type of echo chamber, where concepts like trust, power, influence and expertise are repeatedly associated with a certain look, culture, or gender (plenty of stats here, here and here) – i.e. straight, white, males.
Escaping the Echo Chamber
If you’re tired of seeing the same types of people on TV, the same faces in the newspapers, and the same ideas on your social media feeds, Echo Chamber Escape was made for you.
Echo Chamber Escape covers interviews with those who are not regarded as ‘Majority’ about mainstream issues. We talk to women in tech, people with disabilities, professionals of various CALD backgrounds, LGBTQI+ people, Aboriginal and indigenous people, and more.
Storytelling is powerful. We know that the bigger the platform someone has to share their story publicly, the more influence, power and respect that person is likely to generate.
By providing a platform for people of diverse backgrounds to share expert advice, opinions and experiences, Echo Chamber Escape aims to:
- Prove to mainstream media that sourcing diverse views is smart business
- Prove to readers that consuming diverse views is valuable
- Prove to experts of all backgrounds that their voices matter
If you’d like to be featured or know someone who’s views and opinions deserve a platform, let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
Echo Chamber Escape was founded by Mylan Vu.
