Elise Hu's media habits
We asked Elise Hu, NPR International Correspondent, Seoul, South Korea, about her media habits: “what – and who – are you paying attention to?”
What are you listening to/watching these days?
Ooof, this is embarrassing, but not much. I work from home so I have no commute, which means if I listen to anything I really have to MAKE myself listen. My favorite podcast, Grantland’s Hollywood Prospectus, has now become a Channel 33 podcast called ’The Watch,’ after Grantland’s (tragic) demise. I listen to that on the rare occasion I exercise.
I’m watching Showtime’s new political docuseries, The Circus. I am on the opposite side of the globe and clock from the U.S., so I miss all the nanosecond-long news cycles in American media. The Circus steps back and gives me the presidential race narrative in the only content I really need, which is a once-weekly show.
