My guest today quit his day job over 10 years ago and dedicated himself to that mission. What John Gable came up with is AllSides, a media technology company that rates bias and identifies different perspectives.
The goal — to provide balanced news and information and enable civil dialogue.
When you go to AllSides.com, the first thing you see is three points of view about the same news topic. One from the right, one from the left and one from the center. Read all three and get a more thorough, balanced understanding of the subject matter.
As Founder and CEO of AllSides, Gable brings a robust technology background to the table. Both Netscape and Microsoft are on his resume from the early days of the internet.
Gable and I met a few years ago when I moderated a panel about bridging our divides, hosted by Convergence. We connected instantly and I knew I wanted to share his perspective with the Our Voices Matter Podcast audience.
Our conversation covers the early days of AllSides, the twists and turns along the way, and why John feels hopeful about our future, even in the face of the daunting challenges to our democracy.
It’s an important conversation that I’m proud to share with you.
