Media Matters

Want to catch up on the media happenings and stories of the week? Look no further than the intelligent and entertaining weekly feature, Media Matters! Each week on Wednesday's Counter Culture show, Maree Buscke and Marty Gibson bust out the highlighters and rustle their papers to bring you all things media, from the sublime to the ridiculous (more often than not, it is the latter).

Tune in from around midday on Wednesdays to listen live, or click on the replays below to catch up on a past session.
