Has media consolidation made us less informed? Has it turned us into an angry, divided nation? Broadcasters, for over half a century, were required to serve the public interest—defined as promoting localism, diversity, and competition—in order to keep their licenses; then, in 1981, that requirement was gutted. Have we underestimated the lasting effects of broadcasting’s abandonment of those public interest goals and what that means for our society?

Hearing Voices: Modulating a Revolution tells the story of our nation’s struggle to give diverse voices access to airwaves. Media experts and broadcasting veterans help unravel questions of danger lurking in the air. The true story of radio, forgotten and never before told on film, unfolds with alarming relevance to today’s world.

Structured as a highly visual, historically and philosophically probing, acoustically rich three act story populated by rare and unseen archival material Hearing Voices offers a lively investigation into the decades long struggle between those who wish to promote radio as a democratizing informative force, and those who see radio only as a tool for profit, influence, power and sales.
