The political scientist Lara Möller and the TV-journalist Paul Fleischanderl meet in this episode of the young talk format Convo Club in order to discuss the role of the media in political education and its influence on the population’s awareness of democracy, especially among younger people. Next to classic formats like the news, heavyweight rounds, and other political talk shows, current political topics are being addressed on humoristic late-night shows and satirical shows. In how far do shows like Jan Böhmermann’s “Neo Magazin Royal” continue to have an effect among the population? How does the media contribute to mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion in society? We are looking forward to another episode of our Convo Club to discuss these and further questions.
