About: Games, Gab & Gossip
Before Social Media was invented, the national conversation started on television. Shows like Donahue, Hard Copy and Oprah brought fresh ideas, debate, controversy and opinion to viewers every day. On this program, we talk with the creators, executives and celebrities who connected us, back in the day. These storytellers used mass media to make intimate topics and personal details part of our national culture, way before Social Media brought that kind of content to the devices we carry around every day.
