Philosopher Thomas de Zengotita devoted 30 years to devising a theory of modern media that could cover everything from wisemouth kids on The Simpsons to wall-to-wall media coverage of Sept. 11. De Zengotita speaks with NPR's Neal Conan and takes calls about his new book, Mediated: How the Media Shapes your World and the Way you Live in It.
