A means for the illiterate to acquire political opinions. Talk radio operates on the philosophy that a person should choose a side in political debates (usually either 'staunchly liberal' or 'staunchly conservative'), then incorporate that side into their personal identity. This frees them of the need to submit to bothersome processes like thinking for themselves.

Talk show enthusiasts can be identified by their dogmatism and easily excited sense of self-righteoous indignation.

A means for the thinking people of the country to discuss such matters as politics and social issues. Most popular talk radio is of a conservative nature, which is due to the strangle hold that The Left has on main stream news organizations.

You will know people who regularly listen to talk radio. They are usually employed, have a sense of right and wrong and follow a code of ethics.

a website for right-wing neo-nazi egotists, run by such a person who is also a capitilist
the real CEO is someone called "flylady", whilst Anal Levy is her lapdog
one of the best sites on the internet if you want to see people denied their right of free speech, nepotism, and people who don't have a clue about how to run a company
robyn: id host a show on blog talk radio simon, but im not a racist capilist who hates freedom of speech
simon: but i hate non-americans and love people who deny others their rights then pat each other on the back
robyn; if you're that derived of being human, then they may offer you a management position then especially if youre nepotist too

Any highly speculative, masturbatory 'debate' that's contingent upon a number of non-linear factors and goes in circles by virtue of its lack of focus or concrete resolution. More often than not an excuse for both sides to simply show off esoteric knowledge of a subject without any real interest in getting anywhere. See: 99% of Sports talk radio.
These two clowns on MSNBC were trying to read the tea leaves of Obama's Syria strategy but it soon degenerated into Sports Talk Radio because neither one of them had any new information or insight.

This means that when you start a conversation with someone, they don’t know when to shut up, and keep going on and on.

You switch on a radio, and it keeps broadcasting until you turn it off.
Guy 1: Man, that brother of yours just doesn’t know when to shut up!

Guy 2: Yeah, I know. He’s like a talk back radio.
