This week on Spin Cycle, Jess Lilley and Najma Sambul jump on the line with author, writer and entertainment reporter Patrick Lenton, to talk about the ins and outs of pop culture reporting in 2022. In particular, asking the question 'how does one report about pop culture and entertainment news, when what's happening around the world is filled with doom and gloom?'
Plus, Spin Cycle's own Charlie Lewis phones in directly from Federal election campaign trail and Jess and Najma briefly reflect on Australia dropping down to number #39 on the World Press Freedom Index.
