Listen to How Does The Media's Role in Covering Mass-Shootings Incite Further Gun Violence48:042 June 2022

This week on Spin Cycle, the team is joined by special guest Dr Glynn Greensmith, Journalism Lecturer at Curtin Uni, and ABC broadcaster/researcher. Glynn hops on the line to talk through the recent mass-shooting events in the United States and the role that media organisations play in how they report on gun violence and how this coverage can perpetuate and cause more violent events.

Plus, Jess, Charlie and Najma reflect on the return of gigs and live music in Melbourne, take a break from Australian Politics and unpack some of their recent reporting and journalism work over the past week.
