Media Storm

Where fact-checking meets fun, reporting meets road-trip and the mainstream media meets its match… Media Storm is a news podcast that starts with the people who are usually asked last. “Migrants”, “criminals” and “sex workers” are some of the biggest stars in the headlines, yet we rarely actually hear from them. Here, we provide a space for these minority groups to get their right of reply. From The House of The Guilty Feminist, Media Storm hands the mic to people with lived experience, to shed new light on old stories and roast the headlines that love to roast them.

Best Pick

Three film fans – John Dorney, Jessica Regan and Tom Salinsky – are watching every film which has won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but to keep things interesting, the order is determined by picking them out of a hat at random. For each film, you’ll also learn about what that year’s Oscar ceremony was like, what else was happening in film that year, and how that film got made. Then at the end of the episode the team will give you their verdict as to whether or not the Academy made the right choice, before picking the film to watch next time.
