Podcast: How the National Journalism Center and I Are Training New Reporters on Gun Politics

This week, we’re doing something a bit different.

I’ve been working with the National Journalism Center for a long time. They have a great program to train up and coming reporters. And we’ve been doing a range day as part of that training in recent years.

So, the program’s director T. Becket Adams joined me on the show to discuss what our gun reporting lesson looks like. He also gave his assessment of how much of the media covers firearms, the problem with the approach, and the solution to it. Part of that solution, he said, includes real-world training on key issues in gun politics as well as on how guns function.

That’s exactly what we give to the young reporters who come through our class. Becket said our program is the only of its kind he’s ever heard of, and hopes other groups and media outlets adopt or replicate what we’re doing.

You can listen to the show on your favorite podcasting app or by clicking here. Video of the show is available on our YouTube channel. An auto-generated transcript can be found here. Reload Members get the show on Sunday, as always. Everyone else can listen on Monday.

This week’s news update is also available in audio or video. Contributing Writer Jake Fogleman and I discuss the ATF’s new rule casting a cloud over used gun sales, Tennesee putting school safety training in schools, and much more.
