Description

In our world of 24-hour news cycles and constantly updating Twitter feeds, it's easy for important stories to drop off our radar. In MediaFile’s newest podcast, we bring “re-breaking” news coverage to these stories, many of which still have significant impacts on people’s lives. While other news outlets move from headline to headline, we dive into stories that we’ve all heard of but might’ve forgotten by interviewing journalists, politicians, experts, survivors, and more.

With media coverage now almost exclusively devoted to the coronavirus pandemic, countless stories may be left out of the media spotlight. Some stories, such as immigration or gun violence prevention, may not be getting as much attention, but may nevertheless have unique intersections with the pandemic. MediaFile's Podcast Director Michael Kohler launched “Long Time, No See” almost a year ago with a vision to focus on what happens to stories when they fade from mainstream coverage. And this goal is more relevant now than ever before. If there is a story you want covered during this time, send Michael your topic and guest recommendations at mkohler@mediafiledc.com or @KohlersVoice on Twitter.Become a MediaFile Patreon Donor: http://www.mediafiledc.com/donate/Audio Clips: ABC News, Politico, Fox News, NBC NewsMusic: “Side Hustle” by Otis GallowayLicense: CC BY 4.0Support the show (http://www.mediafiledc.com/donate/)

Today, June 4th, is the 100th anniversary of Congress's passage of the 19th Amendment. Despite this historic landmark, the 19th amendment doesn't go beyond voting rights.

When we think about the people most afflicted by the American opioid epidemic, we often think of white, rural communities. But new evidence suggests that most of the reporting and discussion around opioids is overlooking communities of color that are struggling with addiction. In the first of two episodes investigating the contours of the opioid epidemic, Michael interviews Dr. Edwin Chapman, an expert on addiction treatment who has been helping patients here in Washington, D.C. for 20 years. Dr. Chapman offers insight into the African-American communities that are at the heart of the crisis, as well as insight into how we can successfully help those at the heart of the epidemic.The music in this pod was created by Greenss.

In this world of 24-hour news cycles and constantly refreshing Twitter feeds, it is easy for important stories to become lost, to fall off our radar. In MediaFile’s newest podcast, Long Time, No See, we bring “re-breaking” news coverage to these stories, many of which still have significant impacts on people’s live. While other news outlets move from headline to headline, trying to stay on top of the next big, sensational story, we at MediaFile are taking a step back. We want to dive deep into stories that we’ve all heard of but might’ve forgotten about.  With this podcast, we’re challenging the notion that news has to be new. In each episode, we’ll be asking important questions like “Has anyone actually been held accountable for the death of Jamal Khashoggi?” or “Whatever happened to the Space Force?” We’re exploring these stories, uncovering what happens when an issue leaves the media’s spotlight. We’ll be interviewing interesting people; journalists, politicians, policy wonks, survivors, scientists, many of whom were on the front lines when the story originally broke or are even still on the lead, trying to bring attention to these issues. Our goal with this show is to challenge people’s perception of the news. We want to prove that news stories are more than just the clips and sound bites that you hear and see on TV. Even after the camera crews pack up and leave and our Twitter feeds fall silent on the issue, these stories continue to develop.Host/Director: Michael KohlerProducer: Amalia Mobley Multimedia Editor: Caroline CorbettMusic: Rob ClineSupport the show (http://www.mediafiledc.com/donate/)

After more than a year of sustained protests calling for democracy in Hong Kong, Beijing has cracked down on the movement, implementing a new national security law banning any actions associated with the protests. Protest posters have been torn down, prominent pro-democracy activists have fled the city, and people have wiped their social media of any evidence of participating in the protests. Award-winning photojournalist Laurel Chor describes the climate of uncertainty felt in the city since the new law has gone into effect. Become a MediaFile Patreon donor: https://www.patreon.com/MediaFileMusic: “Side Hustle” by Otis Galloway [License: CC BY 4.0]Support the show (http://www.mediafiledc.com/donate/)

#11 - EARN IT Act

2020-07-0641:36

The future of the internet is being decided upon in the Senate right now. In a time of growing use of end-to-end encryption and a heated debate over content moderation on websites like Facebook and Twitter, it is crucial to understand the laws that allow the internet to be an open and free platform. In this episode of Long Time, No See, Michael Kohler sits down with Adi Robertson, a senior reporter at The Verge, and India McKinney, director of federal affairs at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, to dive deep into the EARN IT Act, a bipartisan bill that proposes regulating Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects Internet platforms from liability over content posted by users, in order to fight the spread of child sexual abuse material online. Robertson and McKinney provide background on the consequences of previous regulations on Section 230 and how these new attempts may affect users’ Internet experience.Become a MediaFile patreon donor: https://www.patreon.com/MediaFileMusic: “Side Hustle” by Otis Galloway [License: CC BY 4.0]Support the show (http://www.mediafiledc.com/donate/)

Does anyone else remember when the President announced he was creating a 6th wing of the military, which he proudly dubbed the “Space Force?” This episode features an interview with Jacqueline Klimas, a National Defense reporter at Politico, who breaks down what Trump actually accomplished after he announced his intent to create a military force dedicated to space operations. It turns out that the Space Force is already taking shape under the Department of Defense, and there aren’t any space marines or laser beams involved. Klimas explains why a Space Force is surprisingly necessary while discussing and debunking popular expectations of a Star Wars-esque division of astronaut troopers. An interview with MediaFile Editor in Chief Rob Cline follows up on Klimas’ take on Space Force and how it’s a part of the race for next-gen tech like 5-G and AI. If you like this episode of Long Time, No See, leave a rating, subscribe to the show, and keep listening.

2019-03-2630:04

Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and international journalist, was murdered last year - allegedly at the direction of the leader of Saudi Arabia. Many months later, Saudi Arabia has shifted accountability and avoided repercussions. In the first episode of Long Time, No See, Michael Kohler interviews Adam Coogle, a Middle East researcher at the Human Rights Watch and an ally to Jamal Khashoggi. Less than six months after Jamal Khashoggi’s death, the news media has all but moved on from the story, and Congress’ discussions of holding Saudi Arabia accountable have diminished. Coogle gives us insight into the future of Saudi Arabia’s global standing and the potential for accountability in the wake of the murder.Coogle is an expert in Saudi Arabia and human rights violations across the Middle East, and he and his team worked directly with Khashoggi. Later in the episode, Michael sits down with Celine Castronuovo, the MediaFile International Section co-editor, to discuss the media implications of the story.If you like this episode of Long Time, No See, leave a rating, subscribe to the show, and keep listening.
