Episode 123: Rolling Stone UVA rape story

uvarape

We deconstruct the Rolling Stove UVA rape story.

It was a crazy story about a freshmen student being gang raped as part of a fraternity initation. Now Rolling Stone has walked back some of its reporting, engaged in victim blaming and in general deeply tarnished its reputation. We discuss how monumental of a f-up this really is for a journalism organization.

We also discuss the impact this will have on other rape victims and the culture on college campuses that leads to sexual assault.

As the show title suggests, we also talked about Uber.

We’re trying our best to get on a regular schedule. We have a new recording time that shouldn’t be interrupted by infants anymore.
