J-Talks Live - Fast Forward: Trust, Tech and the Media

Jan. 26, 2021 - It’s all happening—and happening fast across the media spectrum: digital transformation, diversification of newsrooms and efforts to engage the diverse communities media organizations seek to serve. But there are still challenges and more change to come -- how best to connect with those who are typically underserved, whether it be communities of colour, the disenfranchised or the young and disengaged? How can innovations in today’s technology be applied to reach various audiences? Particularly, can technology from the gaming world be deployed to our digital-first storytelling future?

Join Sandra Clark, vice-president for news and civic dialogue at WHYY, the public media organization serving the Philadelphia region, Nadine Ajaka, senior producer of visual forensics with The Washington Post, and Kristopher Alexander, assistant professor with a focus on video games at the RTA School of Media at Ryerson University, in a virtual conversation with host Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the podcast More.

J-Talks Live - Risk and Injury: Journalists, Mental Health and COVID-19

Nov. 19, 2020 -

When the pandemic arrived, journalists on all beats experienced high levels of stress as they pivoted quickly to cover COVID-19, the fastest-moving story of our time. According to the early results of a study conducted in June by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford, participating journalists from around the world showed signs of anxiety and depression—70 percent suffering from some level of psychological distress—due to the many challenges and high stakes they faced in covering the crisis, sometimes in the absence of reliable information. In this ongoing reality, how can journalists take care of their mental and emotional well-being and how can newsrooms best support them?

Join the study’s authors: Dr. Anthony Feinstein, professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto and a neuropsychiatrist whose specialties include exploring how journalists are impacted by the traumatic events they report on, and Meera Selva, director of the journalist fellowship program at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism in Oxford, in a conversation with Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the CBC podcast More.
