Media Storm

Hosted by Helena Wadia and Mathilda Mallinson, Media Storm is the award-winning 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.

Winner of ‘Best Current Affairs Podcast’ at the 2022 British Podcast Awards.
