“Excellent journalism, thorough and empathetic” – The Guardian

Media Storm is a multi award-winning investigative news podcast that starts with the people who are normally asked last.

From ‘illegal immigrants’ to sex workers, survivors to prisoners, indigenous groups to trans people, many communities caught in the eye of the media storm are denied a fair voice in the coverage around them. Media Storm restores ‘right of reply’ to underrepresented minorities and equips listeners to take the mainstream media with a pinch of salt.

Behind Media Storm podcast lies Media Storm News, an ethical news platform founded by the show hosts, Mathilda and Helena. The platform campaigns for minority representation and firsthand lived experience in news reporting, provides media training to underrepresented communities, broadcast training to journalists from diverse backgrounds, and speaks in newsrooms and policy spaces about editorial and structural reform of the news space.
