After attending a Durham City Council meeting this Spring, a trio of 9th Street Journal reporters collaborated on a jointly authored story. The meeting—and the story—focussed largely on ShotSpotter, a controversial gunshot detection technology that the city may soon adopt.
In the latest episode of our Reflections podcast, Duke professor Stephen Buckley joins student reporters Alex Kumar, Kelly Torres and Zella Hanson to talk about what they learned while covering the meeting, including lessons about journalism and democracy.
You can hear these and other conversations with student journalists on our Reflections podcast, available on Spotify and Apple. Reflections is funded by a generous grant from The Purpose Project.
