Lewis Goodall, the policy editor at BBC Newsnight, will be speaking at Oxford University Media Society this term, alongside other speakers including Julia Chatterley of CNN and Rianna Croxford of BBC Investigations. The society will also be hosting panels, including a TikTok panel with Business Insider journalist Paige Leskin and a Sex and the Media Panel featuring adult film director Erika Lust, alongside a panel with Gabriel Pogrund and Jim Pickard, who will be shedding light on the Greensill scandal. Cherwell will also be hosting a collaborative panel with OUMS on ‘Reporting Across Borders’ with Sunday Times Chief Foreign Correspondent Christina Lamb. Joe Stonor, President of OUMS, told Cherwell: “Term cards are notoriously a test of nerves but I’m incredibly glad that we have such a strong and topical term card to present to our members. I’m most excited to be hosting a discussion with Gabriel Pogrund and Jim Pickard, the journalists who have led the charge in bringing arguably the biggest story of the year, the Greensill affair and the subsequent revelations of government sleaze, to light. Lewis Goodall in Week 7 is another highlight, as well as a couple of panels that are an exciting progression from the type of events that OUMS usually hosts.” Image Credit: edk7 / CC BY-SA 2.0 Eddie Michael, Head of Marketing at OUMS, told Cherwell: “It’s lining up to be a great term at Media Soc, the events team has secured some great speakers as always and put together some very interesting talks. Especially looking forward to seeing how Joe tackles the Sex and the Media panel!” Agata Hodur, Head of Events at OUMS, told Cherwell: “We’re really proud of this term card and the committee has worked hard to get a fantastic range of events. The online format has meant we can offer a diverse term card to members with exciting events focused both on new media and current affairs. I hope that members enjoy the discussions in The Comments Section, and I am holding my fingers crossed that events later in term may be run in person.” You can see the full term card below: Hope Nicholson, OUMS Secretary, told Cherwell: “I’m most excited about the non-orthodox media events such as the panels on the rise of TikTok and the depiction of sex in the media.”
