Podcast: "Breaking Down the Story: What Happened Inside Ed Buck's Apartment"

The first of a new reporting club series about the story behind the story, where journalists from across the country will speak about the articles they've written. 

In this first webinar, Jesse Barron (@_jessebarron) discusses his recent article in The New York Times Magazine called "What Happened Inside Ed Buck’s Apartment?" (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/16/magazine/ed-buck-case.html?action=click&module=Editors%20Picks&pgtype=Homepage). 

Barron's article is a deep dive into a local crime story about how, and why, two young men died of meth overdoses inside a West Hollywood political donor's apartment. It weaves together many different themes about power, money, lies, addiction, media misinformation and predatory racial profiling.

NYFWA board member and Bloomberg reporter Olivia Carville (@livcarville) moderates the event.
