Religion Media Centre Podcast: Episode 12

Leo Devine hosts this week’s podcast and is joined by regulars Rosie Dawson and Amardeep Bassey to reflect on some of the top stories including the newly published hate crime figures, moral principles underpinning political decisions and Cardinal Vincent Nichol’s opposition to moving the British embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Two other journalists, veteran Nicholas Jones and Rome-based Filipe Domingues, join the team to consider ethics in public life and the growing phenomenon of “faith voting” influencing elections in Brazil, the US, and Italy.

The Religion Media Centre podcast – the only podcast to sit firmly in the space where religion and the media collide. We ease that relationship, strengthen links that already exist, and be part of building new ones through chat, reflection, and comment, with a panel of regular contributors of journalists, broadcasters, writers, comedians, and experts.
