Last Thursday, we brought in a panel of experts to discuss gun violence in the United States and the policies that have been proposed in the aftermath of recent mass shootings. In the words of The Philadelphia Citizen, "While there’s no one answer to the question, “How do we end gun violence?” the panelists and the audience explored its legal, social and cultural underpinnings, local efforts to curb gun violence, and ways we could move forward on the issue." You can hear an edited recording of their discussion in Episode 24 of Citizen Cast. We'll host another panel discussion on May 18. The topic for In Conversation with the Rosenbach: Flash Focus will be announced in early May! http://thephiladelphiacitizen.org/podcast/#tile24
