Politics Pod: After Christchurch

Following the terrorist assault on two Christchurch mosques on March 15, the Gone by Lunchtime team discuss what happened, and its political implications.

Topics discussed include the impact on an often-marginalised community, the move to change our gun laws, the response from Jacinda Ardern and what the event says about the performance of our intelligence services.

Annabelle Lee, Ben Thomas and Toby Manhire also address Islamophobia in the media and politics, how things might be done differently now, and the role of social media.
