S3E21 / Gun Violence in America / Law & Order?

7/11/2019
More
Cops are supposed to enforce laws, reduce crime, and make communities safer. But what happens when cops don’t make people feel safe? When people don’t trust the police? When cynicism about the legal system sets in? And when, as in the case of the Baltimore Gun Trace Task Force, the cops are criminals? Guests: Daniel Webster, Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Director of the Center for Gun Policy and Research, and TEDMED 2014 speaker; Justin Fenton, crime...

S3E20 / Gun Violence in America / The Science of Soft Policing

S3E19 / Gun Violence in America / A Tale of Two Cities

6/15/2019
More
Up until recently, Oakland and New Orleans shared something in common: they had some of the highest murder rates in the country. They implemented some of the same strategies focused on high-risk individuals, but gun shootings and homicides dipped in one city, but in the other, not. Why the difference? Guests: Vaughn Crandall, Co-Director of the California Partnership for Safe Communities; Barbara Lafitte-Oluwole with Oakland Community Organizations; Michael McLively, Director of Giffords Law...

S3E18 / Gun Violence in America / Gangs

5/30/2019
More
Urban gun violence is driven by small groups of high-risk individuals—what some of us call "gangs." They're high-risk for perpetrating violence and for being shot and killed. Guests: David M. Kennedy, Professor of Criminal Justice and Director of the National Network for Safe Communities at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and author of Don't Shoot: One Man, a Street Fellowship, and the End of Violence in Inner-City America; Stan Ross, Program Manager, Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce...

S3E17 / Gun Violence in America / How do criminals get their guns?

S3E16 / Gun Violence in America / Violence Is Contagious

S3E15 / Gun Violence in America / The Big Australian Buyback

4/18/2019
More
Australia shares a similar history and culture to our own. But yet after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996, Australians came to see the need for gun regulation very differently. Australia’s newly elected conservative prime minister at the time passed sweeping gun reform. How did that real-world experiment play out? What happens when you reduce the number of guns in a country nationwide? Guests: Rebecca Peters, former Chair of the Australian National Coalition for Gun Control, and former...

S3E14 / Gun Violence in America / The Instrumentality of Guns

4/4/2019
More
In the late 1950s, England and Wales switched from coal-based gas to natural gas in their ovens, which was a lot less toxic. Suicide rates dropped dramatically. This has a lot to teach us about gun violence. Instrumentality refers to how good a weapon is as an instrument of killing. Gas was cheap, available and lethal — as are guns in the U.S. today. So how can we reduce the instrumentality of a weapon? Guests: Ronald Clarke, Professor and former Dean of the School of Criminal Justice at...

1/10/2019
More
What does it mean to be a “good guy with a gun” versus a “bad guy with a gun,” and how can you tell them apart? Who are the “sheep,” the “sheepdogs,” and the “wolves”? What does it mean to be law-abiding or not? And how much is the desire to own a gun about self-defense versus identity? Guests: Alexandra Filindra, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Illinois, Chicago; Angela Stroud, Associate Professor, Sociology and Social Justice, Northland College; Mary Anne...

S3E7 / Gun Violence in America / She's got a gun.

12/20/2018

Many Americans hold dear the right to a gun for self defense, and the passage of Stand-Your-Ground laws has expanded the right to use deadly force in self-defense in many states.

Guests: Caroline Light, Senior Lecturer of Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, Harvard University; Callie Adams, former Marine, survivor of intimate partner violence, and cleared of murdering her husband; Mary Anne Franks,...

S3E6 / Gun Violence in America / He's got a gun.

12/6/2018
More
There’s an important link between intimate partner violence (i.e. domestic violence) and gun violence. The majority of mass shootings occurs in the context of intimate partner violence. And women are most likely to be killed by an intimate partner — a husband, ex-husband, boyfriend or ex-boyfriend — than by anyone else. Guests: Jacquelyn Campbell, Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing; Ruth Glenn, CEO of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and a survivor...

S3E5 / Gun Violence in America / "Boys will be boys."

Why are guns a symbol, for many, of masculinity? Are boys and men more violent? Or do they turn to violence and guns as tools in the absence of other alternatives to dealing with their problems? Guests: Niobe Way, Professor of Developmental Psychology at New York University, author of Deep Secrets: Boys' Friendships and The Crisis of Connection, and TEDMED 2018 speaker; Benjamin Sledge, former Army Special Operations Command and recipient of the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and two Army...
