I’m Jessica Yellin, the founder of News Not Noise. For years, I worked in network news at ABC, MSNBC, and CNN, where I was the Chief White House Correspondent. I’ve reported from around the world and won awards. The more years I got under my belt as a reporter, the more I became convinced that the news doesn't speak to a large part of the audience. In the summer of 2018, I did something different. The midterm elections were approaching and friends asked me to explain what the heck was happening in the political cycle. So, I picked up my phone and began posting short, daily explainer videos on Instagram. What started with me and a ring light is now a small team, dedicated to giving you news in a different voice. We aim to provide facts, not panic attacks. We interview real experts — not pundits. My goal is to provide the understanding you need to engage in the conversation and take action in the world.

    The Uvalde and Buffalo shootings were two of at least 18 mass shooting incidents in the US in 2022. How did we get here? Why do we accept this? And what can you do to move the needle? In this special episode, Shannon Watts of Mothers Demand Action and Becky Pringle of the National Education Association answer some of your many questions. Among them: why lawmakers are loathe to pass gun safety reforms supported by the majority of Americans. What teachers are prepared to do to make schools safer. And where you can act to make a difference. Watts has been involved in anti-gun violence activism since the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, and explains where progress has been made. Pringle, a teacher as well as a union organizer, tells us how teachers in America are feeling and why arming them and adding school shooter drills is not the answer.

So what is that, exactly? And how does it find its way into mainstream culture?This conversation with the Anti-Defamation League's Jonathan Greenblatt was taped just days before that shooting. Here Greenblatt explains the origins of the troubling conspiracy theory that motivated the shooter. We discuss Tucker Carlson, extremist politicians, and the role of tech giants and media in disseminating white nationalist ideas. In Greenblatt's view, all this drives a rise in anti-semitism, racism and threats of real world violence.

He previously served as the Special Assistant to President Obama at the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation. He co-founded Ethos Water in 2002, which was acquired by Starbucks.

    The future of abortion in America is on the line. The Supreme Court has just ruled on a case and is preparing a decision on a second that could end Roe v Wade. In this episode, I talk to the co-lead counsel on one of the abortion cases before the US Supreme Court, Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization.Hillary Schneller is Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights. The group is leading the fight against both the Texas 6-week abortion ban and the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban. We spoke Friday, hours after the Supreme Court ruled on the Texas law. Justices found that abortion providers can challenge the state's abortion law in lower courts. But they did not stay the law, meaning the near abortion ban stays in effect and women in Texas can't get an abortion after 6 weeks. It also means that vigilante citizens can bring enforcement cases against abortion providers and others.At the same time the country anxiously awaits a ruling in another case. Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization asks the court to overturn Roe v Wade, and find that women don't have a constitutionally protected right to abortion. In this episode we discuss what the lawyers argued before the court, what it all means, and what resources pregnant people and reproductive rights activists have if Roe is gutted.Hillary SchnellerTwitter: twitter.com/hischnellerYou can follow Jessica Yellin here:Instagram: instagram.com/jessicayellin​Twitter: twitter.com/jessicayellinWebsite: NewsNotNoise.comNewsletter: newsnotnoise.bulletin.comSupport this work:patreon.com/NewsNotNoiseJessica Yellin is the founder of News Not Noise, a channel dedicated to giving you news with real experts and providing information, not a panic attack.
