#56 - Olympics Coverage & A French Ban On Naming Mass Killers - The Media Podcast with Olly Mann

Olly Mann is joined by Jake Kanter (media editor, Business Insider) and radio exec Trevor Dann to discuss the lack of papers covering Rio 2016, the latest radio ratings and why the French press are refusing to name terrorists.
