The Lizzie & Jo Podcast, Episode 1: Caroline Flack & R. Kelly

This week’s podcast is the Lizzie and Jo Podcast: students Lizzie May and Josephine Abosede discuss the coverage of Caroline Flack and R. Kelly in the media today and compare the two.

Both prominent figures in society are linked with forms of abuse on their partners, with Caroline Flack accused of assaulting her boyfriend and R. Kelly accused of many sexual assault and rapes of predominantly underage girls.

What both Lizzie and Jo find interesting is how opposite the coverage has been: the two have such drastically different circumstances, with Caroline Flack being demonised in the media and an issue that was blown out of proportion, and R. Kelly’s alleged abuse claims being hugely underrepresented in the press.

Give it a listen!
