Masculinity and Gun Violence- Media Pt 1

This podcast was created as a part of Rhetorical Theory project.

 

In this podcast, I talk to David McDonald, Chaplain at Ohio Northern University about the expectations of masculinity portrayed through the media and how that has affected the rates of gun violence. We begin the conversation on why it is that men are the perpetrators of mass gun violence and see that this is not only a gun issue but a gender issue.
