Episode 295 - The Christchurch Massacre
Episode 295 - The Christchurch Massacre
On the 15th of March, 2019, a 28-year-old man walked into a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, holding a shotgun and semi-automatic rifle – and opened fire. And what set this story apart was not just its brutality, but also the way it was staged – from the internet, for the internet. The gunman had strapped a GoPro to his helmet, and was streaming every second of the Christchurch shooting over Facebook Live. And just before he entered Al-Noor mosque, he said to his online audience: “Remember lads, subscribe to PewDiePie.”We look at online radicalisation, the deep internet meta-humour that was littered through the manifesto – and the role of platforms like 8chan and YouTube in the rise of far-right terrorism.--If you would like to take up the offer of the 6 month free trial to Wondery+ just click HERE or visit don’t forget - you’ll be automatically charged $4.99 a month after the end of the 6 months, so if you don’t want to keep W+ be sure to cancel!If you have Amazon Prime - but still can’t access ShortHand via amazon music - unfortunately you are in a region that doesn’t have access.
