In this episode, host Ayush Tiwari is joined by Newslaundry reporters Nidhi Suresh and Tanishka Sodhi.

Nidhi discusses her report on Ayesha Alvi, who was compelled to move court after getting threats for converting to Islam. In this context, Nidhi talks about Deep Shrivastava, a reporter at News 18 who was allegedly mentioned by Alvi in her petition and who filed a criminal defamation case against Nidhi after her report was published.

Tanishka talks about her report on a protest outside St Peter’s Church in Mumbai where Stan Swamy’s funeral took place on July 6. The Jesuit priest, an undertrial in the Bhima Koregaon case, died while in police custody.

This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.

Tune in.
