Entertainment, Music
Words: Joanne Clark | Subbing: Bernadette Galbraith As allegations of sexual assault and harassment in the music industry come to light, I talk to Melissa Svensen, creator of the Don't Touch Campaign. As part of a module on her Multimedia Journalism course, Melissa Svensen was given a brief - "Identify a subject or issue for a piece of campaigning or investigative journalism and produce a series of articles for publication." And so she chose an issue that she was already aware of in the world of music. Melissa is no stranger to the music industry.

Discovering the sound of Christmas

Discovering the sound of Christmas

Christmas, culture, Featured, Music
Christmas is a time of joy, with magic lights hanging all over the city and people giving gifts to each other. But trust us, none of this would make any sense without a good soundtrack. From Bing Crosby's White Christmas, a classic of the season, to Sia's newest holiday album, Everyday is Christmas, we went out in the cold to explore the sound of Christmas. Obviously, we did not chase every Christmas song that was ever made - that would take us at least until 2021, and even then the list would be incomplete.
