"Flashpoint" and the Shaping Influences of Journalism and Media | LV Arts Salon

Dr. Kerric Harvey (left), Arun Chaudhary (center), and the late George Miller (right).

Kate Scuffle premieres George Miller's last directorial effort, the audio drama Flashpoint, in which a trio of radio news professionals find themselves at unexpected odds with each other and themselves about the best way to report the January 6, 2021 assault on the U.S. Capitol.



The broadcast is followed by a post-play conversation about the double-edged roles journalism and media play in shaping our understanding of these events with Flashpoint's writer, professor Kerric Harvey and special guest Arun Chaudhary, an American political operative who worked on both Barack Obama’s and Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaigns.


This feature includes web-exclusive content, only available at wdiy.org or on the WDIY app.

Tune in to Lehigh Valley Arts Salon every Monday from 6:00 to 6:30 PM following All Things Considered.
