Special Edition: The Truth About Gun Violence - Breaking Down the Data

• 19 min

Today, we’re doing our best to cut out any sensationalism or politics about the sometimes-very-controversial topics of gun violence and gun laws, and even how or if mental illness plays a role. Instead, we’re focusing on what the data shows about all of it, like who is really most at risk of getting hurt and the actions that may actually keep people safer. First up, I’m speaking with researcher and practicing emergency physician Dr. Megan Ranney. She’s the co-founder of a nonprofit bringing together medical and public health experts focused on responsible gun stewardship and reducing the rate of firearm injuries and deaths. And because we know mass shootings can often cause anxiety and fear, we’ll chat with licensed family therapist Emma McAdam, who you may know from her popular YouTube channel “Therapy in a Nutshell.” She’ll talk about how to calm those emotions so we can still live the life we want. ​​​This episode is brought to you by and Get ad-free episodes and support the show by becoming an INSIDER:
