Social Media Directors

Robert Giannetta

Returning to Beyond the Headlines for a second season is Senior Producer and Social Media Director, Robert Giannetta. He joined BTH as he has an interest in analyzing and critiquing pubic policy issues that effect the criminal justice system. Plus who doesn’t want to produce a podcast?!? In his spare time, Rob is an avid nature and travel photographer and someone who actively searches for the best coffee nearby (FYI it’s at 18 Feet Espresso Bar at U of T). His policy interests include: penalogy, the use of data in policing & the media’s effect on framing public policy issues. Feel free to connect with Rob on Twitter.
