Hello there! Didn't see you come in! Have a seat and pull up some trending news for yourself. Also, want to talk about shorts? No? Ok, back to the news. This week in Beyond the Headlines: the Boston Marathon had some notable finishers, Theresa May called for an election in the UK government, Georgia, USA also held a special election this week, radio personality Alex Jones has made a surprising reveal about himself, Youtube channel Daddyofive is in hot water over alleged abuse shown on their channel, and April the Giraffe has given birth! Also this week, the story of a horrendous act of violence broadcast over Facebook and the conversations about monitoring live content that it has sparked. We also revisit some old stories this week: United (as well as American and Delta) have made some policy changes, Bill O'Reilly is on his way out over at Fox, and correspondent Rachel Stine joins us to discuss new developments regarding the Fearless Girl statue. All that, plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy and would you kindly share?

Note: We have warnings in the show, but we discuss a story about abuse and a story about gun violence this week. So, if you would like to skip those stories, we have warnings in the ep so you know when to skip forward.
