Last month, as the news about the grooming that is happening on Spotify broke, I was invited to be interviewed on Oh No! Not Another Live Show! as they wanted to help highlight the issue and the very real danger that our children and young people are facing online. I have been a guest on their show before, and am really grateful to the hosts Tim and Christelle for their thoughtful questions and input, and for the opportunity to speak about what is going on.
You can watch the full show here: (100) Gabriella Russo: Safeguarding Trainer – YouTube
