The selenium isotopes lie at the heart of a tumultuous region of the nuclear chart where shape coexistence effects grapple with neutron-proton pairing correlations, triaxiality, and the impending proton dripline. In this work a study of $$^{72}$$Se by internal conversion electron and $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy was undertaken with the SPICE and TIGRESS arrays. New measurements of the branching ratio and lifetime of the $$0_2^+$$ state were performed yielding a determination of $$rho^2(E0; 0_2^+{rightarrow}0_1^+)=29(3)$$ milliunits. Two state mixing calculations were performed that highlighted the importance of interpretation of such $$E0$$ strength values in the context of shape-coexistence.
