Episode 7: Our Covid Inquiry

There are urgent questions to ask – of the government and the public sector. But also of ourselves – the media.

This week on Behind the News, the podcast that takes you inside our newsroom, our editors discuss the Tortoise Covid Inquiry, which is taking place across three consecutive Fridays in November and December. While we’ll be asking questions during the inquiry, we – the media – face questions ourselves. Are we prone to focus on the failures rather than successes? Are we too quick to call for blood? We’re also joined by the social welfare adviser Dame Louise Casey.
