Part one: The News Meeting Live
Good quality journalism is an essential tool in the battle for truth.
Join us for a special live recording of The News Meeting, the new hit podcast which invites you into the editorial meetings at Tortoise. In every newsroom around the world there’s a daily meeting to decide what leads the news, what follows and in what order.
Three journalists pitch the stories they think are most important to James Harding. In this special episode, the studio audience will have its say, but will James agree with them in his pick for the top spot?
Part two: The Tortoise interview with Jolyon Maugham
Jolyon Maugham KC founded Good Law Project with the belief that the law can put power in the hands of ordinary people, and shine light into corners the establishment would rather keep dark – from the failures of Brexit to the still-developing PPE scandal, to the tax arrangements of business giants.
Here at Tortoise Lates, Jolyon Maugham discusses his new book, ‘Bringing Down Goliath’ and reveals the stories behind these landmark cases and the hidden fault lines of our judiciary system. He offers an empowering, bold new vision for how the law works better for all of us in the fight for truth and justice.
