The FFS Show is back with a brand new format, guests, segments, music and more!
This week we fact check a claim about ‘negative efficacy’ of the Covid-19 vaccines in Scotland, which caused a bit of a stir overseas. We speak to Jenna Corderoy from openDemocracy about Freedom of Information requests in the UK, transparency and PartyGate.
Finally, we launch a new segment where every week a different person asks Ali to fact check a different fact. This week we check how much food production really happens in Brazil.
