The FFS Show episode 11: Vaccine roll-outs and Peter Geoghegan interview

It’s a bittersweet podcast this time.

Sweet because we have a great interview with journalist and Ferret co-founder Peter Geoghegan, but bitter because it’s Mags’ last podcast as a member of the FFS team.

She’s off to pastures new but still had time to talk through her fact check on whether Scotland’s vaccine rollout is lagging behind the rest of the UK.

Ali spoke to Peter Geoghegan about the link between ‘dark money’ and disinformation, a subject he has reported on widely for The Ferret and openDemocracy.
