The FFS Show 27: From the Margins and citizen reporting with Rachel Hamada


Sam and Ali are back for podcast 27 of The FFS Show, and its a special episode to tie in with The Ferret’s From the Margins series.

The project involved Ferret journalist Karin Goodwin helping to train citizen journalists with lived experience of addiction, homelessness and mental ill-health to report on how these issues interact for many Scots.

In this special tie-in episode, Sam and Ali are joined by community journalism organiser Rachel Hamada, who has experience working to build community reporting in her role at Bureau Local. She also happens to be one of The Ferret’s founding journalists and a current board member.
