On the week of the 20 year anniversary of Scotland’s Freedom of Information Act, Sam and Jas speak to Carole Ewart.
On Ali Brian’s week off, Sam and Jas take over the podcast to talk about The Ferret’s most recent check and give you a look behind the scenes at how it was made.
Carole Ewart, Convener for the Campaign for Freedom of Information in Scotland, joins us for the interview portion of the show. We talk about the history of this piece of legislation, its modern day importance and how the Government may be dragging its feet in protecting this right.
