As the Russian attack on Ukraine continues, Ali and Sam spoke to Eoghan MacGuire on this week’s podcast.
Eoghan is the lead editor at open source investigation group, Bellingcat, which has been tracking and reporting on the conflict using publicly available tools and information.
We spoke about how Bellingcat puts together its investigations, the important work of challenging official government narratives, and how openly available technology is a crucial tool in modern journalism.
