The FFS Show 33: Are Councils Working?

Sam and Ali are back with a special podcast about our latest ‘Are Councils Working?’ series in conjunction with The Herald.

We take a look at how the series came together, and what hurdles our writers have to overcome when looking into local government.

Freedom of Information woes and inconsistent data release are discussed with Ferret journalists Jamie Mann and Paul Dobson. Listen here.
