In this episode, we ask whether you need shorthand as a freelance journalist. We talk to Marc Shoffman, a journalist and podcaster, and Rachel Charlton-Dailey, a health and disability journalist, about the pros and cons of shorthand, when it can be useful, as well as considering alternatives tools.
